In addition to the friendly staff and outstanding service that amputee’s receive while visiting Fourroux, one of most shocking benefits in the eyes of our patients is that most receive their new well fitting prosthesis the very same day they have their appointment.

I was blown away at how fast they created my prosthesis.says Peggy, a below-knee amputee. “I went in for my appointment, and left that same day with a new leg that fit fantastic. Now, I can’t imagine having to wait days or weeks for a new prosthesis to be created.

 

CAD Technology Advantage

Prosthetic Socket Design at Fourroux Prosthetics

 

At Fourroux Prosthetics, advanced computer-aided design and manufacturing systems are used to quickly and accurately capture exact replicas of our patients’ limb. Pain free laser scanning captures a 3D computerized image of an amputees’ limb, and an exact model of that patients’ limb is then created using mold carving machines. All this happens in matter of minutes!

Prosthetic technicians then begin creating the prosthetic socket that the amputee will wear. The entire process happens very quickly, and in most instances an amputees’ prosthesis can be completely created and delivered within the same day.
 
One extreme benefit of the entire computer aid design and manufacturing system is its accuracy. Most amputees will tell you that if your prosthesis doesn’t fit well, you will have trouble functioning throughout your day. It can lead to pain, and even sores, to the point where you can’t walk at all.
 
Utilizing this advanced technology eliminates manufacturing inconsistencies which can result in an ill fitting prosthesis. It assists in creating one that exactly matches the shape of your limb, and helps create that intimate fit between you and your prosthesis.
 
One additional benefit is, the less time your prosthetist is spending creating your prosthesis, the more time they will have to get to know you, your lifestyle and your goals. More time is spent together discussing prosthetic usage, and education. Working with you and discussing your long term care plan.
 
At Fourroux Prosthetics we utilize the most advanced methods and technology to create a well fitted, custom prosthesis that is designed with you, your lifestyle and your goals in mind.

banner pages patients dee videoMeet Dee - Fourroux Birmingham Below Knee Amputee

One of Dee’s favorite pastimes is riding horses. She can’t imagine what it would be like not being able to enjoy one of her favorite hobbies.

“I would be miserable if I didn’t have a good-fitting prosthetic. It allows me to live my life and do the things I want to do, which is what everybody wants."  says Dee. “I think initially my goal was just to get back riding ‘cause that’s my happy place.”

Dee understands the value in finding a good prosthetist, and a prosthetic facility that listens, works with you to determine together what you need based on how you live your life.  A prosthetic facility that has the technology and the staff to get you back to living your life.

“You see so many amputees that have a very negative outlook and it’s hard not to. I mean I’ve run into people that are in their wheelchair and I’m like “Why don’t you have a prosthetic?” recalls Dee.  “Because I can’t get one that fits” or “I can’t” you know, it’s hard. I mean it’s like grounding. You ground someone and it’s hard to live your life.  I think they give up; they cannot find a company to do what they need so they give up.

“And when I went to Fourroux, it was totally different." explains Dee.  “I have met people that care, people that take the time to sit down and listen to what you want to do, what your goals are, how active you are or that you want to go chase your grandkids or chase your kids and then try to come up with solutions to get you where you need to be, to do the things that you want to do.”

So, Dee’s message to those who are struggling with their prosthetics…

“There are prosthetics out there available that can do what you need to do.  I don’t think there’s anybody that’s too hard to fit.  I do everything that I did before.  It’s terrifyin’ to think you’re givin’ up everything.  I understand that mentality, but, don’t give up.  Go to Fourroux!”

As one year draws to a close and another is soon to begin, now is an excellent time to take a look at your insurance policies to see if there are any last minute opportunities to take advantage of.  You might save a significant amount of money by taking care of these appointments now, prior to the end of 2018, instead of waiting until the New Year.

In addition to the friendly staff and outstanding service that amputee’s receive while visiting Fourroux, one of most shocking benefits in the eyes of our patients is that most receive their new well fitting prosthesis the very same day they have their appointment.

RickIt is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Rick Lowry.  Rick was our Patient Care Coordinator based out of Nashville, TN. He passed unexpectedly on April 28th, 2018.

Rick was an enthusiastic, energetic person who loved the opportunity to talk about Fourroux.  He adored the personal and professional relationships that he had built over the years, and would go above and beyond to foster strong relationships with anyone that he would come in contact with.

He will be remembered fondly by the many of us who got to know his vibrant, caring personality and bright welcoming smile.

Rick was a loving husband and father of three.  He will be greatly missed by his immediate family, friends, professional colleagues and those of us here at Fourroux.

May you rest in peace, Rick Lowry.
