Prosthetic Fitting and Training
A prosthetist will apply various techniques from 3D scanning to handcrafted custom molds to determine the perfect prosthetic that best fits your body. This takes place about four to six weeks after amputation surgery to allow your skin enough time to heal.
After amputation, the residual limb changes shape and size until its completely healed. This may initially necessitate multiple changes to the pressure or alignment of your prosthetic limb every few months for the perfect fit and function.
We also recommend the highest level of hygiene to keep the liner worn over the residual limb fresh. We will also train you on how to clean and protect your skin since it shouldn’t be too wet or too dry beneath the prosthetic. Our specialists will also train you on how to avoid muscle injuries in healthier body parts opposite of the amputation.
