Lou Figueroa is a bilateral amputee, Right below the knee & Left above the knee. Lou is a client and friend of O’Connor Orthopedic as well as amputee superstar. Not only does he do motivational speaking but is also patient advocate for amputees all over the world. It is always a pleasure when he stops by with new toys.
Lou Recently came in to allow us to work with two new Ossur Proprio feet with vacuum. As you can see they are extremely fluid and walk very nice. We are extremely impressed with the new Proprio.
O’Connor Orthopedic is proud to announce that we are the first orthotics and prosthetics clinic in Southern California to incorporate 3d printing and scanning into our everyday practice. Patients will see a reduction in the time it takes them to get their device and also a vast increase in the comfort due to the precision fit we can now offer.
With the precision of our new in-house 3d scanner and software, we have the ability to capture the patient’s residual limb with extreme precision. With this virtual model, we can then modify it and print multiple check sockets for our patient’s to try.
This entire process is extremely clean and quick. Patient’s can expect check sockets to be done within hours instead of weeks or days and finished prosthesies in a matter of days. This unbelievable technology is going to revolutionize our industry and we are proud to be the first office in Southern California to offer this to our patients.
Patients are welcome to call or email to talk about specifics. We then always recommend that you come into our office for a free initial evaluation where we can fully evaluate you and speak about options.
Using advanced 3D scanning and printing technology combined with hand molding and modifying skills we are able to deliver high-quality goods that fit great. We work extremely hard to deliver comfortable fitting prosthetic devices.
