Wyzhir Johnson to appear on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

i-limb wearer, Wyzhir Johnson, is set to star on popular television program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, on Friday, December 9th 8/7c on ABC-TV.

Wyzhir lost his left hand while working on a home improvement project and was fitted with his i-limb by Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics. Though this loss posed many challenges for the 16 year old, he adjusted in part by focusing on ways to help others, particularly those with missing limbs. Because Wyzhir understands how important it is for amputees to have access to prosthetic devices, he created Wyzhir's Dream Fund, a charity that provides funding for artificial limbs to people who need them.

When the producers of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" learned of Wyzhir's story, they decided to build a home that is both beautiful and more functional for him and his family.

Additionally, featuring Wyzhir and his new hand raises awareness of the availability and benefits of high-technology prosthetic and orthotic devices, as well as the importance of tailoring artificial limbs to meet patients' needs regarding both fit and function.

We congratulate Wyzhir and his family on their new home and look forward to watching the episode!
