Orthopedic Appliance Company has been serving the mountains and foothills of North Carolina with the highest quality lower and upper leg prosthetic devices since 1960. We are here to help you through the process of developing and adjusting to life with your lower or upper artificial leg.
Our prosthetic staff can help you best by being involved with your rehabilitation team as soon as possible.

In our interactions with patients and their families, we are available to answer questions and help relieve any anxiety they might have.
There is no one-size-fits-all for a prosthetic device, so the first step for developing your lower leg artificial limb involved thorough preparation for your specific needs. Then we develop the definitive prosthesis utilizing the highest quality materials. Several factors are considered for the design and fabrication of your artificial leg and knee device:
Once the device has been developed, we help make sure that it is properly aligned and fits the patient’s needs. For children and teenagers who are still growing, they will likely go through this process a few times.
