COVID-19 UPDATE



To our Hi-Tech Artificial Limbs family about COVID-19,

We, at Hi-Tech, want to sincerely thank you for trusting us to take care of your prosthetic needs. We are committed to your safety and well-being, as well as our staff, as we face the challenge of responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people who have been impacted by this unprecedented event. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily, and are taking the appropriate measures recommended by the CDC to promote positive health efforts, limit viral exposure, and protect at-risk populations.


We encourage everyone to stay informed and follow the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and your local health agencies. Follow the advice for protecting yourself and others: Wash your hands often with soap and/or alcohol-based sanitizers; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough; stay home when you’re sick; and seek medical attention if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing.


At Our Office


We have always held cleanliness and sanitation to a high standard within our clinic. As an added precaution, we have implemented a more stringent process of cleaning and disinfecting in order to maintain a healthy environment. Daily, our staff is taking preventive measures to help stop the spread of the virus, including but not limited to: washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, sanitizing treatment rooms and common areas, avoiding contact with others who are sick, and staying home if sick.


We will be adjusting the way we schedule appointments in order to minimize crowding in the waiting room. This will help limit your time to be around other people and avoid social contact with other patients.


If you are unable to keep your appointment or are concerned in any way about your appointment, please call our office.


Prior to Your Appointment


For the safety of our patients and our staff, please call to reschedule your appointment if you have: (1) a fever, cough and/or difficulty breathing; (2) traveled to or had close contact with someone who has traveled to high risk countries; or (3) tested positive for or been exposed to someone with COVID-19.


Appointment Check-In


We ask that you only bring necessary caretakers or family members to your appointment, in order to help decrease any risk and minimize contact. Upon arriving in our office, please sanitize your hands, by washing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer.


Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation. It is our top priority to maintain the highest level of care for our patients as well as your safety while keeping our focus where it belongs: You, our valued patients.


Tori McClanahan,

Vice President

Hi-Tech Artificial Limbs, Inc.
