Tina wrote--So thankful for this group! You guys have no idea idea how helpful you have been over this past year. This has been a crazy journey and it's nice to know you're not in it alone. Now for my lengthy post/question.. My brother had a work accident one year ago last December. He was recovering well, practically running on his prosthetic up until November. He ended up requiring another surgery due to muscle moving and his bone needing be cut a little more. Of course his settlement was completed about 2 weeks prior to the decision from his MD to have another surgery. He has been off work since January (he has a manual labor job and can't return until he back on a prosthetic.. looking like that will be April). He currently lives with family so finances have not been a concern this go around, however, my concern is what he will do in the future when he has a mortgage, family, etc. Are there insurance policies or anything he can obtain for future surgeries and missing 3-4 months of work? Thanks in advance for any tips/advice!

Jeremy wrote--What are people's thoughts on the Pro-flex XC? Prosthetist is recommending it since a lot of his patients like it, and it gives free vaccuum. I previously found the Harmony P3 incredibly high-maintenance and unreliable, plus it will be nice for room for a good shock absorber/torque. Trying the foot out this week but just want thoughts on how it is long-term/reliability/etc. Thanks!

Here is an awesome research opportunity!

The CHRIL is currently looking for individuals with disabilities to participate in their research efforts.
