Loosening Of The Prosthesis

Sometimes a prosthesis becoming loose during wear. The cause may be a malfunction of a portion of the prosthesis. The one-way valve on the shaft, which functions like a seal may be leaking, which ensures that the prosthesis does not last longer as well. Or other parts fail their service, for. B. the belt, resulting in a loss of the suction force, and thus the adhesion.

(See also Overview of arm and leg prosthetics.) Sometimes a prosthesis loosens during wear. The cause may be a malfunction of a portion of the prosthesis. The one-way valve on the shaft, which functions like a seal may be leaking, which ensures that the prosthesis does not last longer as well. Or other parts fail their service, for. B. the belt, resulting in a loss of the suction force, and thus the adhesion. The suction force may also be impaired, that the remaining limb shrinks, the patient has lost weight or the liner is not thick enough. If the suction power is lost, the patient must put the prosthesis in order again to put back where they need to ensure that it is applied correctly. If the problem persists, they should contact their prosthetist to solve the problem.
