The Prosthetic Foundation was established in 2010 as a 501 C (3) nonprofit organization to help uninsured and underinsured amputees throughout Texas. The Prosthetic Foundation is committed to ensuring amputees receive a prosthesis and the follow-up care essential to regaining mobility and independence.
The loss of a limb can create a severe challenge and prevent an amputee from being able to perform the activities of daily living that many of us take for granted. The physical and psychological independence that a prosthesis can provide not only affects the amputee but can make a world of difference for their family and everyone around them.
A prosthesis is also crucial in preventing additional health complications from being sedentary in a wheelchair.
