In this episode of the We’re not Stumped podcast, I have the honor of speaking with all four executive members of the Limb Care Foundation. The mission of Limb Care Foundation is to promote multidisciplinary approaches to limb salvage, function, and patient quality of life through relevant & meaningful education, advocacy, and outreach. The Limb Care Foundation and their executive members are driven by a desire to provide preventive limb care to those in need and educate the future generation of health care providers on the importance of limb health.
They are a DMEPOS (Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics/Orthotics & Supplies) donation center. They will collect your unused or gently used medical equipment and get it in the hands of someone in desperate need. See their website linked below for more information. They also aid the homeless. The Limb Care Foundation is dedicated to reaching out to homeless communities and providing them with much needed medical equipment and supplies that help to promote limb health and awareness. This population is very susceptible to amputations that could largely be avoided with proper care and preventative measures.
