Willmar orthotics fabrication business is unique for small city


WILLMAR -- In 2004, Lori Henrikson of Benson developed Charcot's foot, a complication of diabetes that leads to weakening of the bones and fractures in the foot. In most cases, the problem affects only one foot.

Henrikson needed a brace to prevent further dislocation of the bones in her left foot. She might have had to drive to St. Cloud or the Twin Cities to obtain an orthotic device, but got what she needed closer to home at Hagen Orthotics & Prosthetics Inc. in Willmar.
