South County Artificial Limb & Brace

Our History

South County Artificial Limb and Woonsocket Artificial Limb and Brace provide four patient care offices.  They’re located in Wakefield and Woonsocket, Rhode Island and Pawcatuck and Plainfield, Connecticut

Since 1976 we’ve met the needs of patients throughout our area by providing quality custom made artificial limbs and braces of all types and levels of sophistication.  Throughout the years, we’ve worked with the area’s most respected health care professionals.

The Process

Our practitioners work diligently with each patient and physician to meet the specific therapeutic objectives of the individual patient.  We listen carefully to our patients and do our best to provide a prosthesis (artificial limb) or orthosis (brace) that closely matches each person’s needs and expectations without compromising what our experience tells us is in the patient’s best interest in terms of design, technology, and state of the art components.

It is a lifetime commitment and process.  We focus on building a lasting and caring relationship with each of our patients and work with them to achieve realistic objectives.

Convenience

With our Wakefield office in the South and Woonsocket in the North, convenient access is afforded to all of our patients.  We are the area’s only orthotics and prosthetic facility serving all of Rhode Island.  Add to that our satellite offices in Pawcatuck and Plainfield, Connecticut which gives access to patients from Westerly, Rhode Island  as well as the northeastern portion of Connecticut.  We also know that there is the occasional special circumstance and will provide on-site visits to our patients’ own homes as well as to special care facilities in those instances.

Commitment

We realize that many of our patients depend on our products and services over a long period of time.  As we have grown over the years, we have also maintained long-term relationships with patients who have been with us from the beginning.  Our commitment is to be there  for them and to view each of them as unique and special as they continue to choose us as their provider.
