Certified Prosthetist and Orthotist

Meet Andrew.


“I like the pairing of hands-on skills and personal interactions with finding solutions that assist with improving mobility, independence, and quality of life. “



Hello, my name is Andrew Nelson.

Growing up, my neighbor was an Occupational Therapist specializing in hands who encouraged me to look into Orthotics and Prosthetics. I was a Junior at Luther College and thinking of pursuing Physical Therapy, and to be honest, I didn't know much about the orthotic and prosthetic world. I spoke with my Academic Adviser and he pointed me in the direction of Brandon Sampson. I shadowed Brandon for a month, learning about different fabrication techniques and client interactions, and the rest is history. I like the pairing of hands-on skills and personal interactions with finding solutions that assist with improving mobility, independence, and quality of life. As a practitioner, I love to build relationships with clients. The atmosphere here at Limb Lab is very welcoming with an open feel, which helps us to build personal connections, fully understand their needs, and begin each device with an innovative approach; using cutting-edge products combined with client collaboration to develop a device that will best meet their functional goals. I value that we don't just tell clients what they need, but rather, we include them to be part of the solution.
