Prosthetics
 
What is a Prosthetic?
An artifical extension that replaces a missing body part. It is part of the field of biomechatronics, the science of fusing mechanical devices with human muscle, skeleton, and nervous systems to assist or enhance motor control lost by trauma, disease, or defect. Prostheses are typically used to replace parts lost by injury or missing from birth  or to supplement defective body parts.
 
What is a Prosthetist?
According to the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics, inc. is a person who measures, designs, fabricates, fits, or services a prosthesis as prescribed by a licensed physician. Our Prosthetist has been certified to fit prostheses to residual limbs of the upper and lower extremities. Prosthetists are important in the rehabiliation process and work together with the patient, physical therapist and occupational therapist and physicians to ensure the patient's progresses toward recovery
Our Prosthetists meet the high standares set forth by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics, (ABC). Our practitioners take extra pride in educating and encouraging patients to be active in the development of the prosthesis.
 
What does a prosthetic fitting involve?
The fitting of lower extremity proshteses, for example, involves making a socket that fits the residuum as a first step. The socket is usually manufactured by glass or carbon fiber infused with acrylic resin or from thermoplastics over a positive model of the residuum. The socket is connected to a foot or ankle assembly and in the case of above knee amputation, an artifical knee. The connecting components are usually in aluminum tube with two part pyramid alignment devises on at each end. One of the devices connects to the ankle and other the other to the socket. They allow the foot to be placed in proper position to support the persons weight with the least possible lateral forces acting through the system. Prostheses are alighned with the client walking, while the prosthetist observes the gait and corrects for any deviations from optimized movement when the leg is in the air and for its position at heel strike and toe off
