Here's what's new in the world of prosthetics and orthotics

There are all kinds of exciting changes and innovations happening in the field of prosthetics and orthotics. And at Syracuse Prosthetic Center we work hard to stay on top of them and to share them with the community.   

On this page we bring you information and updates on the latest news from academy meetings, national forums and product manufacturers. We encourage you to come back often to learn the latest news. It may help you find something that will work even better for you than your current prosthesis.


"I have been to many prosthetists since losing my leg. I am now in the most comfortable socket I have ever worn. I am able to wear my prosthesis for 16 hours a day without discomfort. When I am not working, I enjoy biking, hiking and canoeing." – Ron Hepler, Williamson

"I have an above knee amputation. I'm 89 years old and I use my prosthesis all day, every day. If I'm not a walking advertisement, there's no such thing! I highly recommend these folks to anybody." – Sidney Greenberg, Cazenovia, NY
