R. Tracy Duce
In 1989, Tracy returned to his roots in Southern Alberta after spending most of his earlier years in the Calgary area. After completing a degree in Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and going through multiple knee surgeries due to a football injury, he became interested in the field of prosthetics and orthotics and soon began the program at BCIT. He graduated from BCIT Magna Cum Laude, and after completing residency in Calgary, joined Lethbridge Orthotics. Tracy has been certified in Orthotics since 1991 and Prosthetics since 1997. He lends his expertise in Orthotics to the extra special needs of children. After 8 knee surgeries Tracy has extensive experience in elite level knee braces and has been an industry pioneer in developing the cutting edge methodologies of Lethbridge Orthotics. Due to his background and continued participation in rodeo, Tracy has also developed an elbow brace used by most of the top professional rough stock riders in the world. Over the years Professional Cowboys, an NHL Player, and many University athletes have come to him to get the right brace to keep them performing at an elite level.
