Prosthetic & Sensory Aids Service (PSAS)

About PSAS

TVHS PSAS is a direct product line of the VA Mid-South Health Care Network (VISN 9). VA Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service (PSAS) is the largest and most comprehensive provider of prosthetic devices and sensory aids in the world. Although the term "prosthetic device" may suggest images of artificial limbs, it actually refers to any device that supports or replaces a body part or function.

PSAS provides a full range of equipment and services to Veterans. These range from items worn by the Veteran, such as an artificial limb or hearing aid; those that improve accessibility, such as ramps and vehicle modifications; to devices surgically placed in the Veteran, such as hips and pacemakers.

To best serve the Veteran population that uses prosthetic appliances, sensory aids, medical equipment and medical supplies we work with an interdisciplinary team from multiple services that includes:

  • Prosthetic Representatives
  • Prosthetic Purchasing Agents
  • Prosthetists
  • Orthotists
  • Amputee Clinic Team
  • Wheelchair Specialty Clinic Team
  • Visual Impairment Service Teams (VIST) coordinators
  • Blind Rehabilitation Specialists
  • Physician/Surgeons/Primary Care Providers
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Therapists
  • Podiatrists
  • Optometrists/Ophthalmologists
