Sports

Many of our patients enjoy engaging in various sport activities. These can range from fishing, golf, tennis, basketball, running, and all the way to marathon participants. No matter what activity you might like to be involved in, we can design a device that will help meet your needs. Sport activities require we look at many aspects of your prosthesis. Special socket designs and modifications may be required to absorb the increased forces and movement created by your activity.
You may require special suspension methods to ensure that you have minimal movement in the socket to reduce shear forces caused by higher activity. Our practitioners will work with you to design your prosthesis to help you achieve your athletic goals no matter how minimal or extreme. This will include selection of the most appropriate knee, ankle, feet, and other components that will maximize your function. Our goal is to not only get you walking once again but back to your maximum potential!
