Los Angeles Amputee Facilities That Install Prosthetic Limbs at No Charge

For amputees, often the only way to regain a normal sense of mobility is through a prosthetic limb. These limbs can vary dramatically in complexity from simple products that mimic the look of a missing limb, to complex devices that can help an amputee victim regain a sense of mobility and ability. Unfortunately, these products can be somewhat expensive depending on the type of medical insurance a victim carries, and what form of prosthetic they are looking to retrieve. That being said, there are some places in the Los Angeles area where amputee victims can receive prosthetic arms, legs, and other limbs and ligaments for free. In this article we will cover the damages amputations can cause, and how to get a prosthetic leg or arm for free in Los Angeles.

The Amputation Process
Amputations of legs, arms, and other limbs are often performed surgically by medical professionals to mitigate things like infection and other medical illnesses. However, amputations can also occur as a result of a traumatic accident or other physical injury. Amputations often require extensive medical care, which can leave many with significant financial damages. Hospitalization is expensive, and as a result, many who go through the amputation procedure don’t have the remaining funds to go an retrieve a prosthetic limb to replace the one that was lost. These limbs can vary dramatically in price, size, scale, and mobility. As a result, their prices can vary dramatically as well. Fortunately, there are ways in which victims of amputations can retrieve a prosthetic limb for free and can return to a prior level of mobility and ability.

How To Get A Prosthetic Leg, Arm, or other Limb for Free
As mentioned previously, prosthetic limbs can be incredibly expensive, especially if they are meant to replace former levels of ability. In some circumstances, medical insurance will cover the full price of a new limb. However, these insurance coverage plans can be quite expensive, and not many people have the resource for these kinds of plans. Fortunately, there are other options for amputees. Through some non-profit organizations, amputees can receive financial assistance to cover the full price of a prosthetic limb. Some of these foundations include:

  • Ability Found
  • Arms Within Reach Foundation
  • Amputee Blade Runners
  • Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF)
  • Chariots of Hope
  • Chive Charities
  • Fighting Back Scholarship Program
  • Heather Abbot Foundation
  • Life Nets: The Wheelchair Project
  • Limbs For Life Foundation
  • Limbs with Love
  • Limb Preservation Foundation
  • Mending Limbs Organization
  • National Amputation Foundation
  • National Military Family Association
  • Steve Chamberlin’s 50 Legs
  • Steps of Faith Foundation
  • The Wheelchair Recycler
  • Local Service Clubs

Through these or any other charitable funding foundation you may be able to retrieve the funds needed to cover the full price of a prosthetic limb. Often these foundations require that you apply for financial assistance, which can be done by following the steps bulleted below:

  • Find out what kind of prosthetic you require
  • Retrieve a prescription from your primary care physician
  • Gather all personal information regarding your disability
  • Apply to a foundation per particular foundation guidelines

Once you’ve received funding for your prosthetic limb, you can then go about purchasing your prosthetic limb. This can be done through the foundation which you received financial assistance from, or another third party prosthetic maker. Listed below are some of the medical facilities in Los Angeles that provide prosthetic limbs for amputees:

  • Hanger Clinic: Prosthetics & Orthotics
  • Smart Prosthetics Orthotics Inc
  • Dynamics Orthotics & Prosthetics, Inc.
  • Orthos-Pros Inc
  • Active Life Orthotics, Prosthetics & Compression
  • Universal Limb & Brace
  • Action Orthopedic Co
  • Aesthetic Prosthetics

  • Reseda Prosthetics & Orthotics
  • Hope Artificial Limb & Brace

While you may be able to receive funding for your prosthetic limb through a charitable foundation is another way in which you can receive monetary resources for a prosthetic. If you or a loved one were left an amputee due the negligence or misconduct of another, you might be eligible to file a claim for significant monetary compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
