There are several types of dentures, including:
This will always be made individually so that it is adapted to your body as best as possible. What the prosthesis should look like and what functions it should have depends on your prerequisites and activity level.
If you have amputated below the knee so that you still have your own knee joint, the prosthesis is attached to your leg. If you are amputated above or in the knee, the prosthetic sleeve will have an artificial knee joint and be attached to the thigh.
When the prosthesis replaces an important function, OCH Orthopedics can make a conventional prosthesis that is controlled by means of wires or an electrical prosthesis where the movements are controlled by electrodes. If the arm prosthesis is for purely cosmetic reasons, OCH Orthopedics will place emphasis on making it as pretty as possible, and with the lowest possible weight.
When ordinary prostheses do not work well enough, AND Orthopedics can make a special prosthesis. For example, it could be a ski pole prosthesis that must be more flexible than a regular prosthesis, or a prosthesis for running and swimming.
If you have not had a prosthesis before, or need a new one that is better adapted, you are welcome to a consultation. OCH Ortopedi has extensive experience in the development and adaptation of prostheses and is concerned with finding the solution that is best for you and your situation.
