Scope of Services Include Lower and Upper Extremity Prostheses

Because each individual has unique needs regarding level of amputation, function, durability, comfort and appearance, our prosthetic staff fits and fabricates a wide variety of both upper and lower extremity prostheses.

Our clinicians are experienced in creating prosthetic devices that range from a partial hand or foot, to those requiring prostheses as a result of total shoulder or hip disarticulation, as well as upper and lower extremity bi-lateral amputations.

Our expertise extends to pediatric, adult and geriatric prosthetics.

Leaders in Technology

Snell Laboratory firmly established our leadership in technology in the early 1990’s as the first independent prosthetics facility to bring computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to Arkansas.

This pledge of bringing the latest in technology and best in care continues with our expertise in various applications of myo-electric and microprocessor components for upper extremity prosthetics and microprocessor components for lower limb prosthetics, when appropriate.

Your physician, prosthetist, and therapist—along with your family members—comprise the support team that helps and guides you to progress and develop your skill at manipulating your prosthesis more easily, whether you choose a microprocessor design or a more basic functional design depending on your lifestyle and needs.

New Prostheses…New Possibilities

“State of the art” changes rapidly, so we advise any amputee who has been wearing their prosthesis for several years to ask your prosthetist to update you on the latest design improvements, and discuss possible upgrades that may make a world of difference in expanding your functional capabilities.
