“I spent nearly a year in a wheelchair without a prosthesis or a prosthetist that was committed to my well-being. I met Mark and I was walking up stairs and ramps within weeks. He spent the time with me to make sure my prosthesis felt good. If it wasn’t for Mark, I would probably still be in a wheelchair.”
“I have been an amputee for about 12 years. I was in a motorcycle accident in 1985. I developed an infection in my right leg. In 2001 I decided it was time to have the leg amputated before it got worse.
I first stopped at Kinetic when my wife told me that she met the owner of a new prosthetic practice. It was time for a new leg, and I was not completely happy with the service I was using. When I walked in, Mark and Josh made you feel like they knew you. We went to an exam room, and they took a look at the prosthetic that I had. Mark recommended a different system. My new leg is a big improvement. I have more range of motion, and it is more comfortable. In less than a week, I went from stopping in to check the place out, to walking out with a new leg.
The leg I had when I walked in was about 4 years old, and worn out. The biggest problem was that the suspension system was delicate. If I got on my knees to do work, it would put a hole in the sleeve, and it would no longer seal. I also had to be careful putting the liner on, or it would split. Mark interviewed me, and I told him my concerns, and I told him how I worked and what I liked to do. Mark showed me what he thought would be a good system for me. We went with the Ossur Iceross Seal-In® V liner and socket. It gives me the benefit of a suction suspension system, without the delicate suspension sleeve.
I like the fact that prosthetics is Kinetic's only business. Mark and Josh take the time to make sure you have a proper fit. They use follow up visits to make sure it continues to fit, and make adjustments as needed. This is hands down the best care and service I have ever had from a prosthetic practice!”
