About American Limb & Orthopedic Company
Established in the mid-1940’s, American Limb & Orthopedic Company (ALOC) is owned and managed by ABC Board Certified orthotists and prosthetists. We share a common goal and commitment to providing high quality, innovative and comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic services to local hospitals, nursing homes, and the community at large. Our focus is to consistently provide professional and patient-centered care that is accessible and affordable.
ALOC provides the full range of treatments for individuals who have suffered debilitating illnesses and injuries. Our commitment to state-of-the-art technology has help us on the forefront of orthotic and prosthetic care. Our services are highly personalized and customized to each patient’s needs. Successful treatment depends on many factors, but an important consideration is the knowledge, skill, and experience of the practitioner and the ongoing relationship that is established with the patient and the rehabilitation team.
ALOC employs only American Board for Certification (ABC) certified orthotists and prosthetists. ABC is the national certifying/accrediting body of the orthotic and prosthetic profession. Created in 1948, ABC serves to promote the welfare of the physically challenged by certifying practitioners who have met high educational, ethical and competency standards through university post-graduate degree, practical experience and rigorous written and clinical examination.
ALOC orthotists and prosthetists work closely with the physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, nurse, and family to ensure progress towards recovery and rehabilitation. Through thorough assessment of the patient’s functional status – physical examination, medical history, and rehabilitation goals – the appropriate orthotic and/or prosthetic treatment plan can be derived to achieve the greatest level of mobility, comfort, and function possible.
ALOC maintains fully staffed, ABC accredited patient care centers which serve northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. ALOC also evaluates and treats patients in hospitals and other medical facilities, including physicians’ offices. Recognizing the critical nature of some situations, our staff provides 24-hour emergency service to hospitals.
We accept private insurance, worker’s compensation, Medicare, Medicaid and are contracted with dozens of insurance networks.
