Blatchford’s orthopedic engineers adapt prostheses to the leg or arm. Prostheses are mechanical or technical devices that replace a missing body part.
This is done for functional and / or cosmetic reasons. Regardless of the level of amputation, the prosthesis should function as an extension of the skeleton where surrounding soft parts are utilized for anchoring and power transmission.
In order to be able to choose the right solution for the individual user, it is important to map physical prerequisites, wishes and needs. Such a mapping is performed by the prosthesis team when the user is in for his first prosthesis adaptation after the amputation. At Blatchford Orthopedics, this team consists of a doctor, physiotherapist, nurse and orthopedic engineer.
Common to all types of prostheses is that you usually dress the prosthesis with a soft padding that is ground as similar to the corresponding side as possible, in other words; cosmetics. Some prosthesis users choose not to apply cosmetics to the prosthesis. It is entirely up to each individual.
A prosthesis can be made in a number of variants, and much of the knowledge is about finding the best individual solutions. Experienced prosthesis users gradually become very knowledgeable about their needs and desires. At Blatchford Orthopedics, the focus is on collaboration with the patient from A to Z.
