Patient Spotlight: Andre
Andre works hard…all day. He has a family and job that requires him to move quickly, at a level many 'able-bodied' people would have a hard time keeping up with.
Andre is also an above-knee amputee.
When Andre needed prosthetic care, his physicians wanted him to receive a device and treatment that would bring him back to his full capabilities quickly - he was sent to MD LABS.
The Prosthetist at MD LABS fit Andre with the latest advances in socket design and componentry, utilizing a micro processor knee unit that calculates his walking needs thousands of times a second.
This computer-controlled knee, along with a comfortable secure socket, allows Andre to move, sit, stand, climb and descend stairs without hesitation.
His full-time job requires him to perform, and he is often met with a surprised look when people find out he is an above-knee amputee - usually after he tells them!
MD LAB Prosthetists continue to work with Andre, constantly monitoring his components for proper function and making any adjustments needed to optimize his capabilities.
The goal at MD LABS is to keep the patient active and healthy, spending less time in our office and more time enjoying life.
