Made in Grosse Pointe – Above & Beyond Orthopedics & Prosthetics

In the usual course of life, feeling different is one thing, but feeling limited by those differences is another. People in Grosse Pointe, MI, and Metro Detroit are dealing with limitations right now—limitations to homelife, to enjoyment, and to their ability to move confidently and freely about our world. At Above & Beyond Orthopedics, we specialize in smashing limitations.

As a minority- and woman-owned business, we know how frustrating it can be to feel limited. That’s why we pride ourselves on providing orthotic and prosthetic devices that fit your needs perfectly and empower you to make the most of your desires, opportunities, and life.

Here’s just a little of what we do to restore a sense of pride and sense of self.

Orthotics

Mobility and self-reliance are important components of a fulfilling life. But for people struggling with age, injuries, slow healing surgical wounds, or arthritis, mobility is a finite resource. Thankfully, with something as simple and remarkable as a brace designed to fit your ankle, foot, or knee, you can reclaim your life and your independence.

The right orthotic can open up a world of possibilities, from finally managing osteoarthritis to traveling (for once) without pain. Orthotic devices can also give you the confidence you need to maintain a more active lifestyle, improving your mood, your health, and your general outlook.

Prosthetics

There’s something of our own essence in every part of our bodies. The loss of a hand, arm, foot, or leg can leave us feeling less than whole. Then there are the everyday challenges of adjusting to life without a limb. Common tasks like cooking, bathing, or playing with your children can quickly become puzzles of balance, grip, capability.

At Above & Beyond, we custom fit prosthetic devices and support their comfortable, everyday use with a dedicated line of sockets and liners

Lower Extremity Prosthetics

The loss of a foot, leg, or knee can feel completely ruinous. So much of our world is designed for two legs. Thankfully, development and innovation in the field of lower extremity prosthesis is directly correlated to the significance of the body parts that these devices are designed to replace. Now, in the 21st century, tech-assisted custom orthotics use machine learning to mimic your natural gait, powering the prosthetic device with you as you move. 

At Above & Beyond, you’ll find options you never knew existed. We offer the following styles of lower extremity prosthesis:

  • Syme’s Prosthesis (Below the Ankle)
  • Transtibial Prosthesis (Below the Knee)
  • Knee Disarticulation (Through-knee or T.K.)
  • Transfemoral Prosthesis (Above-knee or A.K.)

Upper Extremity Prosthesis

The human hand is a marvel of biological engineering. Our opposable thumbs and ability to articulate our digits have made us the tool-masters of the natural world. In response, our human world has been designed for hands. We interact with the stove, TV, and even doors by gripping, pressing, turning. 

The loss of an arm or hand can quickly wipe tasks from consideration. Even cooking breakfast for your family takes an awkward and difficult turn. Thankfully, like lower extremity prosthetics, new devices are being developed, mastered, and customized to restore independence and enjoyment. 

At Above & Beyond, we offer the following upper extremity prosthetic devices:

  • Passive Prosthesis (Cosmetic)
  • Body-Powered Prosthesis 
  • Myoelectric Prosthesis
  • Others

By using muscle contractions elsewhere on your body, body-powered prosthetics provide a reliable grip. Combining body power with battery power results in myoelectric devices which can learn and adapt to your needs. 

Smash Limitations with Above & Beyond Orthopedics

When taken at a glance, the whole world seems designed for people with two hands, two feet, ten toes, and ten fingers. But appearances can be deceiving. In truth, our world is designed for each of us, and limitations are in the mind. 

At Above & Beyond, we help customers in Grosse Pointe and Metro Detroit, MI, realize their full potential by restoring mobility, ability, and harmony. After the loss of a limb, it’s all too easy to settle for a life of limitations. We’re here to tell you that there’s another way.
