Top 10 ways to lead a healthy lifestyle post Amputation

We understand that amputation can take a toll on your physical and mental health. In this process of gaining normalcy in your lifestyle, one of the most important things is to cater to your health – i.e. to focus on your nutritional uptake to form a healthy bond with your body.

We’re here to let you in on the top ten ways that will definitely help you achieve your healthy lifestyle. Take a stroll through : 

  1. Taking care of your water intake – We all know that more than half our body is water content. It regulates our bodily functions. You should drink at least 2 litres of water every day!
  2. Decrease your Sugar intake – Try to switch from sugar rich foods to fruits to crave your sweet tooth. Sugar intake often leads to lethargy and may cause inflammation.
  3. Aiming for the Greens – Leafy green vegetables are a great source of nutrition to place in your diet.
  4. Focussing on Protein consumption – We are told to consume protein to build muscle, but that is not all – protein consumption helps in healing tissue repair, and immunity building. Depending on your dietary preference; for non-vegetarians, you can seek high protein food like fish or chicken. For vegetarians, seek sources like legumes and beans. 
  5. Focus on food contents that promote wound healing – Apart from protein intake, focus on Vitamin C and E intake. You’ll find it in food content like Fruits (citrus especially), nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, etc.), milk, eggs and so on.
  6. Cutting the plate size – If you’re advised to cut calories, start using smaller plates. If you’re still hungry after eating smaller portions, go for a refill, you’re less likely to over-consume via this method.
  7. Switch to healthy eating – Avoid junk food as much as you can. Switch from soda to juices, from junk oily food to healthy alternatives. It’s a lifestyle choice!
  8. Plan your meals – Planning your meals for a week ahead gives you ample control over your consumption and reduces the chance of junk food intake.
  9. One step at a time – Don’t aim on bringing all the changes in one go, start with the small steps and slowly build your routine!
  10. Consult a nutritionist – It is always great to get professional advice and follow it religiously.

Apart from these focus on your exercise routine as well. For below knee amputees and for above knee amputees – refer to these.

INDIA, 14 JULY, 2022: Japan based world’s first 3D-printed prosthetic legs maker Instalimb raised 445 million yen (₹ 26 crore) in Series A funding in Japan (including investment, loans, and grants) to foray into the Indian market and launched its technologically advanced prosthetic wear solutions in Gurgaon on 1st of July. 

Instalimb promises value proposition to the Indian market by revolutionizing prosthetic socket fit and production process that is widely scalable, does not require much space and does not require manpower with specialized skill. This game changing start-up aims to deliver the highest-quality prosthesis leg with socket (tech) and alignment (PO quality) to 48 million people who currently do not have access to a device in the world. 

Selected as a “J-startup” by the Japanese government as one of the best technology start-ups in Japan, Instalimb products are inspired by 3D and AI technology that offers the much-needed comfort and desired fit for the end users.

According to multiple research around 70% of amputees develop skin related issues associated with prosthetic wear. It also revealed that an ill fitted prosthetic can restrict rehabilitation and pose balance issues for amputees. Taking these findings into consideration, it was observed that it is important for a prosthetic leg to have the right design along with a good socket fit. Instalimb products are strategically developed with advanced technology, superior quality and affordability that will help users to not only walk comfortably but also climb the steps with ease. 

In fact, Instalimb’s dedication and confidence in the socket quality enable them to be the only clinic that provides test socket and test fitting for free. The company knows that any amputees can see the difference in quality.

Yutaka Tokushims, CEO, Instalimb, said: “Instalimb is an innovative approach towards the prosthetics industry. Issues related to socket fit were identified as the biggest factor affecting rehabilitation by around 50% of amputees and 66% of clinicians. Instalimb has taken efforts to meet the expectations of the end users. With our launch in India, we are expecting to reach out to a larger set of individuals who need this kind of advanced assistance and help them to get back their active lifestyle.”

Funded by the Japanese government, Instalimb has connected with eminent hospitals like AIIMS as well as one of the largest organizations, Jaipur Foot for collaborative projects.
