    Dan gained his experience in prosthetics while working for Otto Bock Healthcare under the supervision and instruction of Eric Hoidahl in the specialty prosthetics lab. As Eric's apprentice, Dan's extensive exposure to the various elements of hips and specialty lower extremity, gained him a reputation second to Eric's. Additionally, Dan spent a portion of his career with Otto Bock cross training in the upper extremity lab, gaining him a reputation for upper extremity myo-electric and body powered prosthetic fabrication. Dan holds an A.A.S. Degree from IPR.

     Eric graduated from Century College​'s O&P Technician Program, then became an ABC certified prosthetic technician. Eric held a lengthy and exceptional career as Prosthetic Technical Specialist with Otto Bock Healthcare. His passion for problem solving at a technical level and helping people was realized through the specialty prosthetic lab at Otto Bock. His extensive experience, work, and innovations with all elements of hip and specialty lower extremity prosthetics, has gained him a reputation for setting many standards, practices, and modern techniques in prosthetic fabrication.
