There is no doubt we live in a region deeply connected with the outdoors. There is no city like Asheville, with an elevation higher than any other urban area on the East Coast.
We are surrounded by the tallest mountains in the Appalachians, with many peaks rising up over a mile. There are hundreds of thousands of acres of national forest to explore in those mountains and adjacent valleys.
Rivers and creeks flow swiftly through the valleys, inviting anglers and thrill sealers to fish or float down their waters. Zipline canopy tours invite visitors to literally fly through the forests at high speed to gain a new perspective on the surrounding beauty.
If you use a prosthetic device, this area can be challenging. The allure of exploring every square inch of the mountains can make anyone want to stretch their abilities to the limits.
Artificial limb technology has come a long way in a relatively short time. It only continues to improve today. Is it time for a new prosthetic?
