Hernan Luna, CPO, LPO, owner and Clinical Director of Allied, visited Hilliard, Ohio to complete his Touch Link™ Academy Training. This week-long training program created by Touch Bionics, provides the practitioner hands-on training on evaluation techniques, product selection and rehabilitation guidelines for fitting patients with the iLimb™ Digits and iLimb™ Revolution prosthetic hand.
Allied is the first facility in the Miami area to have a practitioner receive Certification for fitting both the iLimb™ Digits and ILimb™ Revolution Hand.
"This visit to Touch Bionics was a great opportunity for me as a Prosthetist. It was wonderful to learn from such a passionate group of individuals interested in ensuring positive outcomes for upper extremity amputees. The technology is magnificent, as was seeing the look on my patient's face as he made use of his arm again," said Luna.
"I'm eager to put what I have learned into practice when working with my upper extremity patients."
"I cannot find the correct words for thanking you for the magnificent work that you have done on my prostheses."
— Jean C.
"We have had the opportunity to meet people that are so kind, generous and loving and it is a pleasure to be able to see my grandson walk again after four years in a wheelchair. Everyone at Allied will always be in my heart."
"When I met Mr. Luna and the staff at Allied, I understood that this was a family, worthy of my trust. Today, I feel that I made the correct decision in choosing them to fit me with my prosthesis."
— Ovidio C.
"I adore the work done by everyone at Allied and I feel they inspired me to walk again, and I have a lot of gratitude and appreciation for a job well done."
