Steven Mosqueda, born and raised in Riverside, California, has a deep love for basketball. Even after losing his leg due to a car accident at the age of 22, he didn’t give up on his passion for the game. Despite facing this traumatic experience, Steven is still grateful for his ability to move, be independent, and push himself to achieve his goals. Today, Steven is one of the core members of a non-profit basketball team called Amp1 Basketball, which includes four other individuals living with limb loss. The team is devoted to inspiring, educating, and motivating anyone they encounter.
ALPS® sleeves have helped me with basketball because I'm doing movements that are a lot different than what runners or any other athlete is doing. When you start incorporating the movements you're doing on the basketball court, you couldn't do them without the sleeve providing that extra comfort and level of uniform that makes your prosthetic feel like it's a part of your body.
