In this paper we present some initial ideas and reflections regarding the use of social networks as a mean to facilitate amputees using prostheses in their daily lives. We therefore combine perspectives from Persuasive Technology with the principles used to motivate patients with prosthesis to complete their rehabilitation. These prosthesis carriers (PCs) experience several challenges in their everyday life; such as exclusion from a group; why the prosthesis inadequacy demotivates the PCs approach to social interaction with others. The idea is to design a persuasive technology that supports; helps and motivates these PCs to deal and comprehend with; not only their psychological issues and worries; but also some of the more fatal consequences there are if they stop using their prosthesis. We thereby hope that the PCs will support; reward and motivate each other through interaction; recognition and self-monitoring.
