Miller earns certification

PARKERSBURG — Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics announces that Alexander Miller has received his certification from the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics (ABC).

Miller is now a certified prosthetic and orthotic assistant working at the Belpre and Parkersburg locations of Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics.

Miller, born and raised in Belpre, is a 2018 graduate from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science, 2014 graduate of Warren Local High School and attended Parkersburg Catholic for several years.

He has been involved in the Prosthetic and Orthotic business since 2013 working part-time at Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics, and later at a similar clinic in Cincinnati, while attending college. Miller has been working full time as a technician and assistant at Miller’s since 2018 and has been taking additional classes for his ABC certification.

He has been training with two practitioners: Mark Miller, his father, who is a certified licensed prosthetist and orthotist, and Sean Greer, a certified licensed orthotist, also working for the company.

He plans to continue his education by pursuing a two-year Master’s Degree in Orthotics & Prosthetics in order to become a certified licensed prosthetic and orthotic practitioner.

“It’s always fun to have one of your own kids come into a family business. Alex is already proving to be an asset to the company and our patients seem to enjoy working with him as well,” Mark Miller said.

“Alex’s technical background starts him head and shoulders above most of his peers. He is becoming a great benefit to the company and the community in the way he takes care of his patients,” Sean Greer said.

Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics provides people with a comfortable and functional fit for artificial limbs, and orthotic braces, supports and pediatric helmets, the company said.

They lead the Prosthetic Users Group of the Mid-Ohio Valley ( PUGMOV.com), own a three-legged certified therapy dog named Keating, are certified visitors through the Amputee Coalition and manage the local Amputee Coalition’s Certified Peer Visitor group for amputees who would like a visit from an individual experienced with limb loss.
