Enter contest to win free prosthetic leg, physical therapy

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Prosthetix Shop has partnered with Rehab Resources to award a free prosthetic leg and physical therapy to a local amputee in Cincinnati.

Nominations for this first-time ever M.A.P. (Mobilizing Amputees with Prosthetics) Award are being accepted now through May 1st. 

"Just think what it would feel like to be stuck sitting in a chair, always having people talk down to you. Now imagine trying to get a glass out of your cupboard – not so easy on one leg. Add navigating insurance challenges to the mix, and you've got your work cut out for you, to say the least. But we can help, and that's why we created the M.A.P. Award," says Aaron Moles, licensed and certified prosthetist and owner of Prosthetix Shop.

Anyone can nominate an amputee. Healthcare professionals providing care for them or for someone at immediate risk for amputation are encouraged to nominate their patients for Cincinnati's Prosthetix Shop and Rehab Resources' M.A.P. Award.

The winner will receive both free prosthetic care and the crucial follow-up therapy amputees often require to enjoy long-term success with their new prosthesis. 

The winner and recipient of the award will be notified and announced by May 15, 2014. The award value may total as much as $21,000 in free care.
