Logan’s experience includes roles as the division supervisor of prosthetics/orthotics at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, branch manager with Hanger Prosthetics, North American prosthetics manager with CAMP Healthcare in Atlanta, and NOPCO’s clinical coordinator at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Kent Riddle, Mary Free Bed CEO, adds that Logan’s, “experience in this field covers a broad spectrum—patient, practitioner, manufacturer, manager, and educator.”
