BiOM bionic ankle
Allen Rasmussen of Gillette, who lost his lower right leg in a mining accident about four years ago, tries out a BiOM bionic ankle under the supervision of Kamil Leman, a prosthetist, on May 14 at Precision Prosthetics in Casper. The computerized ankle allows patients to walk more naturally and with less discomfort than with a conventional prosthesis.

I-limb Quantum fitting
This is our first successful fitting of the i-limb quantum. This prosthetic is available to patients missing one to all five digits on the hand. Each digit on the i-limb quantum has its own motor and is individually articulating. This hand has 36 grip options available. These grip options are controlled by simple gestures, muscle movement, proximity; using “Grip Chips,” as well as an app that can be installed on any smart device. This hand is now available in three different sizes and many different silicone covering options.
A 33-year-old single mother of three children easily rides horses, took a 12-mile ride in Jackson bike ride last summer, and drives without any assistive devices. The difference for Susanna Nagel of Casper is that she lost both legs below knees to the flesh-eating disease known as necrotizing fascilitis.

Defying limits walk/run
Kamil and the entire staff of Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics participated in the very first Defying Limits Walk/Run to raise funds for amputees! Often times insurance covers very little when it comes to losing a limb. All net proceeds went to a non-profit organization that assists with financially helping amputees with medical and limb loss costs. Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics was also one of the sponsors of the event. The event was a huge success, and we are so glad that we could be a part of it!

