Infants and children with a prosthetic need are widely dispersed within their population. In fact, they make up only 5% of the persons needing prosthetic help. For that simple reason, any given local practitioner gets very little experience working with the unique needs of children and their families. The entire prosthetics profession has evolved around the concept of a “local practice”. A prosthestist builds his or her local practice by building relationships with the medical doctors, (primarily orthopedic surgeons), who perform amputations, and the overwhelming majority of those amputations are performed upon adults. Conversely, many prosthetic fittings for infants and children are a result of a congenital limb difference, and in the context of a given “local population” extremely rare. It is little wonder, then, that the comprehensive prosthetic rehabilitation requirements unique to infants and children, as well as the training and guidance required by their parents, is sorely inadequate. Pediatric Prosthetic Inc. was founded to better serve the kids and you parents by literally, going the extra mile. Their President, Linda Putback-Bean, has been traveling coast to coast for most of her years in practice, fitting children with prosthetic arms. She has a unique insight in how to organize and manage a National Practice, while at the same time giving each family full access to her, as if she were right down the street.
