“My goal is to provide not just a great device for my clients, but an improved quality of life.“
Hello, my name is Sarah Amidon.
I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but headed west at 18 years old to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology. For 13 years, I moved around the west coast and beyond pursuing my career in marine mammal research and animal training. Eventually, I moved back to Minnesota to be near my family and decided it was time to begin a new path. I fell into the O&P field as result of my increasing interest in the human body and biomechanics, as well as a love for working with my hands. I obtained my Masters in Orthotics and Prosthetics. My journey has only enhanced my desire to keep learning, something I feel is key to being successful in the O&P field.
One of the things I truly appreciate about Limb Lab is the thick atmosphere of learning here, whether discovering new technologies or gaining knowledge from our clients on their experiences living with an orthotic or prosthetic device. The conversation is continuous between practitioner and client, which leads to long-term relationships. This field is a combination of art and science. By using both of those approaches, my goal is to provide not just a device for my clients, but an improved quality of life.
