Amputees Together May 16, 2013 Tampa Meeting Recap

Our Amputees Together meeting on May 16, 2013 was a hit! The theme was ‘How It’s Made’: an opportunity for amputees to go ‘behind the scenes’ at our on-site central fabrication laboratory, where our Clinical Director, Bridget L. Augustine, LPO, CPO, and lab manager, Brian Whitacre, took the group through every step of prosthetic fabrication.

The evening started with dinner from Central Park Restaurant (yum!) and round table introductions, a great chance for each person to share. For those of you who don’t know, our individual prosthetic rooms at the corporate office location open into one large room that’s perfect for group meetings. That space sure came in handy, as you can see from the photo! The conversations during dinner were engaging, inspiring, and really helpful.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the free evening of great food, conversation, and learning.

Our next meeting will be held at the same location
(Westcoast Brace & Limb, 5311 E. Fletcher Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33617) on Saturday, June 15th, 2:00 p.m.
The focus of June’s meeting will be to introduce us to simple movements, exercises, and stretches designed to help us with our balance, stability, and strength. Our guest speaker will be Certified Personal Trainer & Corrective Exercise Specialist, Robert ‘Bobby’ Puckett III.
