ProCare Prosthetics & Orthotics

At 11 years old, Ali survived the unthinkable: a traumatic electrocution sustained while helping his father. A week following the accident, Ali remained unconscious in the hospital. In an effort to save Ali's life, doctors had to make an emergent decision and amputate both of Ali's arms.

As Ali healed, it became clear to those around him that he deserved the opportunity to restore the upper-extremity mobility he had lost. It was at this juncture that ProCare had the honor to partner with Ali in his journey to recovery.

Ali's case is very unique: his amputation levels are rare, especially bilaterally, and engineering solutions to address his needs presents many challenges. ProCare has significant experience navigating complex cases and shoulder disarticulations.

Through countless hours of research, thoughtful planning, and relying on Ali's feedback to guide the process, ProCare's upper-extremity team developed these state-of-the art devices. Ali's special prostheses provide him with a comfortable fit, control strategy for the devices, and an adjustable design enabling increased functionality and capability.
Thanks to his age and energetic spirit, we know Ali will master many tasks and Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) that were previously impossible as he regains his mobility, one day at a time.

Special thanks to the Persian Cultural Center of Atlanta - Kanoon and Ben Compani, CPA PC, who stood by Ali's side and took it upon themselves to raise ongoing funds for Ali Hatefi Fundraising's current, and continued, medical care. ProCare is honored to work alongside organizations like these to make it possible for incredible people like Ali to live with confidence. Together, we will coordinate international care to keep Ali functional as he grows. We are extremely excited to watch Ali accomplish new goals!
Featured components used are: college park shoulder units touch pads and cables, Ottobock North America Dynamic Arms, Ottobock Bebionic Hands, Ottobock wrist rotator and gloves.
