A prostheses is a medical device that replaces an absent body part. CURE does prostheses fabrication from high-quality materials which guarantees better outcomes and longevity of products. These devices are also reasonably priced making our products to be very competitive in the market.
Our workshop team offers a comprehensive prosthesis fabrication service for all patients who have absent limbs (whole or part) and need a prosthesis. Measurements are taken for the missing limb. The devise is fabricated and then fitting is done. Clients are taught how to use and take care of their new prostheses. So far, we have fabricated several thousands of prostheses leading to satisfied clients.
Patients may have a limb part missing for many reasons. The commonest is a vascular disease (poor circulation), and the some of patients seen have other diseases such as diabetes.
Some patients are seen before amputation to discuss the best surgical approach but most are first seen after amputation, usually at about 4-6 weeks once the wounds have healed well.
The service is primarily run on an outpatient / day patient basis, but patients with very complex problems can be admitted if necessary.
Once a patient has a prosthesis they may return at any time if problems arise with or in relation to the prosthesis. Usually, these problems are managed and resolved by the prosthesis.
Prosthesis fabrication service also covers other problems arising from amputation. The commonest single problem is pain felt in the amputated limb, so-called ‘phantom pain’. Other problems include the breakdown of the wound, emotional distress, and practical problems with daily activities.
Prosthesis fabrication service liaises closely with many other people, including primary care teams, specialist pain clinics, local physiotherapy services, surgeons, and social services.
CURE has partnered with a like-minded organizations such as The Limb Kind Foundation and Ottobock to enhance consistency in providing good quality and affordable devices for our clients.
