What Is a Prosthesis?
Prosthetics involve the use of artificial limbs (prostheses) to restore function, mobility, and/or body image. The prosthesis must be a unique combination of appropriate materials, alignment, design, and construction to match the functional needs of the individual.
Understanding the Functioning of an Artificial Limb
An artificial prosthesis works with the help of numerous cables that are installed to replicate muscular stimulation. At Hager Orthopaedic Clinics Ltd. we work with clients of all activity levels and ages and have experience making prostheses for all amputation levels, including:
Trans-tibial (below knee)
Trans-femoral (above knee)
Trans-radial (below elbow)
Trans-humeral (above elbow)
Our prosthetists keep up-to-date with the latest advances in prosthetic technology.
Caring for Your Prosthetics
It is important to take good care of your prosthetic limb. Keeping it clean and hygienic at all times makes it last much longer and work more efficiently. Following proper cleaning and sanitizing your prosthetic limb regularly saves you from large expenses related to its replacement and repair. Avoid cleaning it with any kind of chemical cleaning substance, as it can corrode the metal and cause irreversible damage. Your prosthetic limb may not support strenuous activity. So, it’s important to take care of the amount of physical activity that your limb can handle. If your limb is not designed for use in water, do not use it in water. There is nothing that can damage a limb more than negligent usage. For more information on our services, read the FAQs.
