Amputee Guide to Proper Fit
Becoming educated about prosthetics and how your prosthesis works is vital to life after amputation.
Perhaps the most important aspect of prosthetics is fit. An optimum fit should help you meet your goals, be completely comfortable, and provide you with total control.
Prostheses come in a variety of styles, and your goals impact which type of prosthesis is best for you. A professional swimmer would require different elements than someone who simply wants to be able to keep up with their children. We understand the importance of maintaining a high quality of life and continued mobility. We are here to ensure you can continue to take part in the activities you engaged in before your amputation.
