Emerson Bearing creates prosthetics department

Emerson Bearing recently announced it has added a prosthetics department within its robotics and automation division.

Emerson Bearing’s prosthetics team will help clients determine which bearing technologies would be most suitable for a given prosthesis, by considering the specifications, recommendations, maintenance strategies, fatigue life and wear resistance of the bearing.

 “As a Boston-based company, the senseless tragedy at the Boston Marathon really hit home, with the bombing being but a few short miles from our headquarters,” Steve Katz, president of Emerson Bearing, stated in a press release. “The creation of the prosthetics division gives us a great opportunity to serve many of those victims who received their prosthetic limbs from our client, BiOM, not to mention the wounded veterans from the last dozen years of conflict overseas.”
