Following an upper or lower extremity amputation, surgeons will order prosthetic supplies that aid in the healing process. About one week post amputation, PIPO fits prosthetic shrinkers (sock shaped graduated compression garments) that reduce swelling in the residual limb and improve circulation. When the amputation is below the knee, we also create a custom semi rigid removable dressing (SRRD), made from a plaster impression of the limb. This padded plastic dressing is worn during waking hours to protect the amputation site.
Our Licensed Practitioners are trained in evaluating and fitting cutting edge prosthetic technology, including iLimb, C-leg, myoelectric arms and hands, microprocessor-controlled prostheses, and advanced feet and knee components.
As an ABC Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist or Pedorthist, our Practitioners are sensitive to the rapid advancements in our field. They, along with our O and P Technicians, keep current in their education by attending professional association meetings and courses.
