What to Expect
The first appointment with me would consist of an assessment and discussion of what the client expects from the new device.
Arrangements for an ADP clinic will also be done at this appointment. Depending on the device, we would probably take an impression of the remaining limb at this time.
Within two weeks a diagnostic socket would be assessed with the client. For lower extremity patients, this is usually a dynamic socket with a walking trial. Upper extremity patients, this is a mock up device to determine length and function of the components chosen.
The final device is produced from this diagnostic socket and can be done with custom graphics (http://fredslegs.com) or of a colour matching the client’s skin tone. This device may be taken for a home trial before putting all the finishing on if necessary. When the final prosthetic device is finished, follow-up appointments are booked to see how the device is functioning and how the client is doing with the new device.
