My name is Christoffer Lindhe and I am the founder of Lindhe Xtend. But I am also a triple amputee and from time to time, I report from my life as an amputee. The aim of the video blog is to act as an inspiration for others, whether amputees or not, who are curious about how I have resolved practical problems, thoughts I have, both as an amputee and a private individual, but also as an Entrepreneur and a businessman. I also try and address common questions that I often receives when holding lectures or meetings and I try to answer them as well as I can.
If you have a question or a suggestion for a subject, please contact us!
