Many new amputees are under the mistaken impression
that the loss of their limb means the loss of mobility and a
sedentary lifestyle. However, statistics show that most amputees
are able to return to a level of activity they had before the
amputation surgery. Many walk, hike, bowl, golf – and some even run
or jog. Being active is good for the body and mind and helps
develop and maintain the muscles of the residual limb so the socket
fits more securely.
