Upper Limb Prosthetics
Over the past decade, the US Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration has spent over $70 million developing forward-thinking and advances in upper limb prosthetic technologies. While the vast majority of these developments have not yet come to market for the average consumer, there are small pieces of these new technologies that have indeed become available for amputees to begin to utilize. While some of these new innovations in socket design, multi-articulating prosthetic hands, and powered partial hand prosthetic solutions are helping US servicemen and women, these same technologies are already becoming commonplace by clinicians who specialize in upper limb prosthetic care throughout the US.
During this time, Prosthetic & Orthotic Associates has invested a great deal of time and effort expanding its expertise in these latest upper limb prosthetic innovations. Successfully providing upper limb prosthetics requires a highly specialized skill set and an ongoing desire to keep up with this rapidly changing niche in the O&P profession. In order to continue to grow the team required for this unique area of patient care, the management team at Prosthetic & Orthotic Associates decided in 2012 to expand their service offerings by introducing Handspring.
