If you missed my audio conference

Saw this on the O&P list serv last week.
Someone wrote in and wanted to know if anyone else was getting requests to guarantee that their patients' legs would not come off on certain amusement park rides.

You could get some (as Posh Spice would say) MAYJAH publicity by piggybacking on that post.

Here's some info right off of Cedar Point's website

Tower_PowerProsthetic Devices

Guests with any type of prosthesis should not ride Power Tower, Raptor, Skyscraper, Skyhawk, Wave Swinger or Wicked Twister unless they can ensure the device is properly secured and will remain in place during the ride.

If there is any concern of the prosthesis becoming dislodged during the ride, guests should contact the Park Operations Office for assistance.

The manufacturer of Maverick and Top Thrill Dragster require documentation from the manufacturer of the prosthetic device guaranteeing that the prosthetic device has been designed to remain in place on a high speed roller coaster ride exceeding a maximum speed of 120 MPH (70 MPH Maverick) with maximum G forces from -1.5 G's to 5 Gs with sufficient safety factor for single point failure. Questions? Please call 419-627-2301 prior to your visit.

And from Six Flags website FAQ's

Are there restrictions for guests with prosthetic devices?

There are restrictions on certain rides, depending on the prosthetic device. Please visit Guest Relations to pick up our ADA Guide.

Breast prosthses?
Wig/hair prostheses?
Eye/ear/cosmetic prostheses?....Just asking....

How to piggyback?
Pitch it to your local news media.
You're just going to have to call me. 860-967-4184.

If You Missed My Audio Conference, You Missed A Lot!
Craig DeCamp, CO, BOCPO of Mobile Limb and Brace had this to say...

"Hey Elizabeth,

Super presentation, I can't even imagine the WOW factor if you had picts?!?!

I got more out of it than I thought I would and you gave me more focus for my efforts.

I got my blog up last week and it was as easy as you said. It is almost fun putting it together and once it is up and running it doesn't take long to update."

Editor's (That's me!) Note:
Craig attended my "Blogging for Dummies" presentation at the MWCAAOP meeting in Joliet, IL.

He took notes and set up the Mobile Limb and Brace Blog.

Well done Craig!
