Types of Leg Prosthetics Options We Provide
There are different types of lower limb prosthetics depending on where the amputation occurred. We’ve outlined the types of prosthetics that we offer below.
- Free Consultation
The first step in getting a prosthetic leg is to schedule an initial consultation. This allows us to ensure we have the right products that you’ll need for your physical rehabilitation process.
- First Appointment and Measurements
If the initial consultation goes well, we will then schedule your first appointment where we will learn more about your medical history and discuss your goals. During this time, we’ll take measurements to fabricate your device.
Administrative steps: We’ll verify your insurance coverage and work with your doctor to create a prescription based on the device and services that you require. For a new prosthesis or maintenance to an existing prosthesis, your insurance company is billed.
- Prosthetics Fabrication
Next comes the process of making custom leg prosthetics. We use the measurements from your previous appointment to order the components. Once they arrive, it takes 2-3 days for our team to construct the prosthetic.
- Fit, Delivery & Socket Fabrication
Nothing is more important to us than making sure that your prosthetic is comfortable for you! During this fitting appointment, your prosthetist will also assemble your direct socket system.
We are also ready to help you with your existing socket. The problem of a poor fit of the socket is not so rare. No matter whether it is a new socket or an already used one, we are always constantly geared up to assist you with software updates and calibration.
- Progress Tracking and Follow Up
One of the most important steps in leg prosthetics is progress tracking and follow-up. These additional appointments allow us to make adjustments to the fit of your prosthesis at regular intervals and address any issues about functionality.
