Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins


3 Ways A Custom Prosthetic Limb Could Improve Your Life

Technology has come a long way when it comes to caring for people who have lost limbs. Not only are wheelchairs more diverse in their capabilities, artificial limbs have had many advancements in technology and customization. Whether you were born without a limb or lost a limb to injury or disease, there are three ways getting a custom prosthetic made could benefit your life.

Customized Prosthetic Limbs Offer You Balance

When missing an arm or a leg, you may struggle with balance issues. Using a prosthetic that comes in a general size but isn't built specifically with your measurements in mind can cause balance issues to continue to be an issue. Custom artificial limbs can be designed to be similar to the size, weight, and shape of your other limb, whether that's an arm or a leg, a hand or a foot. This will help you achieve the natural balance you had before you lost your limb.

Customized Prosthetic Limbs Help Provide Privacy

There are some people who may prefer that people didn't know they were missing a limb or limbs. With a custom design, limbs can be made with coverings and colors that are similar to your skin. If you have an advanced prosthetic built that has joints as part of the construction, you should be able to use your artificial limb in many of the activities most people enjoy, and nobody will have to know that your limb is artificial.

Customized Prosthetic Limbs Are Much More Comfortable

Having a custom limb made perfectly for your body will provide you much more comfort. Among the problems facing people who wear non-customized prosthetic limbs is that they hurt or don't fit right. Although customizing a prosthetic limb may cost more, it will be much more likely that you'll use it and wear it long term because it will fit you the right way. You can also have your customized limb adjusted and shaped to adapt to changes in your body, which is a nice benefit to have in the long run.

Although losing a limb can be a challenge for many, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't still live the active life you always have. With technology and medical advancement in prosthetic limbs, there may be a product out there that will allow you to keep living at the pace you always have.

Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
