Above and Beyond Orthopedics is a certified prosthetics and orthopedics business. Located in Downtown, in the heart of the city, they provide durable medical equipment, prosthetic and orthotic services. The company accepts most major health insurances for services provided.

What’s their idea?
Purchase an electric convection oven to allow for in-house prosthetic fabrication. This would allow for shorter turn-around times on delivering devices to Above and Beyond’s patients. It would also eliminate shipping costs for fabrication from out-sourcing, eliminate sub-contracting fabrication, and enable the business to hire a part-time prosthetic/orthotic technician.

How would this investment benefit the business, their neighborhood, and the city?
This investment will expand Above and Beyond Orthopedics’ customer base with a residual effect on profit and enable the business to employ Detroit residents. The community will benefit from an increased sensitivity to the disabled population, allowing for individuals who are disabled to benefit from Above and Beyond’s overall services.
