Amputees Amplified – Amputee Resources for Canadian Amputees

Hello and welcome to Amputees Amplified, the newly-redesigned website and resource directory for Canadian amputees. Amputees Amplified was originally published in 2003 to provide support and resources for new amputees and their families.

If you have anything to share, such as anything pertaining to how you overcome any certain task that you feel may help other amputees, please visit my Facebook page at Amputees Amplified.
