For the past 23 years, Brandon Sampson has focused on providing creative solutions for both upper and lower extremity prosthetics, combining art and innovation to meet the functional goals of people with limb loss. There is nothing he loves more than seeing people with whom he works turn the tragedy of limb loss into the start of a beautiful new life.
Brandon has been repeatedly recognized for his professional and artistic innovation. He received a Medal of Honor in 2016 from the mayor of Rochester, Minnesota, for “innovation in industry.” Limb Lab received a Eureka! Innovation Award from the Minneapolis/ St. Paul Business Journal in 2017. He was recently selected by the editorial staff of Twin Cities Business Magazine as one of “100 People to Know in 2020.” And, for his work as the lead singer/ songwriter for his band of over 20 years, Six Mile Grove, he was named the Rochester Post-Bulletin’s “Arts Person of the Year” in 2016 and received an Ardee Award from the Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust as “Outstanding Artist” in 2018.
He graduated with a degree in Biology from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and with a Certificate in Prosthetics from Century College in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
