Dear Licensed Prosthetist, We are Doctor of Physical Therapy students from Touro College in Bay Shore, New York engaged in an area of inquiry related to individuals with lower extremity limb loss. We are requesting your participation in our study regarding prosthetic prescription trends. Our research seeks to gather qualitative information from prosthetists across the country. This study is part two of a three part research design, which aims to determine if what is being taught in accredited Doctor of Physical Therapy programs throughout the United States aligns with what prosthetists are currently providing for their clients. We have attached a survey which will ask a few demographic questions about your facility, and general information on your preferences for prosthetic socket and componentry prescription. The data collected in this survey will be deidentified to maintain your anonymity. Your clinical experience and input is of great value to us and we hope that you will take a few minutes of your day to complete this survey. By completing this survey, you are consenting to participate in this study. Thank You, Dr. Frances Corio PT, PhD, OCS, Dr. Robert Troiano PT, DPT, CHT, Meaghan Gallery SPT, Alexander Guzman SPT, Nicholas Jiacopello SPT, Thomas Rados SPT, and Kalvin Tang SPT Touro College Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2019

Hopefully you saw the announcement that in light of the impacts of COVID-19, we decided to publish 10 issues of the O&P Almanac in 2020, combining June/July and November/December. We did not reach this decision lightly, but it allows us to pass along the savings to members. Despite this change, you can still rely on the O&P Almanac to deliver quality content. The June/July issue is coming soon, but in the meantime we encourage you to visit our O&P bookshelf for archived issues from 2009 to the present.

In the following video, Director of Education and Clinical Support, Justi Appel, discusses the importance of product selection in getting the right AFO for a patient, as well as interface options.

Allard also offers AFOs that are boldly labeled ”Not-For-Resale”. These are designed to be used as initial assessment tools to evaluate functional improvement, patient acceptance and as a gauge to decide which Allard AFO will work best for the patient as well as what modifications will be necessary to optimize the patient’s gait pattern. Contact your District Manager today if you are interested in these Gait Assessment tools.

Taking care of your mental health is extremely important. #mentalhealthmonth

May is Mental Health Month. Read this personal story from Irene Blum about her experience with limb loss and mental health:

This Memorial Day we honor and thank all the brave men and women who have given their lives serving our country. #memorialday

The Black American Amputation Epidemic

A very interesting and informative article on policies written by hospitals, insurers, and the government that don't require surgeons to consider limb-saving options before amputating causing an increase in amputations, particularly among poor, black Americans. Black patients were losing limbs at triple the rate of others. The doctor put up billboards in the Mississippi Delta. Amputation Prevention Institute, they read. He could save their limbs, if it wasn’t too late.

Talk about giving back! “Being able to do that and show someone that there is life after amputation, it’s not the end of the world, no matter what you want to do, that’s the best part of my job I swear it,” said Nicole Grehn who lost her legs in 2015 and has since become a nurse.

Milwaukee woman who had both legs amputated helps save lives as a nurse:

This Mom Decided to Amputate Her Son’s Leg. Now, He’s a Thriving Triathlete

In case you are in need of a #feelgoodfriday, we've got you covered. Jack O’Neil's mom decided to amputate his leg when it was apparent it was hurting rather than helping him. Now, at age 17, he’s a thriving triathlete. #prosthetics When it was clear that salvaging Jack O’Neil’s leg was hurting rather than helping him, his family made the ultimate call.

It was such an honor to speak with Senator Tammy Duckworth during our 2020 Virtual Policy Forum this week. She is a true champion for O&P and those living with limb loss and limb difference. Thank you for all you do Senator.

AOPA thanks the more than 200 advocates who tuned in for yesterday’s 2020 Virtual Policy Forum. We’re grateful for the those who took the time to write their members of Congress and urged them to include language in the next COVID bill which would distinguish orthotists and prosthetists from suppliers of DME. We encourage those of you who were unable to attend yesterday to write your legislators. To do so visit
