About Us

Maine Orthotic & Prosthetic Rehab Services, also known as Maine Orthotics and Prosthetics, was founded in 1983 by Ken Perkins. 

“I worked at Maine Medical Center as a physical therapist for several years. During that time I also attended several "brace clinics" held weekly at the hospital. I became interested in the synergy that existed between the two fields and decided to go back to school and study in the fields of Orthotics and Prosthetics. I began to dream of creating a business that blended the common roles that these fields had in helping people to overcome physical challenges that life presents to many people. Maine Orthotic was created and has grown into the organization we have now.”

Maine Orthotics & Prosthetics specializes in upper and lower extremity prosthetics and orthotics for adults and children. Our certified orthotists and prosthetists fit and fabricate custom prosthetic and orthotic devices on site in our Portland office. They are assisted by our experienced technicians, who use state of the art equipment and techniques to the build the highest quality devices possible. We are accredited by the American Board for Certification (ABC) in orthotics, prosthetics & pedorthics. ABC sets the highest standards for quality of care in our industry.

Our approach is grounded by an in depth understanding of human biomechanics and enhanced by a high level of innovation and technological advancement.
