It is no secret that an active lifestyle decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease, depression, and weight gain. This is an even more pressing issue within the amputee population. Believe it or not an amputees risk of cardiovascular disease, depression, and weight gain are far greater than that of their able body counter parts.
Lawall is launching a new program and challenging our patients to bring themselves to the next level. In 2018, Lawall will begin a Sports Performance Program! It is called the Lawall Adaptive Sports Team! The sole purpose of this program is to reach out to the amputee community and help empower them to reach their next level of performance. Whether it is walking, running, or swimming more often or racing and playing at a more competitive level we want to help. This program will be inclusive of both prosthetics and orthotic patients. Lawall believes there should be no limits to what our patients can achieve. We will make any adaptions and reach out to our resources within the O&P field to help maximize each athlete’s potential. Join Team Lawall and take the first step in your journey toward a healthier lifestyle and see just how far you can push yourself!
