Adaptation Of The Prosthesis

A certified prosthetist designed the interface (consisting of the shaft and frame) and increase it by hand. The fit of the interface, in particular the shaft, is crucial to a good prosthesis – much more important than the technical functions of the prosthesis. If the interface fits well and is comfortable, has helped the patient well with it, even if the components may not be optimal. If the interface is not convenient or inconvenient, success is unlikely, even if the patient is still so motivated and the components are so refined.

(See also Overview of arm and leg prosthetics.) A certified prosthetist designed the interface (consisting of shaft and frame) and increase it by hand. The fit of the interface, in particular the shaft, is crucial to a good prosthesis – much more important than the technical functions of the prosthesis. If the interface fits well and is comfortable, has helped the patient well with it, even if the components may not be optimal. If the interface is not convenient or inconvenient, success is unlikely, even if the patient is still so motivated and the components are so refined. The shaft should be designed so that the pressure and weight load be distributed optimally. This design increases comfort, provides the greatest control over the prosthesis and helps to prevent the remaining limb (skin, bones and nerves) is violated. The prosthesis should fit like a glove, with just the right suction force to anchor the prosthesis firmly in the shaft. The constant movement of the residual limb against the stem may rub against the skin and injured. Pressure-tolerant and pressure-sensitive areas after amputation. Pressure-tolerant and pressure-sensitive areas after leg amputation. Traditional prostheses were prepared by a plaster cast of the residual limb was taken. Now laser scanning, computer assisted design and manufacturing tools are used. This method is comfortable and convenient. but it is not sure which method brings the best results. The method used may depend on the preference and training of prosthodontist. Once the shaft is adjusted, the prosthetist connects the respective components at the interface together and aligns them so that the patient can use it safely and efficiently.
