We are here to literally walk with you to help you achieve your goals.

We strive to provide the highest standard of prosthetic care, personalized for you. Whether you’re coming to Achilles as a new amputee or need a replacement limb, we’re here to answer your questions and provide complete prosthetic services. Using state-of-the-art technology, blended with the newest modern methods of limb care, we can provide customized solutions you deserve.

At Achilles, we believe in a collaborative approach to treatment. Our patient care strategies have two component parts: (1) you, the patient, teach us about your expectations and goals; (2) we educate you about prosthetic-related issues and services.

Upon your initial evaluation visit, we will perform a detailed interview so that we can design a prosthesis that meets your individual needs and goals. We will explain why we think a particular component or socket design will benefit you. We always encourage you to ask questions and give input about your prosthetic limb design, fit and alignment. We will provide patient education to assist you with home-care for your prosthesis in your daily life.

When we deliver a prosthetic limb to you, our primary focus is achieving the proper fit. The most technical componentry is of little use to you if you cannot wear the prosthesis comfortably. We understand that your success depends on your ability to use your prosthesis comfortably throughout the day.

A certified prosthetist personally designs your prosthesis and oversees all aspects of its fabrication and construction. Your prosthetist is also personally involved in static fitting, dynamic fitting, and alignment to provide the optimum fit and function of your prosthesis.

Our prosthetists are actively involved in continuing education of cutting-edge componentry and are qualified to fit all of the latest microprocessor knees and feet. We also specialize in sports prosthetic design and prostheses for congenital anomalies resulting in amputation.

An above-knee (AK) or transfemoral (TF) prosthesis is custom made for a person who has had an AK or TF amputation. The prosthesis consists of a custom made socket, liner, knee, pylon, and foot. Sometimes the prosthesis may consist of a sleeve or other harness, depending on the suspension system used for that patient.

​A below-knee (BK) prosthesis will typically consist of a custom-made socket, a pylon, and a foot. The prosthesis can be suspended by the use of a one-way valve (suction), pin, magnetic or vacuum depending on the makeup and need of the patient’s limb.

Upper extremity prostheses and other prosthetic devices are made for our patients with a variety of limb losses, from a partial hand amputation to complete or multiple arm limb loss. Our prosthetists and technical staff have extensive experience in providing complete prosthetic care to patients with upper-extremity limb loss. Utilizing our state of the art, in house fabrication lab, we provide the most functional and cosmetic prosthetics for upper-extremity amputees of all levels and ages. Our staff is trained in the latest myoelectric and socket technologies to create the most appropriate solution for all upper-extremity prosthetic needs. We have successfully fit our adult and juvenile clients with the i-Limb hand, Michelangelo, and the Bebionic hand. We utilize cutting edge socket designs to create a comfortable and responsive solution for any type of upper extremity need.
