Why ALOC-V

Established in June 2007, American Limb and Orthopedic Company of Valparaiso (ALOC-V) is owned and managed by ABC & BOC Board Certified orthotist and prosthetist, Dagny Laur.

ALOC-V is proud to provide the full range of treatments for individuals who have suffered debilitating illnesses and injuries. Our commitment to state-of-the-art technology has kept us in the forefront of orthotic and prosthetic care. Successful treatment depends on many factors, but an important consideration is the knowledge, skill and experience of our practitioners and the ongoing relationship that is established with the patient and the rehabilitation team.

ALOC-V employs only American Board for Certification (ABC) and Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) certified practitioners. ALOC-V orthotists and prosthetists work closely with the physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, nurse and family to ensure progress towards recovery and rehabilitation. Through assessment of the patient’s functional status—physical examination, medical history and rehabilitation goals—the appropriate orthotic and/or prosthetic treatment plan can be derived to achieve the greatest level of mobility, comfort and function possible.
