Alabama Artificial Limb & Orthopedic Service, Inc. is the product of a merger of two exceptional companies, Alabama Artificial Limb Company and Orthopedic Service Company of Montgomery, AL, both rich with tradition, experience and family. Operating under one roof has given the company much strength, as patients continue to benefit from more than sixty years of experience and expertise from our practitioners. AALOS has added full-time facilities in Opelika, Alabama, Selma, Alabama, and Dothan, Alabama, and now specializes in custom, pre-fabricated pedorthic devices, and post-mastectomy forms and accessories. As the art and science of prosthetics and orthotics has continued to advance, so too have the professionals at AALOS, adapting to new technologies and techniques over the last 6 decades.
Founders, Alfred G. Latimer (Al) and Daniel J. Seals (Joe) built the company on progressing technologies and personal experience, as Joe had been a below knee amputee since he was eighteen months old. Together, they developed an overall philosophy at Alabama Artificial Limb & Orthopedic Service, Inc, of offering a team-related approach to rehabilitation and combining professional services with those of other allied health professionals.
Today, the company is operated by Al’s grandson, Glenn Crumpton, C.P.O., C.Ped. He continues to place a high emphasis on continuing education in order to stay at the forefront of the ever-changing world of prosthetics and orthotics.
