On October 13th 1996, when I was 8 years old, I lost my leg in a lawn mower accident.
Since I lost my leg I went to another prosthetic company, and I was very dissatisfied with my service. They really lost sight of my needs and were more focused on the money.
I was in search of a new prosthetic company in the area, and I came across Bremer Prosthetics.
I started coming to Bremer and could not be happier with their services. They are incredibly helpful and really focus on my wants and needs.
They do not rush the appointment and schedule patients accordingly so you have little to no wait. The staff happily greets you when you arrive, offers you something to drink, and is sure you are taken care of prior to going back to see the certified prosthetist.
The prosthetists at Bremer understand that everyone is at different levels and wants to be sure the fit is as comfortable as possible. They do not move on to the next step of the prosthesis until you’re satisfied and they also feel you’re ready to move on to the next step, which has made a huge difference in comfort.
I work 8 hour days, 6 days a week on my feet, and since coming to Bremer, I have been in a lot less pain come the end of the day. They know my goal is to be able to work 12 hour days on my feet, and they are continually working on my prosthesis to be sure I am able to reach that comfort level.
I did not let losing my leg stop me from living a normal life. I enjoy martial arts, rock climbing, dirt bike riding, kayaking, and many other activities. Bremer has made such a huge difference in my life and I continually tell others about how wonderful my experience with them has been.
