Inland Artificial Limb & Brace

Our ABC Certified Practitioners help each of our patients experience independence, maximum mobility, an enhanced quality of life. All clinical staff must always maintain their accreditation. In order to do so they must actively participate in the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics, & Pedorthics MCE Program. Which ensures each individual takes continuing education courses that are relevant to their certification. This allows the certified personnel to always keep up-to-date with new products, methods etc. Inland Artificial Limb & Brace also requires our certified staff to maintain current first aid, child, infant and adult CPR Training.
