For whatever your needs may be, we offer complete solutions.

In order to maximize your mobility and function, our experienced and skilled team of Certified Prosthetists and Prosthetic Technicians will design and fabricate a custom prosthesis unique to your needs.

Upper Extremity Prosthetics

We offer prosthetic solutions for all levels of upper extremity amputations including fingers, partial hands, wrist, elbow, and shoulder disarticulations as well as above and below elbow amputations. Prosthesis options include cosmetic devices, passive devices for specific activities/sports, conventional body-powered devices and myoelectric powered devices.

Lower Extremity Prosthetics

We can fit amputees who are missing toes, have had an amputation below or above the knee, have undergone a Van Ness rotationplasty procedure or who have experienced a hip or pelvis amputation. Using a prosthesis has the potential to improve your quality of life, safety, and activity level. Please schedule an appointment with us if you are unsure of whether you are a prosthetic candidate. Prosthetics can be made for activity-specific tasks or for everyday use. Since every patient is unique, we guarantee that all of our prosthetic work is custom designed for each patient.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

Your Arrival

It’s a good idea to come 10-15 minutes before your first appointment to carefully fill out your health history form. Want to save time? Print and complete the form before you arrive.

 

 

 

 

 

Meeting your Prosthetist

Please understand that your prosthetist will need to examine the amputation area. Bring shorts or dress appropriately so that we are able to fully assess your limb and functional level. Your first visit may include taking a cast of your residual limb. If you already have a prosthesis, the first appointment may include a functional assessment and discussion regarding goals and expectations of your prosthesis.

Prosthetic intervention is initiated by taking a cast of the residual limb, which is then modified by the prosthetist and followed by the fabrication of a ‘prosthetic socket’. This socket is then fit to the patient, assessed for fit and function and aligned for optimal performance.

Funding/Costs

The Alberta Aids to Daily Living program will provide funding towards your every-day prosthesis. There are some limitations to this program that the prosthetist and billing staff will kindly go over and clarify any concerns that you may have. If you have extended benefits or other financial resources, you may be eligible for a secondary prosthesis. If you are curious about other prosthetic devices, please discuss this with your prosthetist.

Giving you back your freedom and independence.
