Pictures-We have a lot of pictures and videos. If you want to see some products, simply flip through our many web pages. Chances are that you will see something similar to what your looking for. We are considered expert providers in BIONICS for the C-Leg, Compact, Rheo, Plie, Power Knee and Proprio' in our Lower Limb Prosthetics page. We are a Bionic/Microprocessor Limb Center. We have many pictures and videos of the Microprocessor Limbs.
We are a Bionic Limb Centre. We were among 23 people in the world invited to take part in the first Advanced Bionic Limb Symposium recently held in Atlanta, GA. What is Bionic Technology?? Bionic Technology is the marriage of computers to Prosthetic hardware to create an actual Artificial Intelligence that can automatically-in milliseconds, sense and react to the amputee's encounters during everyday walking. This creates a much more stable interaction between the user and walking situations. It creates it's own walking strategies for many different events. It has been proven to eliminate both falls and skin breakdown in unilateral and bilateral amputees. Instills much more confidence in the users abilities and allows the user to start noticing the beauty of nature instead of mentally concentrating on pathways to navigate. If you would like to discuss the possibility of utilizing Bionic Technology to increase your independence, please contact our office for a complimentary evaluation. We have received authorization by many insurances carriers including Medicare, Cigna, Workers Compensation and the Veterans Administration to name a few. The Veterans Administration has approved many of these for service connected Vets. Specializing in the utilization of the highest technology available, we offer Prosthetic limb users the opportunity to rely upon the newest technology. Our staff has been trained at providing and maintaining the latest breakthroughs in Prosthetic care. We are committed to bringing Bionic Technology to anyone that requires the added function and stability. To see a 2 minute video of one of our patients demonstrating a Proprio Bionic Foot/Ankle- go to our lower limb page. If you would like to discuss Bionic Technology and see if this is the right direction to increase your mobility, call our offices and set up an appointment. We actually have a demo unit in stock that we can try on your prosthesis!!

Beware of companies that advertise on TV. They do not provide good services or follow up. If a company is truly good, they do not need to advertise on TV or in print. They will have all of the business they can handle. They may make claims of electronic measurement and other "modern methods" but lack the expertise to provide you with a perfect product. Receiving a prosthesis fast from a fly by night company is not the best way to take care of a patient.
Our services are limited to the United States. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation, and most Insurance carriers, most credit cards and paypal. Patients are responsible for all deductibles, out of network fees, signed prescriptions, signed certificate of medical necessity forms, signed delivery sheets, down payments and non-covered items. If we determine that an item will not be covered by your insurance or you don not have a secondary insurance, we will require a 1/3 down payment for that item's balance when measurement performed, 1/3 on 1st fitting and the last 1/3 balance payment at time of delivery.
Each month we answer several questions posed to us from the public. We post the most useful questions and answers on a page titled ASK ABC.

Here are some facts to digest.
Fact: Diabetes and vascular insufficiency are the leading causes of amputation during peace time.
Fact: One cigarette reduces the blood supply to the lower extremity by 92% for 16 hours. So if you have the above problems, quit smoking.
Fact: Each dollar spent on rehabilitation saves $23.00 which would be required for alternative methods.
Fact: The total number of people with paralyses, deformity or orthopedic impairments is expected to increase by 25% by the year 2020.
Fact: The number of people who have an amputation and use a prosthesis is expected to rise by at least 47% by the year 2020.
Prosthetics is the science of evaluating, fabricating and fitting amputees for restoration of their amputated limb(s).
Orthotics is the science of evaluating, fabricating, and fitting supportive-corrective devices on patients.
All devices are either custom fabricated or custom fitted. Very little of what we do is strictly out of a package. See our pictures and videos of our high tech custom Prosthetic and Orthotic items.

Why ABC Practitioners?
We support the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics (ABC) practitioners. ABC currently requires each practitioner to have a minimum of a 4 year BS degree along with 1 year post graduation classroom education per each Prosthetics and Orthotics, PLUS one year residency each discipline post graduation. Their examination consists of a 3 hour written exam, 3 hour written simulation examination, and a 1 day practical examination that requires evaluation, measurement, fabrication. and fitting of a Prosthesis or Orthosis in front of real-live examiners. That's why it pays to ask if the practitioner is ABC Certified. If you are an ABC Certified CO, CP or CPO in good standing, or a ABC Accredited Facility and would like to talk to us about associating yourself with our organization, press HERE to send and Email to our office. We WILL return your Email ASAP. Part of the requirements to maintain our ABC certification is that we are required to attain a minimum of 75 hours per 5 year period for a single discipline practitioner and 100 hours for a multiple discipline practitioner of continuing education. Our staff goes well beyond that minimal amount.
We do provide limited house call services with insurance approval. Of course these services are ONLY for selected Prosthetic patients.
We follow the US Government's new HIPPA guidelines. All information attained through our interactions with you the patient are strictly held confidential in nature. The only sharing of information will be between yourself, Spears Prosthetics and Orthotics LLC, your physician, case manager, and your reimbursement company ONLY.
