Sports Prosthetics

sports prosthetics

At Horton’s Orthotics & Prosthetics, we utilize the latest innovations in non-bionic and bionic technology to craft prosthetic devices specifically for athletic uses. This branch of prosthetics pulls from the clinical and scientific research from a range of disciplines, including the work of mechanical, biomechanical, electrical, and industrial engineers and designers, to create prosthetic legs, arms, feet, ankles, hands, fingers, and toes.

The main goal of bionic technology in the world of sports prosthetics is creating responsive devices that behave like human limbs, mimicking the function of the bones and muscles necessary for movement. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can also be utilized in bionic technology to reduce strain to other parts of the body and enhance the performance and safety of the prosthetic device.

The world of sports prosthetics is continually evolving, with recent advancements allowing amputee athletes to not only restore lost muscle function, but elevate their limb performance. These developments have allowed many athletes to compete professionally, both on regional and international levels.

While there are many bionic and non-bionic prosthetic device options available to suit a specific athlete’s needs, not everyone is a candidate for the most advanced devices and not every insurance plan provides coverage. Speak to your clinician to discover the best options for you.

When Will My Prosthetic Be Ready?

Remember – your prosthetic will be ready about two weeks AFTER your insurance approves your claim. We can’t begin production until your insurance has approved your prosthetic. We know how frustrating the wait can be, and we do everything in our power to make sure that your prosthetic gets to you as soon as humanly possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
