“I am writing a letter to provide high recommendations for Leimkuehler, Inc., in Cleveland, Ohio. It all started 19 years ago when I was in an accident and lost my right leg above the knee. Bob Leimkuehler and his company was a life saver! He came to the hospital and arrangements were made for me to come see him when my leg was all healed and ready for a prosthesis. Bob called the hospital with concern of my well-being and to answer any questions my husband had about what the next step would be. He was positive and reassuring. They taught me how to walk again! Everyone at Leimkuehler, Inc. is wonderful, compassionate and patient with me. I have been in their care ever since 1995. When new knees, feet or prosthetic styles were available, Leimkeuhler, Inc. made me aware and would fit me with a new part if possible. When in-services’ were provided and they thought I may be interested, a call was made to me to participate. Whenever I am in need of a new skin, prosthesis or an adjustment, Leimkuehler is very accommodating. I feel more than comfortable when I go in to have my leg worked on. The office staff and practitioners and I have a “family” relationship. I will continue a quality of life for many, many years.”
“The Master of Occupational Therapy Program has collaborated with Leimkuehler Inc. Orthotics and Prosthetics for 20 years in providing our occupational therapy students with instruction in working with individuals with amputations and other orthopedic or neuromuscular conditions. Michael Maierson, LCPO has provided lectures and hands on tours of the Detroit Ave. location. He is always engaging, interesting, and informative. The demonstrations of the variety of orthoses and prostheses, teaching our students techniques to don and doff these devices, demonstrations of how to control both conventional and myoelectric prostheses, and showing our students the process of constructing these devices is always well received by our students.
Leimkuehler Inc. has been in business in Cleveland since 1948, and has an excellent reputation. I am especially impressed with the craftsmen and craftswomen employed by this company. It is rare to see the types of devices that can be fabricated by these employees due to their creativity and skill with metal, leather, and thermoplastics. I have seen devices designed for clients with bariatric issues, complicated genetic disorders or birth deformities, and high levels of amputation that are state of the art. We are lucky to have this quality of service for our citizens in Northeast Ohio. I recommend them without any reservations for clients who are in need of orthoses or prostheses. ”

“I am writing this letter in support of Leimkuehler, Inc. Prosthetics and Orthotics. I have become familiar with their services over a period of thirty years in my capacity first as a Physical Therapist, later as Director of Rehabilitation Services, and most recently as Vice President of Operations for Euclid Hospital. I have found them to be technically competent. They are both knowledgeable and innovative and able to offer alternatives in both simple and complex clinical situations. They exhibit a client focus which serves well with both patients and other rehabilitation personnel. This is true for both their professional staff and the office and administrative team who support them. We view Leimkuehler, Inc. as important partners in service to patients with prosthetic or orthotic needs and can recommend their services without reservation.”

“Leimkuehler, Inc. came into my life in 1959 when I became an above the knee amputee. Over the years, Paul, Jon and Bob Leimkuehler as well as two or three other prosthetists have made a number of up-dated prostheses and kept them in working order. For most of the past fifty years, I have not needed to use any assistive aid (other than a cane while recovering form broken bones following a tumble). In fact, they have done such a good job in keeping me mobile that many people had no idea that I was an amputee until they saw me without the prosthesis. Due to other health issues, I now use two Canadian crutches for safety reasons. Leimkuehler, Inc, however, has recently completed a new prosthesis that is a fine match, both in function and appearance, for my own leg and that is important for a 79 year old.”
“As and injured 16 year old black female, I was devastated, to say the least upon loosing my leg below the knee in a car accident to a drunk driver. I thought all was lost and what do I do now? Well, Leimkuehler, Inc. came to my rescue and I have been walking and stepping proudly throughout my life every day since. Leimkuehler, Inc. has been a lifeline for me in more ways than one:
• They helped me keep my self-esteem.
• They restored my faith to survive with pride.
• They developed top grade materials to make my limb more lifelike than ever.
• They helped me to maintain my dignity throughout my career and daily activities.
God Bless You Leimkuehler, Inc.
47 years and running
“When I first became an amputee in 2009 I found out what a life changing condition it would be. I had done some research and thought I would be able to handle it. WRONG. At that time, I found so many people that can help. I was able to find the right people to help me start an amputee support Group. The South West General Hospital C Unit Heart and Vascular Institute helped and continue to back us.
As a group we have speakers and learn so much. I am at the Hospital 3 times a week and meet new amputees. They are so happy to see another amputee just walk in their room.
My first leg company and practitioner does not compare to Jason or Leimkuehler, Inc. It took me some time to decide which company I would see for my new leg....... I met with Jason; he was so knowledgeable and professional. He took time to explain all the aspects of the leg. I was very lucky to get a Plié knee, I am rather active and I try to get to the rec center 3 times a week and walk all over the hospital. When I first came home with the totally new leg I was amazed at how little exertion it took to get to my 2ND floor Condo. (14 steps) Doug from Freedom Innovations was at 2 of my appointments and between him and Jason I had a very great experience. The 3 of us made the entire procedure very enjoyable. I have become secure in walking with my new leg. The comfort level is so much better. Thank you to everyone. I am so glad I came to Leimkuehler, Inc.”
