Art Ross, one of Dankmeyer’s talented Fabrication Technicians, is a very creative guy. In addition to the magic he works when fabricating prostheses and orthoses, he is the mastermind behind 3DPO, directional signs inside the Linthicum office, some of our website and newsletter graphics and his famous chicken costumes. He is also well known around the office for his tongue-in-cheek foot shell designs.
You may remember when Art competed in the Orthotic & Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF) foot shell decorating contest a few years ago. The OPAF and The First Clinic's Feet First annual contest challenges people in our field to take a prosthetic foot shell and decorate it any way they want. The winners are determined by a popular vote. It is an event that allows us to be creative and to be encouraged by the creativity of others. This year Art decided to give it another go.
Congratulations to all those who submitted entries, but a special shout out to our own Art Ross for winning second place with his ToeTruck!
