Former patients pave the way for amputee hockey and a future Paralympic Team
Lee Havemeier, 22, and several other Shriners Hospitals for Children- Twin Cities former patients have earned spots on the United States National Amputee Hockey Team and hope to claim victory at the 2002 winter games. Havemeier, who was born without his left hand, has played hockey since his childhood. Last spring, Havemeier attended try out camps; his hard work paid off when he opened a letter sent by the American Amputee Hockey Association dated October 31, 2001. It read, "Congratulations! You've been selected as a member of the US National Amputee Hockey Team for the 2001-2002 season." "I'm excited to be a part of this team, " said Havemeier "because if we are provided the opportunity to perform well in the Salt Lake exhibition game, the Paralympics is likely to pick us up as an official team for the 2006 winter games." Alongside Havemeier, three other Twin Cities patients Heather Ewasiuk, John Morton, and Karl Stuemke also plan to win in Salt Lake. But these four teammates have more in common than hockey, they also have received care in the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Twin Cities prosthetic department for a limb deficiency.

102. One Arm Dove Hunt
Event for arm amputees in the Nation. Now in its 25th year, no arm amputee should miss this experience.
33rd Annual
One Arm Dove Hunt
T he 33rd annual One Arm dove hunt will be held in Olney, Texas on September 10th and 11th, 2004. What started in 1972 as a shooting contest between several local arm amputees has grown in the intervening years into an annual event that attracts over one hundred people, most of them amputees, to this small farming community 50 mile south of Wichita Falls, Texas. While still called a dove hunt, fellowship and helping recent amputees come to terms with their new situation is the primary focus of this two-day event. This is the only event on Earth that gives someone who has lost an arm an opportunity to meet and learn from those who have overcome a similar loss. Nothing medical science can offer compares with the positive peer support amputees receive at this event. Kay Doyle, of Missouri, who lost her right arm as a teenager said, "I have been on the mailing list for several years but never came, she said, because I thought it was just a hunt, but I've discovered that this is really a family reunion and I'll be back every year. You've got to be here to understand what it's all about. No arm amputee should miss it." Jack Bishop, retired County Commissioner and Jack Northrup, retired Olney City Manager - known around Young County Texas as the One-Arm Jacks - share a passion for hunting, teasing and out talking each other.

Amputee soldier denied access to club
The shoes he uses with his prosthetic legs didn't meet the Clive bar's dress code. By BRIANNA BLAKE
Register Staff Writer
Abby Jackson, wife of Spc. Robert "B.J." Jackson, 22, who lost his legs in an explosion last August while serving with the Iowa Army National Guard in Iraq, says her husband was denied access to an upscale nightclub in Clive on Friday night because his shoes weren't fancy enough. "Both of us told (an employee) that those were the only shoes he can wear with his prosthetic legs," Abby Jackson said Saturday. "I even told them he lost them in Iraq."

Text Source: Boston Courier -We need to rebuild self confidence in our patients IPRLS - International Institute of Prosthetic Rehabilitation of Land mine Survivors, was founded at Tafts University, Boston, MA in April, 1998. Founder was Dr. Mark Pitkin, formerly of St. Petersburg, Russia - currently professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at Tafts. In June of 1998 First International Conference was held by IPRLS which discussed the Program of the US-Russian Prosthetic Rehabilitation Bridge. Russian side was represented by St. Petersburg Institute of Prosthetics, the oldest institution of this profile in the country. 12 patients , including 4 children , are completely rehabilitated now as a result of the unification by Bridge of American technology and Russian experience. But this program is aimed not only on physical rehabilitation after the reconstructive surgery and prosthetic fitting." "We need to rebuild self confidence in our patients. We would like them to believe and to prove to them that they don't need to distance themselves from any kind of activity, that they are valuable members of our society", says Russian specialist Konstantin Scherbina.

The phenomenon is not as rare as one might think: healthy people deliberately setting out to rid themselves of one or more of their limbs, with or without a surgeon's help. Why do pathologies sometimes arise as if from nowhere? Can the mere description of a condition make it contagious? by Carl Elliott N January of this year British newspapers began running articles about Robert Smith, a surgeon at Falkirk and District Royal Infirmary, in Scotland. Smith had amputated the legs of two patients at their request, and he was planning to carry out a third amputation when the trust that runs his hospital stopped him. These patients were not physically sick. Their legs did not need to be amputated for any medical reason. Nor were they incompetent, according to the psychiatrists who examined them. They simply wanted to have their legs cut off. In fact, both the men whose limbs Smith amputated have declared in public interviews how much happier they are, now that they have finally had their legs removed. Discuss this article in the Science More on politics and society in The Atlantic Monthly and Atlantic Unbound.

