About Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez was born with a birth defect called fibular hemimelia. At ten months old, his mother faced the tough decision to amputate his leg. She was unsure if she was making the right decision for her son, but Robert is thankful she did. Due to his amputation and wearing a prosthetic, he is proud to show others that he, and all amputees, are capable of doing the same things as any other able-bodied individual.

Today, Robert is a father, a husband, a motivational speaker, and an athlete. He competes on the Para-Elite Triathlon Team for Team USA and Team USA for amputee soccer. The trials and tribulations Robert has had to mentally and physically overcome as a young man has taught him to always push through no matter the circumstances. Through his experiences, he has learned that sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem, and success is on the other side if we continue to work hard.

ALPS makes my life better by being able to be comfortable every day in my leg. I have been wearing ALPS products for over 12 years. My liner gives me that extra cushion so that no matter what sport I’m competing in that, I feel safe, that I’m confrontable, and at the end of the day, when I take my leg off, I know that I don’t have bumps or bruises, that my leg is in a safe space all day. Sometimes I wear my leg about 18 hours a day, so between the liner and the sleeve, keeping my leg on and getting some good suspension has made my life easier to play with my kids, be active, and drive my car as an amputee. It has allowed me to feel like I’m a regular person - like my prosthesis is a part of me.
