Beeler Prosthetics and Orthotics provides custom fabricated and custom fit devices for all needs. Orthotics services begin with an evaluation of the affected area. Our process begins with you. We meet several times, and each time we are together, we strive to be more than practitioners. Our goal is to fit you with a device you need for the life you want. So, now that you have a prescription from your physician, our process begins. Each appointment takes about one hour.
What Can You Expect?
Our process begins with you. We meet several times, and each time we are together, we strive to be more than practitioners. Our goal is to fit you with a device you need for the life you want. So, now that you have a prescription from your physician, our process begins. Each appointment takes about one hour.
Appointment One, Introductions and Measurements
What is your mobility? Your strength? What are your goals? We take a history, get to know you, and give you information on financial policies and review your prescription. If we are able to, at this appointment we’ll take your measurements, a cast or a digital scan. We also schedule your second appointment for about a week later.
Appointment Two, Introductions and Measurements
This is where you get to try things out and walk, stand and move around with a prototype of your new device. Have your most commonly worn shoes at hand and wear loose-fitting pants or shorts. Our prototype is to make sure it’s fitting comfortably for you. We show you how the product works, how to move, and how to maneuver. From this, we’ll make adjustments, or do new measurements to ensure it is fit for you. We’ll also schedule your third appointment.
Appointment Three, Final Fitting
Like a final fitting, we will fit and align your new device. We will also provide instructions for wear and maintenance: proper donning and doffing and hygiene. Additionally, we’ll discuss your wearing schedule tailored to your abilities, so you can improve usage and comfort in your new device. Hospital patients may be fit in the clinic or physical therapy where the prescription was issued. We’ll schedule a follow-up appointment for one week later.

As we proceed through the appointments and follow-up visits, please let us know about any medical problems, changes to medications, changes to you physically, or other conditions that can affect fit, adjustments and device options.
