The O&P EDGE Publisher Launches Amputee Consumer-Focused Media Company

Posted January 9, 2014

Tonja Randolph, president of Western Media, Northlgenn, Colorado, and publisher of The O&P EDGE, has launched Amplitude Media Group (AMG), a new media company that will focus on providing news, information, and resources for individuals with limb loss, their families, and caregivers.

The company’s first product, the 2014 Limb Loss Resource Guide, will debut at the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists Annual Meeting & Scientific Symposium on February 26, in Chicago, Illinois.

“Prosthetists and others in the O&P professional community have been asking us for years to develop practical information that they can give to their amputee patients,” Randolph said. “So we started asking people in the limb loss community if they would be interested in receiving additional resources from us, and they overwhelming said yes. We’re excited to be able to provide prosthetists and their patients with what we believe will become an essential guide to preparing for, adapting to, and living with limb loss.”

Karen Henry, director of editorial and special projects for Western Media and AMG, is the editor in chief of the Limb Loss Resource Guide. Henry was formerly the editor in chief of The O&P EDGE.

“We wouldn’t be able to offer this guide without the help of my coeditor Rick Bowers and a wonderful team of writers; the expertise of countless healthcare, business, and legal professionals; and the experiences that individuals with limb loss have shared with us,” Henry said. “Creating this guide has been incredibly rewarding.”

More information about the Limb Loss Resource Guide is available at Randolph said that the AMG website will be expanded over the next several months to include even more information for the limb loss community.
