Total Life Integration

Transhumeral amputee Wendi Parker and son


What does it mean to “live”? In the early weeks after limb loss, our patients say that to live is to be able to do basic things like get dressed, eat or drive a car. Our individualized approach to prosthetic rehabilitation gives people the emotional support, tools and resources they need to begin moving forward. As rehab progresses, CAPPFUL® outcome measures expand the idea of what it means to live. In fact, many people who've experienced traumatic injury or illness believe that their survival is an opportunity to live in more meaningful ways.

One of the first questions we’re asked by new patients is “Will I be able to go back to work?”  Our goal is to do everything we can to make that happen. We educate new patients about the prosthetic options that are available and help them decide which are most appropriate for their situation. Individualized attention from an upper limb prosthetic therapist is integrated through all phases of prosthetic rehabilitation. In some cases, our therapists will even conduct on-the-job training to help a patient use his or her prosthesis as efficiently and effectively as possible in the work place.


A limb difference shouldn’t stop you from doing the activities you love. We create custom prosthetic solutions for a wide range of recreational activities that redefine what is possible for an amputee.
Our activity-specific devices enable amputees to ride a bike, go rock climbing, hit a softball, or lift weights. The only limit to what’s possible is the imagination.
