Bionic Prosthetics & Orthotics, with offices in Illinois and Indiana, has welcomed two new residents to its practice.
Rachel Kaltner has joined Bionic P&O’s Michigan City, Indiana, patient care facility as a prosthetics resident. Kaltner is a graduate of Eastern Michigan University, where she earned a master of science in P&O. She recently completed her orthotics residency at the University of Michigan Orthotics and Prosthetics Center and plans to take her orthotics certification exams from the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics this winter.
Samantha Wadge has joined Bionic P&O’s Tinley Park, Illinois, patient care facility as an orthotics resident. She will also be participating in orthopedic clinics through its Merrillville, Indiana, location. Wadge earned a master of science degree in P&O from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2015, and a bachelor of science degree in biomedical engineering from The Ohio State University in 2013. After completing her orthotics residency, she plans to pursue a prosthetics residency.
“We are excited to have these new residents at our practice, where they will have exposure to a wide range of patients with orthotic and prosthetic needs, and access to the latest technology and clinical expertise with our experienced team. We intend to make this program a valuable, educational, and enjoyable one for our residents,” said Vikram Choudhary, CP, clinical director at the Bionic Group.
