We are proud to provide high-quality custom prostheses to our customers using trusted prosthetic and orthotic manufacturing materials and the latest technology.
My name is Art Gagné, and I am a certified prosthetist and orthotist, licensed in Florida, with experience in fabrication, material science and developing new fabrication techniques and tooling.
While enlisted and serving in the United States Air Force, I learned “attention to detail”, as it had been drilled into me. Being a perfectionist made the transition easier! I became interested in the orthotics and prosthetics (O&P) field while on active duty. Once I completed my enlistment, I began working part-time at the local “Brace and Limb” shop while completing prerequisites for a practitioner program. I adapted quickly and learned immensely while working closely with my mentor. This prepared me for the curriculum at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.
Following my studies, I relocated to west-central Florida for my prosthetic residency, where I became certified in prosthetics in 2005. I then moved to another local facility, where I completed my orthotics residency, becoming certified in both orthotics and prosthetics in 2007. Throughout this entire journey, the inventor within me began to document my ideas, sketch concepts and file them away. When the files came to light once again , I realized I desperately wanted to address and pursue my own business goals. I am happily focused 100% on my new endeavor while being cognizant of our patients’ needs.
At Alchemy Composites, we are proud to offer high-quality prosthesis fabrication to our customers and amputees who want to regain their independence. We look forward to assisting you.
