We’ve had the pleasure of making this client two realistic prosthetic partial hands since 2010. As a carpenter, he has realized over time that he no longer needs a realistic hand under his glove while at work. This time, he requested we make him a custom sculpted utility hand from High Consistency Rubber (HCR). HCR is an extremely durable platinum silicone that we sculpt by hand with no molds. By using his utility prosthetic hand at work and keeping his realistic prosthesis for evenings and days off, he can extend the life of both pieces.
Whether a client wants an exceptionally realistic prosthesis or something a bit more simple and task oriented, we are happy to provide our clients with the full range of options and are open to changes should those needs evolve over time.
