News and events
Legs Matter is a campaign to highlight the importance of leg and foot health. From 3rd to 7th June 2019, Legs Matter Week will be explaining how leg and foot problems are one of the biggest health challenges of our time.
Next month from 11th to 17th June, Diabetes Week is taking place to fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm. Diabetes is a common long-term health problem in the UK, affecting around 3.7 million people in the UK alone and the number of people diagnosed with it is rising rapidly. People living with a diagnosis of the condition has more than doubled in the last 20 years and it is estimated that up to 549,000 people have the condition but have yet to be diagnosed.
We’re a busy bunch here at LimbO! Last month saw us travel around the country attending talks at universities, skills days about wound care, a conference on children’s orthopaedics and days held by the Journal of Community Nursing in both Birmingham and Torquay.
Here at LimbO, we understand that undertaking everyday tasks with a PICC line can become more difficult and tiring. As well as all your medical appointments and remembering any medication, a PICC line can seem like another challenge to overcome. That’s why at LimbO we’re committed to making your life easier and our waterproof protectors are an easy addition that will save you time and effort, as well as worry!
