Altoona Ambucs presents Amtryke to local girl

At a recent meeting of the Altoona Chapter of Ambucs, Dr. Ed Fara-baugh showed members and guests how Amtrykes are custom-built for each individual child.

Dr. Farabaugh has been building Amtrykes, assistive devices for people with mobility issues, for more than 20 years and hopes to pass along his knowledge to fellow chapter members. Also at that luncheon, the Altoona chapter provided Jenna Dren-

ning with an Amtryke and helmet.

The Altoona Chapter of Ambucs is a national nonprofit service organization consisting of a diverse group of men and women who are dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.

The Altoona Chapter of Ambucs partnered with local therapists to provide personalized Amtrykes to children in and around the Blair County area who experience mobility issues.
