Our website for patients and caregivers provides more info about using our products:
Prosthetics - Lead an active life ⧉ - If you’re a new amputee (or a friend or family member), you have many questions. What happens next? What can I expect? Can I resume activities I used to enjoy? Many of those questions are best answered by your prosthetist and the rest of your health care team as they create your treatment plan.
Orthotics - Taking the informed step ⧉ - The science of orthotics is broad, encompassing everything from simple braces for your wrist through complex, custom-designed products that can help people walk farther and with more stability and flexibility. The latest advances are pushing the boundaries for people who have been limited to wheelchairs or rigid braces. Understanding a bit more about the mechanics of gait, or how we walk, can make it easier to compare various choices and have a meaningful conversation with your clinician.
