For the fourth year in a row, Alltech Prosthetics, located in Burleson, was the only prosthetic company invited to be a part of the sixth annual Warrior 100K bike race (W100K) held at former President George W. Bush’s Crawford Ranch.
Alltech Prosthetics provides upper and lower extremity prosthetics to amputees. April Rector, business development director and co-owner of Alltech Prosthetics, said the company is invited each year to provide prosthetic support for the race.
Remember when medical professionals made house calls? Alltech O & P still does. After being in the orthotics and prosthetics profession in Johnson County for eight years, Alltech realized that many of their patients have a hard time getting around on their own. . . In 2012 they added a mobile van to begin making house calls to see their homebound patients or those in hospitals or rehabilitation centers. Today they have three mobile vehicles in their fleet – and another to come in the next few months. . .
When Alltech O&P Services opened its doors in Johnson County seven years ago to serve people with orthotics and prosthetics, they realized there was an unmet need beyond their normal scope of services.
They found that many women, after a cancer diagnosis and mastectomy, wanted to feel more confident about the way that they looked and felt. What many of them didn’t know was that there was a prosthetic option for them. A breast prosthesis. So, April DeLeon, one of the owners of Alltech O&P Services, did something to help.
Alltech Orthotics & Prosthetics is proud to support Wounded Warriors, and one way they do that is by continuing to sponsor the North Texas Wounded Warrior Charity Golf Tournament — now in its third year this year. Th e event was held Sept. 9 in Southlake. The tournament’s goal is to provide rehabilitative golfi ng experiences to combat-wounded veterans. Each foursome that competes included a wounded warrior. The tournament raises money to provide golf clinics, lessons, equipment and playing opportunities to wounded warriors who are either living in North Texas or who are recovering from their injuries in one of North Texas’s VA facilities.

For three years now, about 20 servicemen and women wounded in the global war on terror join with President George W. Bush for an annual 100-kilometer mountain bike ride. Th is year, Alltech O&P Services was asked to attend as the only prosthetics company to take part in the event. Owner of Alltech O&P Services Jory DeLeon said it was an honor. “We were asked to attend by Pam Jackson, who was in charge of mechanic support for the race,” DeLeon said. “She wanted us to be there in case any of the wounded warriors who were participating the race needed any help with the mechanics of their prostheses.
Alltech Orthotics & Prosthetics announces they’ll be offering a monthly clinic to amputees to offer assistance in their medical care and rehabilitation. April DeLeon, who is one of the owners of Alltech O&P Services, says they are excited to offer this much needed service to amputees, whether they had their amputation years ago or recently. “Amputees at any stage of their rehabilitation are encouraged to attend any of these monthly clinics,” DeLeon said. “The clinics are devoted to amputee care and support as well as prosthetic care.
