When you choose a healthcare professional, you want someone:
Our goal is to provide you with the best possible prosthetic and orthotic care. Your continued health and recovery are our top priorities.
During your initial examination, one of our practitioners will evaluate your condition, and recommend the prosthesis or orthosis you need.
You will be asked questions about:
A lower extremity patient will undergo a gait analysis and alignment is checked and measured; an upper extremity patient will be tested for upper body strength and manual dexterity. The most factual and thorough answers to the practitioner's questions will help determine which device will work best for you.
After the initial evaluation, you will be measured and your limb or residual limb casted to make a plaster impression. Once it has dried, it will be gently removed, and the customization of your orthosis or prosthesis begins.
Your next appointment will be for the initial fitting. At this time, the practitioner will observe your use of the device and may make some adjustments to it. Many patients can leave with their device after the first fitting, but some appliances are more complicated and require more time to fine-tune. Then, you will have to return for additional fittings and adjustments to ensure the best possible outcome.
After the final fitting, you may require further visits as needed for comfort and mobility. Your prosthesis and orthosis may need to be adjusted if there are changes in your health, activity level, or in your residual limb, and should be checked periodically to maintain an optimal fit.
