Once you receive your prosthesis, hopefully you are well on your way to lifelong mobility. But in order to maintain or increase that mobility, prosthetic follow-up appointments are necessary to stay on that path.

Initially when you receive your first prosthetic device, your prosthetist should have explained to you that your limb will change rapidly, and in order to maintain that intimate fit with your prosthetic device, follow up appointments should be made regularly within the first 6-12 months. This is necessary until your limb shape and size starts to settle and maintain a consistent volume.

Lifelong Follow-Up Care
It is important to allow your limb to adapt to your prosthetic device. Once that has occurred, the need for follow-up care is less frequent, but still valuable and necessary to maintaining and increasing your mobility.

Over time, as you wear prosthesis, you may find the need to have minor adjustments done, a new socket made, or simply the need for newer more advanced type of prosthetic technology.

Some of the reasons a good lifelong follow-up program is so critical to an amputees care and success, are as follows:

Prosthetic Fit  - New amputees will change shape rapidly. Seasoned amputees can change due to a variety of reasons, including weight fluctuations, health, medication, activity, age, and more.

Weight Fluctuations - If you have increased or decreased your overall weight, that will affect the size and shape of your limb, thus your prosthetic fit.

A Change in Activity  - If, for instance, you have increased your activity, this can have an effect on prosthetic fit or how your prosthesis utilized. You may benefit from different technology that is more suitable to your activity change.

Prosthetic/Component Wear  - Like most things, prosthetic componentry can wear from prolonged use. It’s important to have your prosthetic device checked regularly for any signs of wear or deterioration.

A Change in Lifestyle  - Increased or decreased activity, changes in where you live (your house or the local traverse), or specific activities you now enjoy can be affected by your prosthetic choices.

Advanced Technology  - Technology is ever advancing, and you may benefit from that new improved technology.

Lifelong follow-up programs are necessary for amputees to get the most out of your prosthetic device. It is an opportunity for you to be able to communicate with your prosthetist, to share any issue that you may be having, or to simply discuss your life and any changes to it and how your prosthetic device plays a role in your daily living.

Let us help you get back to living your life to the fullest.

To meet with a Fourroux Prosthetist for a FREE Consultation at any one of our locations, or to create a customized follow-up program for you, call 888-810-6220.

The decision to choose a prosthetic facility, whether it is your first endeavor or if you find yourself a seasoned amputee looking for a change, is not one to take lightly. Prosthetic care is something that will be needed throughout your lifetime, and utilizing the ability to have a free consultation can help put your nerves at ease and help choose which prosthetic facility is right for you. Not all prosthetic facilities are alike, and they DO NOT all provide the same level of care.

 
 

Introductions

Amputee Consultation at Fourroux Prosthetics

When I go somewhere, I want to look as pretty and normal as anybody.says Fern, a below-knee amputee. “It really seemed like it was the first time that anyone seemed to listen or hear me.

 Your consultion should begin with introductions of yourself, and your family or support individuals to those within the prosthetic facility. In order to get the appropriate care, one needs to build a repore with those who will be providing the service. That repore allows you to get any and all your questions asked and answered, but also allows the prosthetic professionals the ability to provide a long term care plan that helps meet the your immediate needs AND your long term goals.

 
Amputees need to feel comfortable with those who are helping them. They need to understand the process of how the care will be administered, and what is expected of all parties to fullfill that longterm care plan.
 
Take note of the differences in the facilities you visit. The cleanliness of the office. The friendliness of the staff. The technology that is utilized. The timelines of the service being delivered. And maybe most importantly take note in the experiences from other amputees whom have utilized the facilities service.
 
 

Meet Other Patients

Prosthetic Socket Design at Fourroux Prosthetics

Are you being introduced to other amputees during the consultation? Does the facility seem willing to let you talk with other amputees?  Do they have amputee references? Ask to meet other amputees to get a true sense of the level of care that you will receive.
 
It is a lot to take in, especially if you are new to prosthetic care.  But the long term value of those first consulation meetings can be immeasurable in the long run.  Take advantage of it!
 
If you would like to learn more about Fourroux Prosthetics call 888-810-6220, or schedule a FREE Consultation at any one of our locations.  Meet the Fourroux staff, meet other patients and see our world class care facilities in action.
 
See for yourself the Fourroux Difference!  We would be happy to show you around.
 

brandon rolandOne of our own, Mr. Brandon Rowland was honored as an inductee to the Jackson -Madison County Sports Hall of Fame in Tennessee at the Carl Perkins Civic Center on April 18, 2019.

Brandon Rowland is recognized for his outstanding athletic and personal achievements, despite immense adversity he has experienced since childhood. Just being selected as a candidate for Sports Hall of Fame is quite an accomplishment in itself, given the list of candidates that the committee must decipher through over the course of a year.

Brandon's determination and success in overcoming a disability along with his superior athletic performance resulted in back-to-back National Wheelchair Basketball Association championships, and three national titles in his division at the National Amputee Golf Association tournament.

Brandon is a winner in every sense of the word as he continues to educate and assist other amputees/patients in living life to the fullest!

An amazing honor for an amazing guy that we are blessed to have on our team.

Congratulations Brandon!!!!!
