Orthotics & Prosthetics: U-CAN
University of Michigan Community Amputee Network

We are a non-profit Amputee Coalition group member. We meet the first Tuesday of each month, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center (UMOPC), 2850 South Industrial Hwy, Suite 400, Ann Arbor, MI. 48104.

Our goal is to help amputees, people with limb loss or limb difference, and their families cope with the initial shock of loss by helping them regain control of their life through education, compassion, and encouragement.  Amputees have the ability to do virtually anything they want to do and we do!

Our meetings usually have a presentation for the first hour.  After the presentation we share information and have time for questions, answers and discussion.  An important part of the group is time for socializing and physical activities that exercise the mind as well as the body.  Please join us as we all learn together.   Light refreshments are served.

U-CAN:

We hope to help people look beyond the loss and look forward to tomorrow.  Seeing someone in a similar situation can help a person realize they are not alone and that…There is Life after Amputation!
