Springer Prosthetic & Orthotic Services - A 78-Year-Old Bionic Man...
 

A 78-Year-Old Bionic Man… (12min, 23sec):

Dave Beck’s ankle was crushed in a 2005 car crash and later developed an insidious infection. After nearly two years of excruciating pain and heavy medication, he scheduled below-the-knee amputation surgery, saying “…it was the right thing for me”. Like other expectant amputees, Dave had many questions about life after amputation. He found the answers from Joe Springer, owner of Springer Prosthetics and Orthotic Services, in Lansing. Starting with a standard titanium prosthesis in late 2007, in June of 2014 Joe helped Dave qualify for a bionic ankle and foot called the BiOM. At 78 years old, Dave has returned to his active lifestyle and playing golf daily. He’s truly a “bionic man”. This is his story:

Anthony (30sec.):
Anthony is a very active boy whose leg was amputated due to a congenital condition. After many ill-fitting and broken prosthetic devices, the university hospital doctors who were treating him, told his mother that nothing else could be done. Anthony's mother saw a Springer Prosthetics TV ad and came in for a free second opinion. Our team fitted her son with a proper prosthetic and he was soon back on the diamond with his buddies playing shortstop, racing go-carts and shooting hoops. Anthony is living his dreams and he and his mom are thankful that they found the caring experts at SPOS.

 

 

 

 

Springer Prosthetic & Orthotic Services - Kitty Wunderlin
The Gladys “Kitty” Wunderlin Story (30sec.):

As a result of cancer, Kitty underwent below the knee amputation surgery in 2002  at the prestigious Mayo Clinic.  After her release Kitty began prosthetic treatment at the Rehab Institute of Chicago.  But driving to Chicago every week for treatment became more and more difficult and Kitty’s residual limb was developing fitting problems that weren’t being addressed.  She then switched to a prosthetic facility closer to her Kalamazoo area home but her painful problems continued.  Kitty became discouraged and more dependent on a wheel chair.

After searching the internet she chatted with an amputee from Detroit who told Kitty that she received her prosthetic care from Springer Prosthetic and Orthotic Services in Lansing and couldn’t be happier.  Kitty had never felt comfortable with the prosthetists or staff of the three previous facilities.  So she made an appointment at Springer Prosthetics and was pleasantly surprised by the care and attention she received.  The staff at Springer Prosthetics made Kitty feel welcomed and showed genuine concern for her well being.  She now drives two hours to Lansing to get her prosthetic care and says it is worth every minute spent on the road.  When Kitty first started as a patient at Springer Prosthetics, she was a very active second grade teacher.  She has since retired, is pain free and continues to stay active.

There are 70 thousand amputations in this country per year due to diabetes complications, some of which are preventable. Diabetes is a lifelong disease that can cause blindness, kidney failure, high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, nerve damage to your extremities, amputation and even death. In this video, Joe Springer explains the alarming diabetes statistics and trends, and offers expert advice to diabetics and their families.

"Clare Man Is First in Area with 'Bionic' Ankle":

     
Clare County MI - Sheriff Dept. detective Mike Coon is an active guy: chasing down criminals in foot races (he leads the force with 5 for 5), scuba diving in murky waters for evidence and corpses, installing surveillance systems in trees from tall aluminum ladders – he's also a below the knee amputee. After breaking and wearing out six different prosthetic legs, Mike was referred to Springer Prosthetics where certified prosthetist Jeff Purdy suggested he try the world's most advanced bionic foot, the BiOM by iWalk. Mike field-tested the unit and his insurance company approved it for him. On 7.23.12, after running and jumping on the battery-powered, sensor-driven device, he walked out of Springer Prosthetics and Orthotic Services' Lansing clinic wearing the BiOM, after giving the media some time during his final fitting.
