Colorado prosthetics company helps amputees find their footing

Aug 19, 2017

July 25, 2017 Flow of support has helped Castle Rock Wellspring Community grow and thrive Quorum’s patent pending technology allows the socket to adjust to the size of the limb that expands and contracts throughout a day. It works like the dial on a hard hat that allows wearers to adjust the helmet to the size of their head. Studies have shown that the size of one’s thigh is bigger in the morning than it is in the afternoon, leaving above-the-knee amputees with a too tight or too lose fitting throughout the day. With Quorum’s Quatro socket, amputees can adjust the fitting as their limb changes. “It empowers the patient to take charge of the fit.” Hughes said he was back boxing within a week of getting his new fitting. His mobility “gradually increased to where I can kick from both sides.” Quorum’s socket “is an amazing game changer,” he said. “If it weren’t for Joe and the socket, I don’t know where I would be at.” QUORUM PROSTHETICS Johnson knows a thing or two about prosthetic limbs. He lost his left leg when he was 12 in a motocross accident. His mission as he grew up “was to help as many amputees as possible,” he said. In 1998, he founded Quorum Prosthetics, which makes prosthetic arms and legs, custom bracing and the Quatro sockets. The company is a licensed partner with Biodesigns, creator of the Hi-Fidelity Interface, which gets the socket closer to the bone by employing an alternating compression and release design. The sockets are time consuming and expensive to make. It takes about eight hours to manufacture one socket, three times what it might take for a traditional socket. That means one technician can do one socket per work day. Roughly 15 amputees currently wear the Quatro compression socket, which can cost the patient $15,000. Most insurance companies will cover the cost, Johnson said. Quorum Prosthetics employs a dozen workers throughout its offices in Windsor, Aurora and Cheyenne. Tags:
