Preparing For a Prosthesis

Losing a limb can be a painful and trying experience, but starting your rehabilitation as soon as possible is one of the best things you can do to recover – both physically and emotionally.

About Prostheses

A prosthesis, or a prosthetic, is an artificial device created to replace the limb that you’ve lost. This device is comprised of different parts that work together to help you perform daily activities such as eating, walking, and dressing.

Each prosthetic limb is custom-built to suit your unique needs. If you’re getting a prosthesis, you’ll be working with a prosthetist throughout the process. A prosthetist is a healthcare professional who specializes in the making and fitting of prosthetic limbs.

Preparing in Advance

Getting a prosthesis and ensuring the right fit requires several steps. Speaking with a prosthetist early-on means having an opportunity to address possible concerns and expectations.

During the early stage of designing and creating your prosthesis, the prosthetist will ask you questions about your previous work, activities, and recreation. This information will guide them in the development of a prosthesis that will suit your lifestyle and functionality.
