Jake R. Wood, CP, F.A.A.O.P.
We primarily focus on patients who suffered from arm and leg injuries and severe traumas.
Another focus of ours is of utilizing the latest in prosthetics technology.
With the increased agility and flexibility of prosthetics, athletic activities such as jogging and skiing can become a regular part of life. The prosthetist Jake Wood encourages these activities and assists patients through the adjustment of limbs to the specific requirements of each sport.
He has developed a unique program in which the patient has an integral role in determining their success. Jake’s rehabilitation program is to empower the patient with knowledge, choices and to be involved in the decision process.
The patient is the most important person in determining the success of their prosthetic program. Our goal is to have ready and set to continue your previous life style. Yes, your life will be different but we will show you how to accomplish your goals when using your prosthesis. You and Dr. Wood will work together so that you will be able to perform the daily tasks, activities and hobbies that you enjoyed prior to your amputation.
The prosthetic rehabilitation program should include empowering the patient with knowledge, information and choices. The patient needs to be an integral part of their prosthetic program. The patient’s responsibility is to learn to develop a relationship between themselves and Jake Wood. It is important for the patient to express their feelings and always ask questions.
A successful program will maximize your residual limb shrinkage, skeletal and muscular changes, and your balance and prosthetic performance. We want to maximize your goals in your preparatory program and we strive for minimal changes with your definitive prosthesis. It is important that there are minimal changes after your definitive prosthesis has been made, to ensure a well fitting and long lasting prosthesis for you. O&P Associate’s goal is to have you walking correctly and be comfortably happy.
During the initial fitting trials, Jake Wood will guide you in the basic principles of using the prosthesis, fine tuning the fit and alignment as needed. Although Jake will, by necessity, be the first to offer initial training with the prosthesis, the majority of the training will be accomplished under the direction of a physical therapist. This includes simple shifting of your weight from one leg to the other, to walking between parallel bars, managing daily activities like bathing, walking on different terrains, stair climbing, and getting in and out of an automobile.
The needs of amputees are as different as our personalities. It is important to understand that each patient’s prosthesis is customized to meet his or her individual needs. There are over 250 companies in the world that Jake Wood works with to continually individualize state of the art medically necessary advanced prosthetics.
A G-WALK application for prosthetics elevates my practice above any competing facility. I can offer objective functional gait analysis which improves communication with referral sources. I can confirm efficacy of one device versus another which provides protection and justification against RAC audits. G-WALK is the ideal solution to treat pathologies related to gait disorders. It is suitable for a wide range of applications: assessment, diagnosis and follow-up of prosthetic rehabilitative interventions.
