New East Haven prosthetics business hoping to offer patients ‘a sense of life back’

EAST HAVEN – David Mahler has worked with orthotics and prosthetics since 1998 but recently decided it was time to open his own business.

Mahler, who said he has always been an owner at heart, took the leap and opened AFI Orthotics and Prothetics at 65 North Frontage Road in East Haven.

AFI stands for advocate, fabricate and inspire, all of which Mahler said he does for his patients. Mahler and his staff advocate for patients with insurance companies, fabricate prosthetics in-house and hope to inspire patients when they get to talk to each other and learn about their experiences, he said.
