Our Certified Clinical Anaplastologist, Gina, puts the finishing touches on a below knee prosthetic leg before painting day. We do not use molds to create our lower limb prostheses. We sculpt them by hand out of a unique type of platinum silicone categorized as High Consistency Rubber which is sold by www.factor2.com.
These are the prostheses of one our first and favorite clients! She takes impeccable care of her pieces. You can see over time that the silicone in the older pieces is breaking down and also observe sculptural changes as our techniques have improved over time. The average lifespan of our upper extremity pieces is 2-5
