Robert Schulman graduated from the University of Buffalo in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. Working as a technician in the Prosthetics industry for a few years prepped him for entering the Newington Certificate Program for Prosthetics. Robert has been a Certified Prosthetist since 1997, and has been practicing at Allied Orthopedics in NY his entire career.
Robert's passion for working with the limb loss community goes further than his day job. He is currently a board member for Living Water Children's Fund, a non profit organization. He visits Haiti annually, providing impoverished children with limb loss prostheses. His work internationally is well recognized and supported.
In the summer of 2012, Robert volunteered at the Maryland location of Camp No Limits. Since his first camp, Robert travels every year to most of the locations throughout the year to help run and facilitate this amazing program for children with limb loss and their families. He also is currently sitting as a Board member for Camp No Limits, ensuring many children with limb loss have the opportunity to be a part of this program. Robert's support for the limb loss community became more evident in 2013, when he created the Out on a Limb Walk. This first event raised approximately $15,000 for 3 amputee organizations. The following few years, the money raised from the event went towards supporting Camp No Limits. The event became the Out on a Limb Beach Benefit, being held at the Mushrooms at Lido. Every year the event has grown, and Robert created the Out on a Limb Foundation, bringing all of Robert's efforts and passions into one Foundation. Robert's goal is for all children with limb loss both here in the US and around the world to be given the opportunity to walk, run, play, and perform activities of daily living like any other child, regardless of financial burden or situation.
