Artificial limbs/prosthetics

A custom-made, individually fitted technical appliance designed to replace an missing limb in part or in entirety.

The socket for the artificial limb is prepared from a plaster cast taken from the customer's residual limb. The components of the artificial limb are then fitted to the socket.

It is paramount for an artificial hand to appear natural. The covering for the prosthesis (the cosmesis) can be made to match the healthy hand in shape and colour.
