Amputee care : Winter is here!

As winter approaches us with full force, we must be prepared for what is coming. As an amputee (both above and below the knee), we understand that this can be a new challenge. The freezing temperatures not only cause joint pains but also make daily tasks and travel complicated. 

Worry not, we’re here to help you simplify your winter preparation. Take a look at these five tips below: 

  1. Skin care – Your skin gets dry and may crack. While using an artificial leg, your dry skin may increase friction within the socket leading to further pain in movement and skin damage. To prevent it, moisturize your stump at regular intervals and keep your socket clean. 
  1. Limb volume fluctuations – The cold may constrict your blood vessels and lead to poor circulation in your stump. It might cause numbness and shrinkage. Try to keep your stump warm and consult a good prosthetist to guide you through.
  1. Be careful while walking – The frost and fog on your path may cause you to slip, taking short strides and wearing shoes with good grip will help you through the upcoming cold. If your area has heavy snowfall, it’s always best to invest in additional support such as a walking stick. 
  1. Battling joint pain – As the temperatures drop, your joints feel restricted and movements are painful. To resolve it, incorporate stretching and mild exercises to your daily routine. They will help you to have proper circulation in your joints and muscles. 
  1. Nutrition –  Consume foods that contain Vitamin D, such as milk, grains, eggs, and yogurt among others. You can also take a Vitamin D supplement. 

Apart from these, do follow our One Stop Guide for Every Amputee, for detailed information on every matter.

Life-changing story of an Instalimb Amputee

If you lose a limb, it is the end of the world. right? 

Dinesh Kumar Panchal, an amputee and victim of a car accident at the age of twelve, had no idea what life had in store thereon. As shared by him he was an athletic child, always running around, playing sports which came to a halt all of a sudden. Then began the journey of utter transformation. In his lifetime he has tried using crutches, a wheelchair, and around 5+ artificial legs. The need for artificial legs over the former is an important decision. If you’re struggling through the same as an amputee, please check here

For Mr. Dinesh, the choice came easy as it allowed him a sense of normalcy in his surroundings. Yet, over the years he had issues with his limbs. Moreover, one turned out too tight, one was loose, and one even cracked after little usage. In his quest of finding the right limb, he reached Instalimb. And then, it was a smooth ride from online consultation, free test fitting, to final device. You must hear his experience through him – click here!

Additionally, in his words, “Instalimb’s leg is not comparable to any of the legs I have used in the past 27 years. The moment I tested its socket, I knew the difference immediately. I learned what the fit means for the first time and how much my residual stamp is actually capable of controlling the movement of the device. I wish I could have known about Instalimb much before. On top of that, people here are so welcoming and loving, that makes my life as an amputee much easier.”

Most of us go through a lot to find the right device that fits our needs. We strive to build a network which makes it easier for you to decide and get your own artificial leg.

Why do you need an artificial leg?

Deciding on getting a prosthetic or artificial leg requires a lot of thought and consideration. There are a range of available options for you to choose from: crutches, wheelchair, walkers, and ofcourse, prosthetic legs. 

While getting the former 3 options doesn’t require a lot of hassle, they restrict your movement. Wheelchairs won’t allow you to use your good leg, crutches can in turn cause crutch palsy, and walkers won’t allow freedom of movement. While artificial legs not only provide you with freedom of movement but give you a sense of normalcy. Now you are getting a clearer picture of why you need an artificial leg.

Let us elaborate on the process!

  • End goal – If you desire to walk normally, attend school/office, run, jump, hike, etc a prosthesis gives you a range of options that will aid your goal. Most importantly, it will help you attain a high quality of life. 
  • Getting ready for prosthesis – This process involves bandaging and exercises, as a new amputee you must have someone to guide you through the process. (If you don’t, we’re here to help you every step of the way – contact us)
  • Test fitting – This is one of the most essential steps in getting the artificial leg and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. For choosing the right fit, we all deserve a trial. We at Instalimb, make sure you receive a fair and free of cost test fitting to make an effective choice.
  • Making adjustments and final fitting – When you choose to opt for a prosthetic leg, you should get a full scale PO support on multiple adjustments until you are satisfied with your device.
