What can we say, we had a blast! The Amputee Coalition Conference last month was an incredible event bringing together hundreds of amputees from all over the country. Here are a few of our favorite moments.
1. Meeting UNYQERS in Person!
We were stocked to meet so many UNYQERS running around with their personalized prosthetic covers, showing off their style with pride! It was seriously inspiring to see so many of you showing off your covers so proudly. That’s the type of energy that fuels us to keep pushing the future of prosthetics and soon orthotics forward!

At the UNYQ booth, we measured many people for covers and showed off the latest collections of prosthetics covers, including the UKIT, which has 3 styles in 1 pack. If we didn’t get a chance to meet you in person, check out our growing list of UNYQ hubs where you can get measured and see our covers in person.
2. Getting Glamorous by the Pool
We took the opportunity to do an impromptu photo shoot with photographer Jacquelynn Buck at the conference hotel. Many thanks to Erin, Travis and Mike who got up at 4 in the MORNING to shoot before the Arizona sun (or in our case, desert rains) came out!

3. Watching our Friends Learn New Skills
There were a number of super cool clinics for amputees to try rock climbing, yoga and other activities. For many people, the conference was the first opportunity they’ve had to try new sports. Here Erin worked on climbing skills, showing us how nimble she is with her C-Leg 3.

Looking forward to the next Amputee Coalition conference in June 2016. See you then or perhaps at AOPA next month!
