About the Oregon Artificial Limb Company
Over 100 years of experience providing prosthetics and orthotics to the Portland community.
Founded in 1906
All the way from the Spanish Flu of 1918 through to today’s COVID19 pandemic, Oregon Artificial Limb Company has remained open to serve the community.
The longevity of our business shows the quality of our work, our adaptability to the changing times, and most importantly, the trust we have cultivated with our clients over decades.
Some of our first patients were actually veterans of the Civil War, and we’ve had a long history of service to our nation’s veterans since.
Honoring our history
Our previous president, Louis Salovich, provided prosthetic care at OAL for over 50 years.
A veteran of the Korean War, Mr. Salovich lost his leg in the final battle for Pork Chop Hill in 1953 when the bunker he was stationed in took a direct hit from enemy mortars.
Before his service in the war, Mr. Salovich was a rodeo enthusiast, a pastime he was joyously able to continue after the war with his prosthetic leg, even winning several professional competitions.
Our current president since 2006 and daughter of the late Louis Salovich, Diane Daybreak is committed– with unswerving dedication– to continuing OAL’s century-long devotion to superior patient care and service.
