Fourroux Prosthetics Celebrates 65 Years of Service to Amputees!

Fourroux Prosthetics is excited to be celebrating 65 years of service to amputees & their families!

Fourroux Prosthetics Transportation Service

Fourroux Prosthetics was originally founded in 1955 by George Fourroux and provided orthotics and prosthetics services to local residents in the Huntsville area.  During the last 65 years, our organization has grown significantly as well as narrowed our focus to becoming a nationally recognized prosthetics facility, having served amputees from around the world.  While our corporate office remains in Huntsville, AL, we have expanded their service to Birmingham, Al, Memphis & Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA.

 
Keith Watson, Fourroux’s owner explained:

“This year marks a significant landmark for our organization. 65 years of providing the highest level of care in prosthetic products and services to all levels of amputees and their families. We don’t just provide a prosthesis, we provide an experience. One that is rich in quality care, education, the use of innovative prosthetic technology and patient outcomes. We provide a gateway to an improved quality of life for amputees and their families.”

Join us in this joyous celebration of being able to serve amputees and their families for 65 years! And thank you to those amputees who we have serviced, and for trusting us with your care.

The Value of a Free Prosthetic Consultation

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.
