DO YOU PROVIDE DIABETIC FOOTWEAR?
Yes! To ensure compliance and payment from your insurance provider, it is best to first make an appointment with the physician who treats your diabetes to obtain a prescription for footwear, then call us to fax their office the paperwork required. We are here to help if you have questions.
Yes we do. We have a variety of options available, ranging from custom to those pre-sized based on measurement. Most insurances will not provide coverage for compression socks, with the exception of the VA when medically appropriate. For all others, these are self-pay items. A prescription is helpful, but not necessary. We are now stocking compression socks in our office through Lunatik Athletiks.

How is an orthosis made?
An orthosis is either prefabricated or custom fabricated, depending on each individual’s specific situation. The fabrication process begins with taking a mold and/or measurements of the affected body part. A device is then chosen or specifically created for your body and needs.
HOw is a prosthetic made? how long will THE PROCESS take?
A prosthesis is custom made for each patient. The fabrication process begins with a casting of your residual limb. A prosthetic socket or device is then created and attached to a prosthetic foot or knee with hardware. The socket is fabricated by hand, and then parts are assembled and aligned by hand.
If you are a new amputee, the prosthetic process will begin once you are given the ‘okay’ by your physician (usually when sutures/staples are removed). The process to fabricate and obtain a prosthetic leg usually involves 3 appointments: casting, fitting (test version is able to be tried), and delivery (in which you are able to take home). There are approximately 1-2 weeks between each appointment. Please keep in mind that every patient is unique, as is the speed that each human body heals. Different situations may sometimes arise; however, we understand that getting you moving again is of utmost importance.
Caring for your Device
What should I do if the fit of my prosthetic/orthotic changes? Please contact your practitioner promptly.
What should I do if my prosthesis/orthosis breaks? Discontinue use and contact your practitioner immediately.
Can I fix or adjust a prosthetic/orthotic by myself? No, this could lead to bodily injury or harm and/or permanent damage to your device. (As well as void your warranty.)
Can I get my hard plastic orthosis wet? Yes. However it should be cleaned and dried thoroughly before you reapply it. It is comes in contact with salt water, be sure to rinse it thoroughly with fresh water. Be aware that the cushioning inside some braces my mildew if not properly dried.
Can I get my prosthesis wet? Not usually. Most prostheses are not water compatible, unless they have been specifically designed for water activity.
