Resources & Links

In our mission to get more people back in the water, we often meet and talk with people and organizations that offer value in some way to the amputee community. While we have a degree of confidence in these organizations, we share these links with you as a courtesy—not as an official endorsement—and count on you to determine their fit with your needs.

Let us know if you’d like your organization added to our Resources page. Contact us at
