Hand & Partial Hand Prosthetics

Prosthetic hands can be custom-fitted with grips for sports equipment and special features such as tactile sensors and multi-finger articulation to enhance movement precision.

Custom Direct Prosthetic Socket System for Runners & Other Athletes

A prosthetic socket joins your residual limb (the stump) with the prosthesis. All sockets are custom-fitted to your residual limb and should have a snug, comfortable fit to allow you to be active.

Advanced prosthetic systems allow individuals to run further than ever before and therefore have a chance to participate in sports at the highest level. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a novice athlete, the Custom Direct Prosthetic Socket System can make your activities easier and safer.

    To ensure effective care, we follow a meticulous process:
    Our Process
    • Stage 1: Free Consultation

      If you’re interested in learning more about our different sports and athletic prosthetics solutions but are unsure where to begin, take advantage of our free consultations. We’re happy to discuss your options and show you how we can help.

    • Stage 2: First Appointment and Measurements

      After your consultation, we will begin working to fit you for your prosthetic device. You’ll work with a prosthetist who will take a scan or cast of your limb and take any necessary measurements that we’ll use to create your device.

    • Stage 3: Authorization

      We'll work on some administrative steps as soon as we have your information and measurements. We will work to verify your insurance coverage and fill any prescriptions you might need during this time. Transparency in this step will help give you peace of mind.

    • Stage 4: Prosthetics Fabrication

      PrimeCare’s first-time amputees are fitted with temporary prosthetics for 3-12 months. After careful monitoring and evaluation, we select definitive solutions that best suit your condition and lifestyle.

      Dedicated monitoring via our app and regular checkups assessing the suitability of your prosthetic prescription as you progress is vital to ensure comfort and mobility.

    • Stage 5: Fit, Delivery & Socket Fabrication

      Once the prosthetic and the socket have been fabricated, we will have the final product ready for you to try on! We hope it will exceed your expectations, and we’ll work to ensure that the fit and function are exactly what you expected.

    • Stage 6: Progress Tracking and Follow Up

      Our process doesn’t stop there. Perhaps the most important step in fitting you with your prosthetic device is following up with you at regular intervals to see how you are doing and to address any issues surrounding the fit or functionality of your device.
