Throughout the rest of this page, we’ll take a few minutes to discuss the services we provide for upper and lower prosthetics in more detail.
Let’s begin with a brief overview:
Celerity Prosthetics in Oklahoma City Offers Both Upper and Lower Extremity Prosthetic Services
The term extremity refers to the outermost parts of the body—the arms, legs, hands, and feet. Thus, upper extremity prosthetic care can be split into two categories which deals with the above elbow and below elbow, and lower extremity prosthetic care deals with the legs and feet. Lower extremity prosthetic care is often split into two subcategories: Above the Knee (often abbreviated as simply AK) prosthetics, and Below the Knee (or BK) prosthetics.
At Celerity Prosthetics, we offer a full range of services for both upper and lower extremity prosthetic care,

Upper Extremity Prosthetic Services: Fittings, Programming, Maintenance and Overall Care
Regardless of where you are in the process of receiving prosthetic care, the first step we recommend to our new patients is to schedule an examination with our certified and friendly staff at Celerity Prosthetics.
This initial meeting will reveal a lot of important information which will help our team discover how to best serve you moving forward. This is true even if you already have a prosthetic device. If you already have a prosthetic, we’ll be able to find out what’s working, what isn’t, and what needs attention to regain full motion and functionality.
At Celerity, we specialize in providing the latest prosthetic technology, including for custom fittings. Sometimes our bodies change and new fittings are needed; we can help with this too. If you opt for a custom prosthetic, you’ll participate in our fitting process which will shape the prosthetic device to fit your upper extremity comfortably and with optimal functionality.
We also provide maintenance and repairs for your already existing prosthetic. Our maintenance services are extremely rigorous—we inspect the artificial limb in detail and test all components. Adjustments or component replacements are made as required to ensure that the device is providing a full range of motion and functionality once again.
At Celerity Prosthetics, we pay special attention to the process of training and programming your upper extremity prosthetic for reasons which we’ll discuss below.
Why Getting Flexation Right is so Important for Upper Extremity Prosthetic Care
The process of training and programming a prosthetic device is key for flexation, the process by which the prosthetic responds to your input.
Regardless of the type of prosthetic you have (or receive from us), including both myo-electric and conventional body power prosthetics, we have a great deal of experience in training the upper extremities of our patients to make sure that the device provides not only full motion, but flexation (such as gripping) through programming the prosthetic device appropriately. This fine-tuning can have dramatic results on overall performance.
Lower Extremity Prosthetics: Fittings, AK/BK Maintenance, and Overall Care
Whether you need to be fitted for your first prosthetic or you need help maintaining, repairing, or re-fitting your already existing lower extremity prosthetic, our team at Celerity Prosthetics is here to help.
If it’s your first time visiting with us for a new prosthetic, we begin by performing an initial evaluation and discuss your needs. Once we have determined what will best suit your needs, we will then take a cast of the residual limb. We will modify the mold, fabricate a test socket and fit the socket to the individual. Once we have achieved a good fit and alignment we will then transfer the prosthesis to the light weight laminated design. The individual can choose to add graphics or colors to the the socket as well as a shape and cover to resemble the sound side limb. The ultimate goal is to provide the client functionality, and comfort. Our custom fit prosthesis are designed to shape the artificial limb to your body, which not only increases function, but—crucially—comfort as well.
At Celerity, we service both above the knee and below the knee (AK and BK) prosthetics. Regardless of your needs, our team will treat you with compassion and professionalism.
