Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics
Innovative Technologies in Orthotics and Prosthetics
We are investing in the future of Orthotics and Prosthetics by using revolutionary techniques and advances in Bionics. This helps us to give as much function as possible back to our patients. Some of the technologies that we have recently used are iLimb, Proprio foot and CLeg.

Carbon Fiber Feet
Face masks are used on patients with burns to help reduce scarring and to help protect those with face injuries from further damage. Spurs player Francisco Elson from the San Antonio Spurs 2006-2007 roster is seen here in a San Antonio Express News picture taken by their staff photographer William Luther wearing a mask we produced for Elson. Our technologically advanced process of fabricating a mask is much easier on the patient than older processes. Each mask is custom molded to the patient.

Noninvasive Shape Capture
Our facility utilizes the Omega Laser Scanner to capture the shape of the face for the mask. This technology reduces stress on the patient and increases accuracy of our products.Â The patient will be scanned and the image captured is modified using Tracer software. The modified image is carved out on a CAM machine then the mask is fabricated from the carved model. The combination of these technologies has proven to increase quality and consistency of our products.
