We Can All Be Philanthropists
In anticipation of my upcoming interview with Adenike Oyetunde, I would like to share another inspiring TEDx Talk by her. Do yourself a favor and please watch this short video. It's a real treat and full of simple but powerful insights. It's a timely reminder that helping others is not only about money.
The Power Of Giving Is Not Only About Money
Post by Bjoern Eser, the creator of The Active Amputee.
Please meet Jasmin and Andreas
This week I have the pleasure to talk to Jasmin and Andreas. Both are above knee amputees. Both haven't been amputated for very long. Both have had a long odyssey before their amputation. And both are currently testing the revised Genium X3 by Ottobock. Today I would like to introduce them to you. And tomorrow we will hear more about their experiences. read more
Testing the new Genium X3

They shared their personal stories with us, told us about their plans for the future and what they expected from a prosthetic device to help them live their dreams. Today we hear more about their experiences testing the revised Genium X3. What tasks did they put the knee to and how did it perform? read more

Swimming, snorkelling, diving, kayaking, surfing - no matter which one of these activities you fancy, they are all great fun and well worth a try. read more
