In an effort to reach a wide range of athletes with disabilities, from recreational to those that perform at elite levels, The Liner Wand has formed a partnership with the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) to offer a discount on the purchase of an initial kit from The Liner Wand to CAF members.

Founded in 1994, CAF has been committed to creating opportunities so those with physical challenges can live full, healthy, and active lives. As most insurance companies do not cover adaptive sports equipment and many individuals with physical challenges are unable to afford it, CAF supports people who want to get involved in sports. In addition to supporting those with limb loss and differences, CAF also assists individuals with visual impairment, spinal cord injuries, and cerebral palsy, as well as cancer survivors and military and first responders. Services include providing grants and mentoring, along with camps and clinics to those looking to participate in sports activities.

As we have discussed in other blogs, being able to provide The Liner Wand to amputee athletes is an important component of what we do, as it is imperative for these individuals to carry out good hygiene practices to keep the skin on the residual limb healthy and free from irritations. Equally important is liner care, as it can absorb perspiration and harbor bacteria by-product, causing skin problems, buildup, and odor. Using The Liner Wand as directed will assist amputees to achieve the proper level of hygienic care.

With that in mind, CAF members who use a special code from The Liner Wand will receive a 25% discount off the purchase of their first kit. In addition, a portion of the sales generated will be contributed to support CAF programs.