The love, support, encouragement was overwhelming
August 2016, I made a life altering choice to have my leg amputated. After three days in Wyoming medical and a week plus at Elkhorn Valley Rehab, Alicia my p/t was so kind to introduce me as a favor to Kamil, he was so kind, understanding and excited about working with me. When it came time to start me with a leg we weren’t sure if funding was available. I filled out for Limbs For Life and waited, Kamil was looking at helping me get a leg one way or another. Last week of April I got the news Limbs for Life approved the payment for me. A week later went in and I got fitted and a socket made, Friday I was told come in and get my new leg, I put it on and walked out, only five months after my amputation. The love, support, encouragement was overwhelming, from everyone there, plus Choko the puppy girl always calmed me and greeted me with such love and sweetness. You all gave me my life back and I look forward to new adventures that I couldn’t do with your support.
They are so accommodating
I really appreciate the staff they are so friendly and helpful they always have a smile. If I am ever needing to come to the office early for appointments they are so accommodating since I live out of town. Kamil is a wonderful person he listens to what I have to say and helps with any concerns that I may have in regards to my prosthetic. I enjoy coming into the office and seeing Choko...
On my first visit I knew that this was my home
My name is Thor Stephenson Jr. and I had an emergency amputation of my left leg above the knee in November of 2013 due to an accidental shooting while pheasant hunting. My initial socket that was done elsewhere was not satisfactory and hard to use. I was referred to Precision Prosthetics and Orthotics by another gentleman that had a similar situation happen to him where he was unable to use his prosthetic as well. I went to see Kamil and on my first visit I knew that this was my home and that Kamil would be able to build a great leg for me that I could use for years to come. I now have the ability to do so many things that I could do before my amputation, I never knew that I could do all of this and beyond with a prosthetic leg. This fall I was able to go hunting and harvest a mule deer. Thank you so much Kamil, Kami and Tanya at Precision Prosthetics and Orthotics.
On my first visit I knew that this was my home
When our son broke his arm/elbow, we needed a brace after his cast came off and during his rehabilitation. We were referred to Kamil to make the brace, as no one had a brace that would fit his arm. Kamil made the brace and gave William his choice of color, so he customized the Denver Broncos for our son. The brace was done quickly, was lightweight, and it was easy for our son to manage independently. His movement was restricted as needed, but the brace was easily adjusted when necessary. Kamil and his staff were very friendly, and we would gladly recommend them. -Matt and Dawn S., Casper, WY
I would highly recommend these people
I had a leg before I saw Kamil that had no movement in the knee and was too short. It was very painful to wear. I knew that something had to be done, but I didn’t know where to start. I called Kamil’s office, and they were so nice and helpful. They made you feel at home. Now, I have knee movement, and my leg is at the right length. It doesn’t hurt like before. I would highly recommend these people.
I have always enjoyed outdoor sports: hiking, bicycling, motocycling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing. When I became a below the knee amputee last year, I wondered if I would be able t continue all my sports activities. Now, 16 months after amputation, I can do everything as well as I did before the amputation. The most important thing about a prosthesis is proper fit. Kamil takes the time to observe carefully, and listen to me, and keep at it until it is right. Being an amputee is considerably easier than I had expected. The only thing I could not do with a prosthesis was to drive my manual-transmission car. It was pretty hard to push the clutch all the way down with my big foot, and even harder with a prosthesis. Kamil made me a special driving foot. Now it is easier to drive the car than it was before. Two years ago I started teaching cross-country skiing. I saw that most instructors have a competitive background, and their techniques are intimidating to many beginners. I have always been interested in sports for fun, not for competition. The people I taught appreciated my ability to tailor the lessons to their level. Last winter I continued teaching skiing, both privately and with the Nordic Ski Club. Doing it on a prosthesis didn’t make it any harder. Some people might think ‘If he can do it on one leg I could probably learn to do it’. Cross-country skiing is a very accessible sport. I enjoy the quiet and the closeness to natural beauty. It can be done at any level from easy to very strenuous. Casper has a truly excellent cross-country ski center. If you would like to try cross-country skiing, or if you are concerned that it might be hard to do with a prosthesis or orthosis, please call me at 307-251-3741.
Senator Mike Enzi’s visit to Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics
I wanted to thank you and Vince for taking time out of your day to provide us a tour and briefing of Precision Prosthetics and Orthotics during my recent visit to Casper.
As Ranking Member of the HELP Committee, I work on a wide range of legislative issues concerning healthcare. It is helpful to tour facilities in Wyoming and talk to those who are in the trenches providing vital healthcare services in their communities. That information is very helpful to me when drafting healthcare legislation.
I appreciated having a first-hand look at your business and getting a better understanding of how artificial limbs are made and fitted. You should be very proud of the service you are providing to our state, as well as the work you are doing in Haiti….
Thank you again, Kamil. Diana joins in sending our best wishes to you and continued success.
Sincerely, Michael B. Enzi, United States Senator
PS: As I mentioned, we don’t know the complexities of other people’s jobs unless we see it firsthand – and even then, I know it is just an overview. Wow! Thanks for what you do.
No one believes I have prosthetic legs, I walk so well
Kamil first made shoes for my ulcerated feet in October of 2007. At that time we were staying in Masterson Place and did not have a vehicle, so Kamil drove over to see us and brought the shoes back and forth. After I lost my legs, Kamil made me the best prostheses I have ever seen. They are so comfortable. Now no one believes I have prosthetic legs, I walk so well. Kamil has a good staff at the office—even the dog greets you when you come in! Anyone who wants to see my prostheses, I would be glad to show you. I would recommend Kamil to anyone.
Fits like a surgeon’s rubber glove from sun up to sun down
After 37 years of wearing a below the knee prosthesis, I finally have one that I can walk more than a block without getting a blister or a leg cramp; it fits like a surgeon’s rubber glove from sun up to sun down. I have had numerous prostheses made in many different places in the US of A and none can compete with the one I have now, which was made by Mr. Kamil Leman, CP, of Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics of Casper, Wyoming. It is equipped with the new Harmony E-pulse pump which has an internal movement sensor. It allows the Harmony E-pulse to automatically recognize resting phases and switch itself to the energy saving Low Power mode. In the Low Power mode, the vacuum level will slowly be reduced to a lower level. Any incipient movement or any button pushed will cause the system to automatically reactivate to the user level, which means it will fit like a surgeon’s rubber glove all day long. My legs were made for walking and thanks to Mr. Kamil Leman, CP, I CAN!
Welcome and relaxed
I have been going to Kamil Leman for about 4 years now. I am an above the knee amputee, and Kamil has made such a difference in my progress. He is aware of all my needs and is very open to any suggestions or opinions I have. The staff at Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics is very kind and makes me feel welcome and relaxed every time. I would highly recommend Kamil at Precision Prosthetics & Orthotics to anyone for their prosthetic or orthotic needs.
