Prosthetics

We provide prosthetics for all levels of amputations starting with upper extremity, such as Forequater, Shoulder Disarticulation, Transhumeral (Above Elbow), Elbow Disarticulation, Transradial (Below Elbow), Wrist Disarticulation, Partial Hand and Fingers. Upper Extremity Prosthetics usually consist of passive, manual controlled or myoelectric components depending on the patients abilities and needs. A comprehensive plan takes into consideration all types of appropriate componentry.

Lower Extremity Prosthetics include Hemipelvectomy, Hip Disarticulation, Transfemoral (Above Knee), Knee Disarticulation, Transtibial (Below Knee), Symes, Hindfoot, Chopart, Transmetetarsal and Toes. Generally a Lower Extremity Prosthesis is made up of four major components; socket, pylon, foot, and suspension. The most important of these is the socket. Without a comfortable socket that can be worn all day and proper alignment to accommodate various activities, then the prosthesis is not functional…no matter what state-of-the art knee or foot is underneath. It is our upmost importance to provide a prosthesis you can wear as long as needed without the urge to get home and take it off. We want you to get out of bed without the worries of wearing an ill-fitting or heavy prosthesis before your day even starts. We take pride in finding the best solution for you!

During the fitting process, our clinicians listen closely and provide comprehensive one-on-one care. This allows us to incorporate the most appropriate ultra-light materials, components, and design. Ultimately this leads to the highest function possible.
