Robert Schulman, C.P. is a Certified Prosthetist who founded the Limb Kind Foundation in 2019 and serves as the organization’s Executive Director.
Robert, a native Long Islander, graduated from SUNY University of Buffalo in June 1994 with a B.A. degree in Sociology. It was after graduation that Robert discovered the field of Prosthetics, and what would turn out to be his life’s passion. He started out as a Prosthetic Technician at Allied Orthopedics in Brooklyn, NY, learning how to build and fabricate prosthetic limbs. Robert then went to prosthetic school at the Newington Certificate Program in Connecticut to accomplish his career goals in becoming a Prosthetist. After graduating Newington Certificate Program in 1997, Robert returned to Allied Orthopedics, and became a Certified Prosthetist. Robert has helped thousands of men, women, and children with limb loss, regain their independence after providing them with prosthetic limbs.
Altruism was not only a career choice for Robert, but rather a way of life. Volunteering for many organizations that support the physically challenged population such as the Challened Athlees Foundation and the Living Water Childrens Fund were a major part of Robert's life. In 2013, Robert discovered Camp No Limits, a camp program for children with limb loss and their families around the country. This is where Robert's desire to support children with limb loss truly began. Robert still travels around the country to many of camps locations helping children with limb loss reach their maximum potential.
Robert has visited Haiti after the earthquake of 2010 to make children prostheses many times under the auspices of Living Water Childrens Fund. The desire to make an even bigger impact on the lives of children with limb loss was evident and many people wanted to assist Robert in his mission. So the newly renamed non-profit organization was formed, the Limb Kind Foundaton. In 2019, the Limb Kind Foundation was formed and the team was able to visit both Haiti and the Philippines, making many children prostheses. Jopin Robert and the rest of the Limb Kind family spread kindness and make a difference in many children's lives around the world.
