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 (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.
