Bjoern Eser from The Active Amputee blog provides all the information you need to live an active and rewarding life as an amputee. He invites you on a journey to explore the endless possibilities people with a limb difference have to try out new activities, constantly pushing the boundaries and extending their comfort zone. In monthly interviews, Bjoern talks to other amputees, sharing their inspirational and encouraging stories. He chats with people from the industry, learning about new and exciting developments in the prosthetic sector. And he provides regular updates on funding opportunities, support groups and support schemes that assist amputees from managing their day to day life to fulfilling their wildest dreams. Being an amputee himself, Bjoern can draw on 15 years of experience and countless adventures on four continents. And he is more than willing to share his knowledge freely to encourage others with a limb difference to be active, to be adventurous, to be happy.The music - as always - is Urbana-Metronica (wooh-yeah mix) by spinningmerkaba (c) copyright 2011 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license. http://dig.ccmixter.org/files/jlbrock44/33345 Ft: Morusque, Jeris, CSoul, Alex BerozaTo learn more about The Active Amputee, check out the following linksThe Active Amputee BlogThe Active Amputee on InstagramThe Active Amputee on YouTubeThe Active Amputee on TwitterThe Active Amputee on LinkedInThe Active Amputee on Pinterest
