Lower Extremity Prostheses
For patients requiring a lower extremity prosthesis, Advanced Motion Control Inc. can provide custom temporary and definitive prostheses. For new amputations, a patient will be fit with a temporary prosthesis. After wear and use of a temporary prosthesis, a patient may require a full new prosthesis, or a definitive prosthesis.
Our Prosthetist will take you through every step on the way to getting your new prosthesis.
This process includes:
● Evaluation: Examination of the limb, component options, desired activity level and more will be discussed.
● Casting and measuring of the limb
● Fitting a test socket. A socket is the part of the prosthesis that contacts the residual limb. This test socket is made of a material that can be easily adjusted by our Prosthetist in order to find the perfect custom fit for each patient.
● A series of further adjustments and test socket fittings will be had until an optimum fit is achieved.
● Delivery: Once the ideal specifications for your prosthesis are determined, the prosthesis will be finished with a final socket and delivered to the patent.
A new definitive prosthesis is not always required. If the integrity of the components of the prosthesis are still good but a patients limb has significantly changed in shape or size, a socket replacement may be required. Orthotics & Prostheses labs is able to replace the socket component of a prosthesis to restore an optimum fit.
This process, similar to a new prosthesis, consists of measuring and casting the limb and adjusting test sockets until an ideal fit is established. The socket is then finished and attached to the other components of the prosthesis.
