Jack Nevills LPO, licensed prosthetist and orthotist is the current owner of Artificial Limb & Brace Center.

In 1993, Jack had a motorcycle accident which resulted in many serious injuries, including an amputation of his right leg below the knee. After being poorly fit for several years, he came to Artificial Limb & Brace Center in search of a comfortable prosthetic fitting. Tom Arnold of Artificial Limb & Brace Center fit him with the jelly liner. After being impressed by the fit of this device, he wished to gain more knowledge in the orthotic and prosthetic field. He was soon employed by Artificial Limb & Brace Center. Since his employment, he has received multiple credentials including: a state license, American Board of Certification as a certified prosthetist, and BOC licensed prosthetist and orthotist.

After being with the company for over 10 years, he is now the owner and operator. He carries on the same values, understanding and principles that Artificial Limb & Brace Center has been known for since 1988.

The founder of the Artificial Limb & Brace Center, Tom Arnold, is an amputee himself. Tom underwent the amputation of his left leg as a result of a motorcycle accident at the age of 17. He earned his B.S. in business from the University of Alabama in 1976 and then completed the Prosthetic and Orthotic Certification Program at UCLA. His credentials include certification by the American Board of Certification, (ABC).

In 1988, after recognizing the need for more and better prosthetic services in the area, Tom stepped in to fill that need, establishing the Artificial Limb & Brace Center in Anniston, Alabama.

“It’s always been my policy to use my own experience and understanding of the problems facing amputees like myself. Helping an amputee stand and walk on his own again, restoring his independence…That’s the real pay for me!”
