Upper Limb Specialties
For nearly a century, our passion for perfecting each one of our prosthetic designs has been inspired by natural movement and human achievement.
Real choices for real life: Gentle and rugged. Light activity and heavy duty. Subtle and bold. For our hands, “everyday activities” can be just about anything. For people with an upper limb difference, that means the “right hand” is all about the right balance: the combination of strength, precision,
Lower Limb Specialties
For nearly a century, Carolina Orthotics & Prosthetics has focused on helping people maintain or regain their freedom of movement. For above knee amputees, that sense of freedom comes from confidence in every step. And confidence begins with trust in the knee.
At Carolina Orthotics & Prosthetics, we know that the right foot makes everything else possible. The most sophisticated knee technology needs the right foot to perform to its best. The most advanced hip prosthesis depends on a foot to deliver its full potential.
There is nothing more important that the comfort of your socket. Whether it’s the liner protecting your skin, or the accessories that enable you to live life on your terms, Carolina Orthotics & Prosthetics has options that allow you to choose what works best for you.
Get Fitted for a Prosthesis
Everyone has a different anatomy, but also a different lifestyle and different wishes. A prosthesis is therefore tailor-made especially for you. The measurement is always done in consultation with you, your rehabilitation doctor, your orthopedic advisor and prosthetist. This way you can be sure that you get the prosthesis that suits you best.
A prosthesis as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services as “…devices that replace all or part of an internal body organ or replace all or part of the function of a permanently inoperative or malfunctioning internal body organ.” Prosthetics include limbs, eyes, teeth, and facial bones. It is important to note that Carolina Orthotics & Prosthetics only does prostheses for limbs. There are two types of prostheses, endoskeletal and exoskeletal. Endoskeletal means that the prosthesis is supported by an internal pylon. Exoskeletal means the prosthesis is supported by an external frame.
Your prosthetist is the person in charge of your prosthetic care. Carolina Orthotics & Prosthetics are experienced and have the skills and knowledge necessary to provide the best prosthesis for you.
