When a patient first arrives at the Rehabilitation Institute they
receive a thorough consultation and evaluation prior to the
development of a custom prosthetic device. The development of an
artificial limb is a tedious process that requires a personalized
approach to obtain a proper, custom fit. The actual process of
creating a prosthetic device entails analysis, plaster casting,
modification, plastic molding, fitting, finishing, and delivery.
Attention must always be focused on the residual limb at the
outset and patient comfort and satisfaction as the outcome.
All patients are special and unique and require a very
personalized approch to healing. Some Patients may want an athletic
prosthetic device to maximize movement, flexibility and strength.
Most patients want the cosmetic prosthetic device, that is
humanizing with symmetry and a normal apperance. In all cases,
the prosthetic device is custom made to an individual's needs,
using the most advanced components, materials, and techniques.
