Ultra Prosthetic and Orthotics patient representative Stephani has started an amputee and prosthetic support group so that fellow amputees have a way to share, discuss and work through challenges. This group allows those who need it to talk with others who understand what they are going through.

The group meets monthly and is open to all amputees, regardless of who their prosthetic company is. The group allows amputees of al ages and back ground to come together and not only discuss their challenges but to socialize and meet other people. The Carson City based group includes Reno and surrounding areas.
