Enable. Train. Serve.
Our goal is not only to enable mobility for the patients we serve, but also to enable the development of technology so that other prosthetists, mission groups and nonprofit organizations can serve patients all around the world through our training and innovative designs. We hope to enable others with the skills and materials necessary in order to make affordable prosthetics available worldwide!
In order to expand our scope and reach, we realize we must train others to take the same processes and materials to the various regions of the world where they are already serving. There are many individuals, groups and organizations that would like to provide high-quality, durable, and proven prosthetic devices in the developing world but do not know where to begin. With over 10 years experience in overseas clinics, combined with our research and development of innovative technology, we want to share knowledge and make affordable prosthetic care available to all. We are in the process of creating training courses for developing world prosthetic care as well as for 3D printing and design techniques.
Currently, LifeNabled serves residents in the Petén region of Guatemala by providing free, bi-annual prosthetic clinics at Hospital Shalom in San Benito. These clinics allow us the ability to not only give new prosthetic opportunities to those who otherwise can’t afford it, but it also allows for on-going support and follow-up care to previous patients, especially pediatrics who grow quickly!
