News and events
With the warmer weather and Memorial Day coming up on May 29th there’s plenty of opportunities for socializing. But with your PICC line in place and your cancer treatment schedule well under way, socializing isn’t always top of your agenda. That’s why on the occasions you do feel well enough to party, you need to go for it! Have a bath. Put on your favorite outfit. Get out there and enjoy yourself.
There’s never a good time to pick up an injury, however minor it may be. The first thoughts that go from most of our heads when we feel a twinge, break, tear or sprain of how our bodies are going to fix themselves and get back to their best – and that’s before we even know what’s happened or how long it’s going to take.
Here at LimbO we know just how good a long run can be. Whether you’re a professional couch potato or a distance running regular, going for a run can give you a big emotional boost, even on the rainiest of days – not to mention the massive health benefits that come with a lot of exercise. Running, though, can be a minefield of injuries – everything from strained muscles and twisted ligaments, sprained ankles, shin splints and ‘runner’s knee’ (you know it’s a big sport when it has its own condition named for it…).
Hi everybody! First of all, sorry for not publishing here for a long time - a lot has happened over the last couple of months at LimbO and we've been working our fingers to the bone to bring more of our waterproof protectors to the public than ever before. Unfortunately, that has meant we couldn't find the time to update our news pages for a while, but we're back now with some good news.
If it wasn’t for the invention of the plaster cast, there probably wouldn’t be such thing as a LimbO. Here’s a little bit about the history of orthopaedics… You might be wondering why it’s called orthopaedics. Well, Nicholas Andry coined the term in 1741, deriving from the Greek words for ‘correct’/‘straight’ (‘orthos’) and ‘child’ (‘paidion’). This is because originally, orthopaedics was only used to treat musculoskeletal deformities in children.
