Cameron Casparro

We would like to introduce our patient, Cameron Casparro.

Cameron is two years old and is one of our prosthetic patients. He was in a lawn mower accident a year ago, which left him with a loss of his limb, just below the knee.

Up until recently, he had been unable to walk. Now, with the help of his below the knee prosthetic device, he’s able to stand, walk, run and just be a kid again.

His excitement and beautiful smile lit Up the office the day he came in to be fit with his below knee prosthesis.

We are honored to have been part of Cameron’s first walk. It is a gift we will treasure.

Treasures, like Cameron, are just one reason Barry Fowler, Sr. has been providing orthotic & prosthetic services for over 45 years.

Congratulations Cameron!!

 

A note on children’s below knee prosthesis:
Trauma is one of the top four reasons for amputation in children. There are numerous ways in which a child amputee is different from an adult amputee. For example, the residual limb for a child will continue to grow. And the demands on a child’s below knee prosthesis is typically more than an adult’s due to a child’s activity level of playfulness, when compared to a sedentary adult. A child can generally begin the fitting process of a below knee process at about the time they’re able to stand.

We have a large walking room for prosthetic patients to be fit in. They also have their adjustments made in this room and any measurements that are needed will be taken here also.

Our casting department will handle making cast molds or plaster casts of your brace in order to get it ready for our plastics department, as well as, our main lab & finish fabrication department.

Our plastics department takes care of getting the correct plastic and placement on to your orthotic or prosthetic device. It’s also one of the last departments your brace sees before heading to our main lab & finish fabrication department.
