Lightweight Prosthetics

We embrace the recent advances in technology to provide the most comfortable and lightweight prosthesis possible.

carbon fiber


There are significant advantages to using carbon fiber in prosthetics and orthotics, such as reduced weight of the device, more durability, greater flexibility and increased strength. This means the device is sometimes half the weight and twice as strong, giving our patients the advantage of greater function with less fatigue.



Titanium is considered the most biocompatible metal due to its resistance to corrosion from bodily fluids, bio-inertness, high fatigue limit, light weight and structural strength. Devices fabricated with titanium last longer providing the strength of steel with only 45% of the weight.



Computer Aided Design or CAD is like a digital plaster room for Quest Orthotics and Prosthetics. With CAD we can build custom fitted devices in half the time of traditional methods and with greater initial accuracy, meaning more comfort for our patients. Our system includes 3D scanners, computer-aided shape modification software, automated carvers, and 3D printer integration.

Lower Extremity

Lower extremity (foot, leg and hip disarticulation) amputations also vary from vascular to trauma, age of patient, mobility needs etc. Every patient is unique and is treated as such. There is no one-size-fits-all at Quest Orthotics and Prosthetics. Each patient is assessed by their Prosthetist to develop a customized program that is consistent with their individual goals.

Advancements in technology and materials with lower extremity prosthetic components has improved so much over the last several years, including the development of microprocessor controlled knees and feet. These advancements have enhanced the functional capabilities of the lower extremity patient. Fit and comfort are critical to the success of a lower extremity device and at Quest Orthotics & Prosthetics we pride ourselves on how well our patients adapt to life with a prosthetic.

Upper Extremity

Upper extremity (including fingers, partial hand, wrist disarticulation, below-elbow, elbow disarticulation, above-elbow, and shoulder and forequarter arm) amputations range in type from vascular to trauma, young to old, sports enthusiasts to basic ambulation. Every patient has his or her own concept of success, so each patient is assessed individually by our staff to create a customized rehabilitation program that is consistent with their goals.

Recent advancements in technology with upper extremity prosthetics have been amazing. The development of microprocessor-controlled hands and elbows, with enhanced functional capabilities give new freedom and mobility to the upper extremity patient. These enhancements however, are only possible with a properly fitted device. Here at Quest Orthotics and Prosthetics, our upper extremity specialists will conduct a thorough evaluation of the residual limb, fully consider the patient’s goals and objectives, and together with the patient, determine what system best fits his/her needs.
