This client traveled to us from out of state. She had three highly realistic prosthetic fingers created as well as a utility hand. Having prostheses made isn’t just about restoring the look of the fingers she lost. These prostheses are about playing with the kids in her family and not feeling like she has to hide her hand so they don’t get concerned. About grabbing keys off of the counter and not dropping them for lack of grip and getting back to her family tradition of bicycling on the weekend. They are about heading to the gym with friends and not being afraid to pick up weights, going a full workday without the pain of bumping the sensitive amputation site, and so much more. Each person’s life is impacted differently by their amputation. Our goal is to listen to our clients’ needs and help them get back as many of the things that amputation has taken from them as we can.
This prosthetic nose tip weighs less than a gram. Although very small, it covers a permanent scar and restores lost form from an injury in the center of this client’s face. In spite of its small size, pieces like this can make a large difference in a person’s social confidence.
This client has a very demanding career with long hours. She wanted to have a prosthesis that would allow her to feel confident with her feet up, soaking in the sun. She is getting the rare opportunity to take a vacation tomorrow and we are so excited that she can take her new prosthesis along!
This client has been a wearer of stock prosthetic hands for many years. She works in a very competitive field and expressed that investing in a highly realistic prosthesis would help her to look and feel more professional.
Our primary goal is to create a prosthesis that truly satisfies each of our clients and it is always great to hear feedback after they have taken it home. Some of our clients prefer to have a second or “back-up” prosthesis in the event something should happen to one. We created an ear for this…
This young woman enjoys expressing her artistic side through clothing. Her self confidence was hampered by a serious injury to her arm and partial hand loss. With her new prosthesis, she is able to turn the focus back to her style, her art and the things that characterize her.
