Idaho’s rugged outdoors are now more accessible than ever for people with disabilities
The Idaho Statesman did a really great article on accessibility in Idaho and video on the First Climb Event in Boise that Coyote Prosthetics and Orthotics sponsored along with an interview including Coyote’s CEO Matt Perkins.
Local ABC TV Affiliate did a really nice “Made in Idaho” segment on our company.
We like to hear how our donations have made a difference.
Ghana – Brothers Tarcissius P&O Training Center
I’m following up quite late with this thank you note. Attached to this message are some photos from our visit to the Brother Tarcissius Prosthetic and Orthotic Training Center (BTPOTC) in Ghana. They have a 3 year P&O program. We were there for two weeks to assist with the third years final exams. During the 2 weeks the students evaluated and casted someone in need of a KAFO or a transfemoral prosthesis, and then fabricated and fit the device. Below are photos of the 1st and 2nd years in class saying thank you for the plaster spreaders and thumb drives (they really appreciated the thumb drives!). We gave these items to the third years as well; you can see one of the third year students modifying his cast in preparation for test fitting. The 4 hole connectors were incredibly useful. You can see them preparing to do a one step lamination with the 4 hole connector positioned at the distal end of the cast in the photo of the guy holding the PVA bag. The last photo you can see the pyramid at the end of the laminated socket. Finally, we gave the plaster mixing bowls to the instructors.
Thank you again for donating these useful and generous gifts to share with the program in Ghana. We really appreciated being able to bring these tools to them.

Orthotics and Prosthetics Activities Foundation (OPAF) put together a really nice video.
If you are not familiar with OPAF they put on a series of First Clinics for amputees.
Check if they have a clinic in your area. They do a really nice job.
