Donation of Prosthetic Limbs
Through the Given Limb website, we receive many questions about what to do with prosthetic limbs that are not being used anymore. Often when a family member who was an amputee passes away, the family members don’t want to discard his/her expensive prosthetic limbs, and are looking for some way to donate them to someone who is in need. To our knowledge, there is no clearinghouse or agency that tries to match unused prosthetic devices with amputees in need. We welcome feedback from anyone who has had experience donating prosthetic limbs, or who has knowledge of organizations that facilitate such donations.
