Northern Prosthetics teams up with Martin Bionics
There is brand new, cutting edge technology for prosthetic patients, and Northern Prosthetics & Orthotics is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Martin Bionics to bring this line of products to our patients here in Aroostook County!
As all Prosthetists know, the greatest single challenge for prosthetic fitting is volume fluctuation, and Martin Bionics’ new Socket-less Socket™ technology is designed to address this issue and eliminate the need for multiple socks to accommodate these volume changes.
During the month of August, NP&O will be flying one of Martin Bionics representatives from Oklahoma City to our facility here in Presque Isle to train our Prosthetists in order to provide Socket-less Socket™ technology to our patients.To learn more about Socket-less Socket ™ technology, please visit www.martinbionics.com.
