Sports Prosthetics in New Mexico
At our sports prosthetics company in Las Cruces, we strive to make prosthetic limbs a normal part of sports and recreation. Regardless of your fitness experience, we can help you learn the proper movement and injury prevention techniques needed to excel at sports you enjoy.
Custom Athletic Prosthetics for Runners & Other Sportsmen
Nothing is more important than helping you stay active and embrace all the activities you love.
At PrimeCare Orthotics & Prosthetics, we have helped countless athletes with custom running and fitness prosthetic needs. Athletic prosthetics have come a long way, and we have access to the best technology to help you perform your best.
Depending on where your amputation occurred, we can help fit you with an upper or lower-limb prosthetic that allows you to continue to enjoy your favorite activities. Prosthetics and sports are a perfect match with our caring team and innovative technology.
Prosthetic Devices for Sports We Provide in New Mexico
Our custom prosthetic devices enable amputees to keep participating in the sports they love, from running to golfing, skiing, and more, as well as team sports. We carefully select parts from leading manufacturers to guarantee optimum performance and the lightest weight possible, enabling professional and recreational athletes to benefit from top-tier products.
Custom Direct Prosthetic Socket System for Runners & Other Athletes
A prosthetic socket joins your residual limb (the stump) with the prosthesis. All sockets are custom-fitted to your residual limb and should have a snug, comfortable fit to allow you to be active.
Advanced prosthetic systems allow individuals to run further than ever before and therefore have a chance to participate in sports at the highest level. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a novice athlete, the Custom Direct Prosthetic Socket System can make your activities easier and safer.
Sports Prosthetics Technology & Manufacturers We Work With
At PrimeCare, we strongly believe in providing the best quality prosthetics for athletic amputees. That's why we actively collaborate with top prosthetic manufacturers, such as Ossur and Ottobock.
They supply us with the best quality custom-made prosthetics, such as:
- Ottobock Sports Knee joint: a modular knee joint for active people who participate in sports and other activities that require a high level of mobility.
- Ossur Cheetah® Knee: a lightweight polycentric prosthetic knee designed for runners and sprinters.
- Ottobock X3: a microprocessor-controlled knee that supports active users with a smooth, natural gait.
How We Provide Sports Prosthetics in New Mexico
To ensure effective care, we follow a meticulous process:
- Stage 1: Free Consultation
If you’re interested in learning more about our different sports and athletic prosthetics solutions but are unsure where to begin, take advantage of our free consultations. We’re happy to discuss your options and show you how we can help.
- Stage 2: First Appointment and Measurements
After your consultation, we will begin working to fit you for your prosthetic device. You’ll work with a prosthetist who will take a scan or cast of your limb and take any necessary measurements that we’ll use to create your device.
- Stage 3: Authorization
We'll work on some administrative steps as soon as we have your information and measurements. We will work to verify your insurance coverage and fill any prescriptions you might need during this time. Transparency in this step will help give you peace of mind.
- Stage 4: Prosthetics Fabrication
PrimeCare’s first-time amputees are fitted with temporary prosthetics for 3-12 months. After careful monitoring and evaluation, we select definitive solutions that best suit your condition and lifestyle.
Dedicated monitoring via our app and regular checkups assessing the suitability of your prosthetic prescription as you progress is vital to ensure comfort and mobility.
- Stage 5: Fit, Delivery & Socket Fabrication
Once the prosthetic and the socket have been fabricated, we will have the final product ready for you to try on! We hope it will exceed your expectations, and we’ll work to ensure that the fit and function are exactly what you expected.
- Stage 6: Progress Tracking and Follow Up
Our process doesn’t stop there. Perhaps the most important step in fitting you with your prosthetic device is following up with you at regular intervals to see how you are doing and to address any issues surrounding the fit or functionality of your device.
