States requiring an Orthotics and Prosthetics License of a prosthetist

You may not purchase any item from us - FOR the use of another.  You may purchase items for your personal use only and not compete with us (see terms of service) - unless you are a certified prostheticist or any person who is licensed to practice medicine and surgery, dentistry or podiatric medicine by your State.  Some states require an Orthotics and Prosthetics License  (and have been given permission by us to act as an affiliate for re-sell, drop-ship or direct sell to your patient)


These laws are basically consumer protection laws aimed at the prosthetist.  the license laws are there to prevent unknowledgeable people from obtaining improper part that may be used or broken and then using them again, or making component of substandard materials like fiberglass and fiberglass resin - which will off course not only itch but cause medical complications as well. 

We may require that you prove you are the amputee intended for the product being vended to you.
You may not perform prosthetist functions for another person - that is do work them - even for free - in the below mentioned states, however you may work on your own prosthetic without an Orthotics and Prosthetics License anywhere.
Additionally in the following States, prostheticists - must also be licensed in addition to being certified.
