THE AMPUTEE COACH

and as if losing a limb wasn’t enough..

Most people, especially those who lose a limb through a truamatic event get very little to no information about how to move forward, what to expect, what the process is for getting a prosthetic or wheelchair, keeping or getting a drivers license, peer support or even the National Disability Insurance Scheme or any of the other important or helpful things you need to know about.

As an amputee myself it took me years to find out about all this and more. In fact the hospital I was in didn’t give me any information or HOPE, actually they took all hope away. They told me all the things I could never or would never do, some of it wasn’t even true, like I would never walk or even be able to get a prostheitic or that I couldn’t ride motorcycles anymore. They were basically setting me up for a boring and miserable existance.

Did you know..

In Australia there are over 10,000 new lower limb amputations every year, and that number keeps growing.

314,286 PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA USED A WALKNG AID OR WHEELCHAIR IN 2015 ACCORDING TO THE AUSTRALIAN BUREAU OF STATISTICS.

IN 2017 THAT NUMBER INCREASED, CURRENTLY MORE THAN 639,000 PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA WITH A DISABILITY USE A MOBILITY AID


The Wheely Good Bag is already in some hospitals in Sydney and Newcastle and more Hospitals are on a list waiting for new bags to be made and delivered.

so here’s what I am doing about it…

I don’t want anyone to ever go through what I did, so I created The Wheely Good Bag. New, lower limb amputees get The Wheely Good Bag for FREE in the hospital from thier PHYSIO. With help from The Amputee Association of NSW, The Wheely Good Bag is chock full of everything you need to know when you first lose a leg, plus some fun stuff too, like how to get involved in wheelchair ports, Wheelchair Sports, Sailability (learning to sail for people with a disability) and Wheelies with wings (learning to fly an airplane for people in a wheelchair). There is also a book called the Amputee Coach which has been donated by the Author Cathy Howell (one of Austrlias top Physios for Amputees). This is just some of the amazing stuff that is in The Wheely Good Bag.
