APO Technologies presents an electronic prosthetic alignment platform to provide improved documentation and minimize audit risk for prosthetists, increasing both revenue for providers and the standard of care for patients.
The platform consists of a calibration device and software suite to objectively measure and share data for prosthetic alignments.
1.75 million patients have a lower limb prosthetic, with approximately 400,000 new prosthesis fittings/year
No standard exists for measuring & documenting proper prosthetic alignments, creating risk for recovery audits
Improper alignments also result in falls, tissue breakdown, and increased clinical visits for patients
