At POA, we believe every child with an amputation or orthopedic condition deserves to live a full life. We recognize that kids are not small adults and their needs and activities are unique. With that in mind, we approach their care differently.
Having an in-house laboratory allows us to design and fabricate specialized devices for the best possible outcome for every child.
Our team is passionate about seeing toddlers walk and run, teenagers play sports, and young adults thrive in every area of life.
We use the latest technology to design prostheses that will give our young patients maximum functionality, comfort, and control. We plan ahead for your child’s growth to allow for longer term use of their device. Every child is casted by hand to achieve an exact mold of their limb resulting in a precise fit.
A well fitted prosthesis is only as good as how well it is customized to your child’s walking pattern. For this reason, a separate appointment is specifically scheduled to let your child take a trial walk in the prosthesis before it is finalized. This assures that your child will receive a finished prosthesis that is both comfortable and efficient.
Missing a part of your arm may seem quite limiting, but it doesn’t have to be. Using modern technology, POA provides arm prostheses that can greatly enhance your child’s functional abilities. This may be in the form of a cable operated prosthesis or a myoelectrically controlled prosthesis. Every child is casted by hand to achieve an exact mold of their limb resulting in a precise fit. While nothing can take the place of the human hand, a prosthesis can broaden the range of capabilities for your child.
