As a prosthetist who has worked throughout the United States, I constantly heard the same question again and again: “How can I get prosthetic supplies on my own?”
Traditionally, the only way was through a prescription and your prosthetist. This usually began with calling your doctor for a prescription, then calling your prosthetist for an appointment and ultimately calling your health insurance carrier to make sure everything was going to be covered.
There had to be a better way—one that allowed you to invest in yourself.
And so, in 2006, I founded Amputee Store.
We want to be your most trusted partner for prosthetic supplies and expert content.
From the moment the idea for Amputee Store first came to mind, I couldn’t get it off the ground fast enough.
In those early days, I would race home to my studio apartment and launch myself into my “passion project.” I taught myself how to code and filled my living/bedroom to the brim with products and boxes that needed to be shipped all over the country. It wasn’t uncommon for my neighbors to catch me flying down the stairs, hopping on a bike, and chasing down a UPS carrier with an urgent Next-Day package for some of our first customers.
I was definitely out of my comfort zone during those early days and anxious about how Amputee Store would be perceived by the community. The support that we received right out of the gate was absolutely mind-blowing and further fueling my passion to curate the best products.
My obsession with curating products or creating educational content meant my friends didn’t see me for weeks—I’m pretty sure they thought I got lost in the mountains of boxes that filled my apartment—and yet it was one of the most exciting times in my life.
I’ve been extremely fortunate to be able to dedicate my life to building Amputee Store ever since . . . albeit with a slightly better work-life balance!