106. Amputee Stopped For 6 Week Periods
The new amputee learns that the stump sweats. Wetness causes irritation. Drionic special applications device stops excess sweat for 6 week periods.
New, Improved Special Applications Drionic controls excess sweat in bothersome areas Home
Hand/Foot Device

Underarm Device

Surgical Problems

Dryness then becomes a significant factor for the amputee in a number of skin problems that are often associated with excess sweat. The inadequacy and impracticality of frequent sock changes and prosthetic removal is a thing of the past with the use of Drionic. HOW IT WORKSDrionic is a battery operated device that is connected to two free floating felt pads. The pads are tap water wetted and then strapped to the amputee stump as illustrated. The small current transmitted to the skin causes blockage of the sweat pores. Treatment thus ends and 6 weeks of sweat control inhibition begins. Simple re-treatment starts another cycle of 6 weeks of sweat control. The Drionic Special Applications device can also treat other areas where excessive sweat becomes a problem. Such areas can include the groin or crotch areas, and the buttocks. The use of the Drionic Special Applications device for other than the amputee must be obtained through physician prescription and its use under the supervision of a physician. The specialty most familiar with excessive sweat and its control is the dermatologist. Consult with your dermatologist regarding the use of the Drionic Special Applications device.

108. Tim's Home Page - Retired Police Officer And Above-Knee-Amputee
Above the knee amputee gives practical advice for those who wish to cycle, including pedals, mounting and dismounting, seat height and prosthetics.
This site is under reconstruction! I've left my personal story up until I get the new site finished. My name is Tim McCarthey. I'm a retired police officer in the city of Bethany, Oklahoma. Bethany is a suburb of Oklahoma City with a population of approximately 25,000 people and 24 police officers. I began working as a police officer in February of 1997 after graduating from college in July of 1996. I was a patrol officer and a bicycle officer. Most of my shift was usually split between the two. Both the fire department and the ambulance were in the park that day and were able to get to me and load me in the ambulance in only a few minutes. I was then rushed to the hospital, unaware that my leg had been severed. I remember the intense pain and the feeling that my leg was still there. In the back of my mind I knew that I would loose my leg that day and I was terrified. The ride to the hospital was something that to this day still gives me goose bumps when I think about how officers from four different agencies blocked intersections and escorted the ambulance to the hospital. I've been one of those officers, blocking intersections and escorting the ambulance, I never thought that I would ever be one of the officers in the ambulance. It's amazing how police officers come together to help each other. In the emergency room, the officers who had been with me from the beginning stayed with me until I was taken into surgery. I knew by looking at the officer's faces that I was in bad shape. Every officer in that room was crying. That day there were several officers who cried and prayed. While in the emergency room, the on-call surgeon told me that he didn't do reattachment but he could call another doctor that did. That's when I realized that my leg had been severed. I told him that I wanted to keep the leg. After the other doctor's arrival, I was taken into surgery.

Every new upper extremity amputee should have a personalized action plan detailing the steps involved in order to fully maximize his or her rehabilitation
Every new upper extremity amputee should have a personalized action plan detailing the steps involved in order to fully maximize his or her rehabilitation potential. Often this plan is formulated with input from the Physician/ Surgeon, Therapist (Physical and/ or Occupational), Case Manager/ Rehab Coordinator, Prosthetist, Psychologist, and Amputee. Areas addressed are therapeutic intervention, post-surgical intervention, prosthetic intervention, psychological intervention, goal setting, activities of daily living, and return to work.
A good place to start your research and education is our Prosthetic Options Page. This section describes each of the six prosthetic options available to upper extremity amputees. While reviewing this section, keep in mind that:
  • Certain options may be more appropriate than others based on many factors such as level of amputation, condition of residual limb, and individual goals and work requirements, and,
  • Often more than one option may be required for an individual to accomplish all of his or her goals.
    A qualified prosthetist can discuss your specific needs and perform an Initial Prosthetic Assessment. This involves a thorough physical evaluation which may include range of motion, muscle strength, EMG signal strength, skin condition and various other tests. You may also discuss your personal and professional goals, family involvement, personal preferences, home life, hobbies, and funding issues. A qualified prosthetist should be able to answer any component or prosthetic design questions or concerns you may have.
