On Call with Dr. AP: Happy New Year

On behalf of LIM Innovations, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and take a moment to reflect. 2014 proved to be a fantastic year, and we are excited for 2015.

After founding the company nearly four years ago, with nothing more than a concept, the thought of going to market with a product seemed a distant reality.

There were hiccups along the way. There were moments of doubt and fear. There were times I wondered if we would ever have a viable product. There were thoughts of scrapping the entire project. There were mistakes.

There was success.

On September 4th, 2014, we launched the Infinite Socket. We built a team, concepts came to fruition, and we finally had a product worthy of the market.

2014 was the biggest year in our short history, and we hope to make 2015 even bigger. We have established clinical partnerships in more than 11 states, provided upward of 50 sockets, and established LIM Innovations in the marketplace.

As we continue to develop the Infinite Socket and expand our clinical network, we aim to breakdown new barriers.

In 2015, we will release a below-knee version of the Infinite Socket and break ground on a high-performance version. There are certainly other concepts that will emerge in 2015. If 2014 has taught us anything, it is to prepare for the unexpected.

Thank you to our clinical partners and loyal followers for making this a reality. We are happy to have you with us in the New Year.

I vow to give our dedicated readers a weekly commentary on industry trends, the latest LIM events, entrepreneurial lessons I learn as the CEO and Co-Founder of LIM Innovations, and pearls of wisdom as a practicing Orthopaedic surgeon. I ask you join me at the most obscure hours of the night as you all “take call” with Dr. AP. I view this as an opportunity for our supporters to connect with me and to share what happens behind the scenes here at LIM Innovations.

  1. Hi, my younger brother was in a farming accident on October 20, 2014. He lost his right arm above the elbow and right leg above the knee. He is in need of prosthetics for both extremities at this time. He needs something that is versatile and water proof as well. Prior to the accident he was a Senior Paramedic and firefighter and farmed in his off duty time.
    Can you please help us? We are in South Eastern North Carolina. He’s presently talking with prosthetists at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC. He’s open to doing clinical trials or experimental options.

  2. I have been a bi-lateral bka for about three years now – – my left leg is a Symes amputation just above the foot and my right leg was amputated below the knee. I currently get my prosthetics from Stan Patterson at Prosthetic & Orthotic Associates in Orlando, FL.

    My question is a general one about amputees and San Francisco: I have found it nearly impossible to find out anything about amputee life in San Francisco. My wife and I used to visit San Francisco at least once a year for the last 20 years or more, but since I lost my legs, I have been reluctant to return to a city with so many steep hills.

    I have tried to find amputee associations in San Francisco without luck (the closest I got was finding an amputee who lived in Oakland and never went into San Francisco, which has not much help.)

    Anyway, I just wondered if any double-amputees using your prosthetics were able to negotiate the San Francisco hills. It remains one of my favorite cities in the world and I have sometimes thought of retiring there.

    Any information you have for me would be most welcome.
