An unexpected pattern emerged from the results of last year’s Amputee Community Survey, which Amplitude cosponsored with The Liner Wand. On a broad range of subjects, people have a hard time finding programs and services to improve their lives.
The information is out there. But it’s so disorganized, and dispersed across so many sources, that you have to spend a ridiculous amount of effort sifting through the digital haystack in search of the needle you’re looking for. You type a few words into Google (“amputee hiking club,” for example), and you end up with page after page of results that might or might not answer your question.
There’s a glaring need for a user-friendly one-stop shop—a comprehensive, single-source directory that delivers accurate, relevant information about amputee programs in an easy-to-use format.
That’s why Amplitude teamed up with the Liner Wand to create our new directory of community resources for amputees. Introduced in April, during Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month, the new directory lists hundreds of community organizations that support amputees in all sorts of ways, from mental health to physical fitness, social contact, financial benefits, legal advocacy, and beyond.
It’s the most up-to-date, interactive resource of its type—and we’re just getting started. With the community’s help, we’re going to keep adding more listings and better features.
