Job Responsibilities: I do fabrication of prosthetic and orthotic devices. I order stock for the facility and assist with shipping/receiving and shop maintenance.
Why I work in the O&P industry: This work allows me to be creative. The things I make can actually be used to enhance other people’s lives.
Projects: When C-Legs first came out, I had a great deal of difficulty making adequate cosmetic covers for them. I talked to the manufacturer and to the other technicians, I researched on the Internet, but the problems persisted. Finally, a prosthetic central fabrication manager gave me some suggestions that I could work with, and the results are much better.
Hobbies: I like spending time with my wife and my dog. I enjoy movies, bicycling and Asian Studies.
