Amber Loves Sports!
Amber Peterson was born without her right hand, but watching her play sports today, you probably wouldn’t even notice. Beginning around age 5, with the help of custom, activity-specific prostheses, Amber was able to use her right “hand” to play the violin, swing the bat for Tee-Ball, swim with both hands and play with her friends. Currently, her active lifestyle includes bicycling, basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer and more. Her parents used to wonder: Will Amber be able to do the things other kids do? Now they’re busy trying to keep up with her schedule for practices, games and having fun. It’s a pretty great life!

The unique design created by Rob Dodson, CPO, FAAOP, and Julian Wells, CPO, FAAOP, mimics the function of an elbow, allowing Okun to lift weights more effectively and achieve symmetrical muscle development.
