Prosthetic Services

Prosthetics is the design, fabrication and fitting of custom-made artificial limbs or other assistive devices for patients who have lost limbs as a result of traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, diabetes, cancer or congenital disorders. These devices restore, as completely as possible, the function and appearance of a full or partial missing limb.

Prosthetic Services at Limbcare
A prosthetist is a health care professional who is responsible for the care of an individual with partial or total absence of a limb. They are responsible for:
  • Assessing the needs of the prosthetic user.
  • Selecting the most appropriate type of prosthesis.
  • Capturing data required to fabricate a prosthesis, including molds and measurements.
  • Fitting and aligning a prosthesis to the users specific requirements.
  • Educating the user on care and wear of their prosthesis.
  • Reviewing the user and maintaining the prosthesis.
Because no two people are alike, the fabrication of prostheses is an intricate, custom procedure requiring a high degree of skill combined with sophisticated technology.

We are here to listen to you, consult with you, and then tailor prosthetic care to your individual needs and goals. Limbcare offers every patient personalized service close to home.
