Frequently asked questions


WHAT IS A PROSTHESIS MADE OF?

Contemporary prostheses are made of a socket, a socket interface and modular components. The socket is the part of the device that fits to the wearer and is usually made from a composite material including fiberglass. A socket interface can be made from high-density foam, silicone or polyurethane. Modular components are selected to meet the activity level of the wearer and can incorporate titanium, aluminium, carbon fiber to name a few.  


HOW IS THE PROSTHETIC FITTED?

A prosthetic is made over a series of outpatient appointments that range between 1 and 3 hours. These appointments include an initial consultation to discuss your options and treatment plan, a casting session, prototype fitting, and final fitting and instruction session.


HOW IS THE PROSTHETIC ATTACHED?

A prosthetic is applied and removed daily to keep tissues healthy and happy. There are different methods of attachment and we determine the right one for you based on assessment after the first consultation. Options include bone anchored implants, using existing anatomy to anchor the prosthetic, mechanical locking system or vacuum systems.


DID YOU SAY 'BONE ANCHORED IMPLANTS'? 

Yes! Bones anchored implants (or osseointegration) involves titanium implants surgically placed into the bone. After a healing period the prosthetic is engineered to interface with these implants via clips resulting in a removable prosthetic. This type of retention involves a multidisciplinary team approach involving collaboration between surgeons, prosthetists and supporting health care staff. Contact us to find out more.


WHAT DOES IT COST?

Cost varies and is dependent on the type of prosthetic, your activity level and method of attachment. Public and private patients have different levels of cover. Contact us to find out more.


HOW LONG WILL A PROSTHETIC LAST?

The life of a prosthesis is dependent on how it is used, stored (we have heard the words "My dog ate my prosthetic!"), and cared for, the location and materials of the prosthetic, and whether anatomy undergoes any changes (i.e. healing or further surgery). Generally a prosthetic will last between 18 months and three years and on many occasions for longer. We guarantee our material and workmanship for 12 months.


HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT AFTER SURGERY ?

We can start making your prosthetic once full healing has occurred and all swelling has subsided. Your treating doctor can let us know when you are ready.  Contact us to find out more.


CAN I BE LIKE THE BIONIC MAN?

Well, we'll have to talk about that...
