LLEMWhy is Limb Loss Awareness Month is important?  

Many individuals in the U.S., and around the world, are living with limb loss. For most, they feel isolated, alone and separated from society as a whole. This is mainly due to the lack of education and awareness, and sometimes a lack of empathy from those they are surrounded by.

Limb Loss Awareness Month is an opportunity to get the word out. To share with others what it’s like to live life as an amputee: the struggles, the challenges, the accomplishments and the victories!

Sometimes amputees just need the right “tools”, along with ALL the support and encouragement they can handle!

Know that we at Fourroux are here for you! Join us at Fourroux, as we celebrate Limb Loss Awareness Month.

Fourroux Prosthetics is excited to be celebrating 65 years of service to amputees & their families!

Fourroux Prosthetics Transportation Service

Fourroux Prosthetics was originally founded in 1955 by George Fourroux and provided orthotics and prosthetics services to local residents in the Huntsville area.  During the last 65 years, our organization has grown significantly as well as narrowed our focus to becoming a nationally recognized prosthetics facility, having served amputees from around the world.  While our corporate office remains in Huntsville, AL, we have expanded their service to Birmingham, Al, Memphis & Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA.

Keith Watson, Fourroux’s owner explained:

“This year marks a significant landmark for our organization. 65 years of providing the highest level of care in prosthetic products and services to all levels of amputees and their families. We don’t just provide a prosthesis, we provide an experience. One that is rich in quality care, education, the use of innovative prosthetic technology and patient outcomes. We provide a gateway to an improved quality of life for amputees and their families.”

Once you receive your prosthesis, hopefully you are well on your way to lifelong mobility. But in order to maintain or increase that mobility, prosthetic follow-up appointments are necessary to stay on that path.

Initially when you receive your first prosthetic device, your prosthetist should have explained to you that your limb will change rapidly, and in order to maintain that intimate fit with your prosthetic device, follow up appointments should be made regularly within the first 6-12 months. This is necessary until your limb shape and size starts to settle and maintain a consistent volume.

Lifelong Follow-Up Care
It is important to allow your limb to adapt to your prosthetic device. Once that has occurred, the need for follow-up care is less frequent, but still valuable and necessary to maintaining and increasing your mobility.

Over time, as you wear prosthesis, you may find the need to have minor adjustments done, a new socket made, or simply the need for newer more advanced type of prosthetic technology.

Some of the reasons a good lifelong follow-up program is so critical to an amputees care and success, are as follows:

Prosthetic Fit  - New amputees will change shape rapidly. Seasoned amputees can change due to a variety of reasons, including weight fluctuations, health, medication, activity, age, and more.

Weight Fluctuations - If you have increased or decreased your overall weight, that will affect the size and shape of your limb, thus your prosthetic fit.

A Change in Activity  - If, for instance, you have increased your activity, this can have an effect on prosthetic fit or how your prosthesis utilized. You may benefit from different technology that is more suitable to your activity change.

Prosthetic/Component Wear  - Like most things, prosthetic componentry can wear from prolonged use. It’s important to have your prosthetic device checked regularly for any signs of wear or deterioration.

A Change in Lifestyle  - Increased or decreased activity, changes in where you live (your house or the local traverse), or specific activities you now enjoy can be affected by your prosthetic choices.

Advanced Technology  - Technology is ever advancing, and you may benefit from that new improved technology.

Lifelong follow-up programs are necessary for amputees to get the most out of your prosthetic device. It is an opportunity for you to be able to communicate with your prosthetist, to share any issue that you may be having, or to simply discuss your life and any changes to it and how your prosthetic device plays a role in your daily living.

Let us help you get back to living your life to the fullest.
