Limb Loss Information Service
Welcome to the Limb Loss Information Centre. This online resource has been created to guide individuals with congenital or acquired limb loss and their friends, family and carers through the emotional, physical and psychological process of coming to terms with limb loss.
We have taken a holistic approach to limb loss and hope that through this we can provide relevant and useful information on all aspects of life after limb loss. We have tried to make the site as easy to navigate as possible and hope that you can find the information you need.
The Limb Loss Information Centre (LLIC) is a website designed to be a central resource of information for amputees, individuals with congenital limb absence, friends, family, carers and healthcare professionals.
We hope that this website will be able to provide the answers to any questions you may have.
Our objectives when creating the site were to:
- Build a central source of information available to answer any question an amputee or their family, friends, carers, employer may ask or may need to make informed choices.
- Provide a national forum for limb service users to enable you to voice your needs and requirements.
- In conjunction with other support agencies, create a template for establishing and managing a user group. The site will provide the user groups with a national forum to share information and ensure that you, the users, are receiving useful and consistent information.
- The website will have a primary focus on the community and will, in addition to providing a knowledge base of information, provide community facilities such as chat forums, newsletters, product feedback and feedback/contact mechanisms.
