Experienced Prosthetic User
We specialize in enhancing the fit and function of prostheses to maximize comfort and usability for each patient. Through a guided strength and rehabilitation program, we provide techniques to alleviate limb, bone, and joint pain as well.
We ensure each patient is equipped with a prosthesis that helps reach their goals. Fillauer Clinic provides custom prostheses that are uniquely designed with the patient’s medical, vocational, recreational, and environmental needs in mind.
There are many choices and questions involved at each step along an amputee’s journey. “Is physical therapy right for me? If so, where do I go?” “What rehabilitation program should I be doing?” “What prosthetic technology is best for my goals and lifestyle?” Fillauer Clinic educates and guides patients to make well-informed decisions and to follow the best road map to achieve their goals with a prosthesis. Education is provided on multiple topics including suspension methodology, strength and conditioning, gait training, and running programs.
Advanced Training Program
For prosthetic users wanting to go beyond walking, Fillauer Clinic offers an advanced training program. In the program, we teach skills on effective use of specialized prostheses for running, cross fit, weight lifting, hiking, cycling, and more.
Prosthetic Component Trials
Fillauer Clinic uses state-of-the-art prosthetic components. Equipping our patients with the best technology is key in achieving mutual success. Eligible patients will have the opportunity to participate in component trials with the manufacturer, such as for vacuum pumps, feet, or knees. Prior to delivery, Fillauer Clinic can facilitate a trial period for patients to test a component to ensure the best match.
Prosthetic Socket Assessment
Our patients function at their highest level when the best-fit prosthetic components are paired with a well-fitting and functioning socket. Fillauer Clinic will expertly assess the fit and function of each patient’s prosthesis and adjust accordingly to achieve the best possible results.
