Seek help and support actively
Get the necessary help and support
Make sure that you receive regular follow-up by a doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, orthopedic engineer, etc.
You need both professional help and support from friends and family. For many, however, contact with people who have the same experiences as themselves is one of the most important. Through Momentum you can meet people with experience who offer conversations, training, exercise, activities and social community.

Read more about Momentum
Momentum has regional teams throughout Norway. Click on your local county team in the top menu on this page to get more information about Momentum’s regional team. There you will find contact information and information about local activities.
You are free to contact the orthopedic workshop for checks and adjustments, also outside agreed appointments.
Contact an orthopedic engineer if you get sores or blisters, if you need adjustments because the prosthesis does not fit or if you think there is a defect in the prosthesis. If you experience temperature rises, sores, bad smells, increasing pain or discomfort, it may be a sign that something needs to be treated. It is better to get control from a doctor, physiotherapist or orthopedic engineer once too much, than once too little.
Get good tips and advice from peers
Momentum has local contact persons / peers – users and relatives – throughout the country. One of us is happy to visit you at a hospital, rehabilitation institution, at home or wherever appropriate.
The peers are experienced prosthesis users and relatives who on a voluntary basis exist for others in the same situation.
