A little inspiration during these hard times, we will get through this and be stronger because of it.

This U.S. Coast Guard prosthesis turned out pretty awesome. Our patient Jeff was very happy with the final product, and is doing incredibly well with it. Back to riding ATVs, playing golf, and everything else he used to be able to do.
Carson City CrossFit
If you have been thinking about CrossFit and intimated about the movements. Here is a great example of how we can modify and work with all athletes in a class.
Peter has been with us for a year and half and he never makes excuses of what he can't do. He will always say "I will try first". We modify movements depending on how he feels that day. Local friend and fellow CrossFitter Scott Forrester from Forrester Custom Prosthetics made a Carson City CrossFit leg for Pete about 2 years ago from our Tshirt design.
A big shout out to @Challengers athletes foundation for helping make @CrossFit possible

It's our pleasure Peter!
Forester custom prosthetics makes my legs so that I can have a quality active outdoor lifestyle. Thanks for always being there for me. Peace!
Please sign and share this petition to rescind the Medicare proposal that will restrict access to prosthetic limbs!
Medicare, through its contractors, has proposed new coverage, coding, and clinical care guidelines that would have a profoundly negative impact on amputees across the United States.
Our patient Carlton sent us some awesome pictures and newspaper clips from his high school football days in 1983. He flew out from NYC a couple months ago to get a new pair of prostheses because he wanted to get back into sports. He is now excelling on his new pair of Forrester made prostheses.
We are now accepting patients with Prominence Health Plan.
This is our patient Valente, a blind, bi-lateral amputee! We are very happy to have documented his first steps in his new prosthesis. Working with patients like this is the reason we love this business.
Never seen anything like this before!
