To ensure that you get the most out of your new prosthesis journey with MOBILIS, Pre-Prosthetic rehabilitation is the vital part before you begin the process. The details below will help to guide you through a structured path before you visit MOBILIS. We also collaborate with several specialists in the country who can assist you with proper pre-prosthetic rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation and physiotherapy is crucial immediately after amputation surgery to avoid complications such as depression, joint contractures and pathological scars. Post-surgical complications could include cardio-vascular problems, residual limb pain and phantom sensation, oedema, contracture and wound dehiscence.
Physical therapists will work long-term with the amputee. The average time-frame to be fit with a prosthesis is 6-8 weeks after surgery but this may differ based on each individual case. After fitting the first prosthesis you would need to do further therapy at home or at the rehab facility.
Together we make it!
The process of Prosthetic fitting involves the following stages
The Ideal stump is one that is well-healed, has good vascular supply, soft and mobile scars, minimal pain, minimal edema, a length sufficient for bio-mechanical leverage but not too long to restrict choices for prosthetic components, and large surface areas for distribution of pressure.
Your surgeon plan in advance for ideal stump before the surgery and physiotherapist/rehab team plays a vital role in shaping the stump by using proper bandaging or by special stump shrinker compression stockings.
A temporary prosthesis consists of a check socket [clear socket], means of suspension, knee (for above-knee amputees), pylon, and foot. This allows the prosthetist to make changes to the fit of the socket or to change the alignment as you begin to walk.
A permanent prosthesis consists of a much stronger socket and a more durable version of the check socket made during the fitting process. This is made typically after physical therapy has been completed. This is constructed of durable and flexible materials like carbon fiber, nylon, and resin.
A state-of-the-art 3D measurement system produces a socket that fits perfectly and avoids slippage. This method saves time and the socket is as comfortable as a second skin to enhance your activity and step on your feet again.
A secure socket fit is a vital part of a successful prosthesis. This is achieved through multiple factors during manufacturing. The most important among all is to have a perfect socket design achieved through digital measurements and manufacturing. MOBILIS also uses innovative components that allow instant control of the socket-fit, ensuring that your prosthesis fitting great, comfortable, and as high performing as possible, all while still being easy to use and adjust. Using appropriate liners and Knowledge on the application of different suspension system makes a perfect prosthetic system.
Custom silicone sockets are tailored as per the patient measurements, It acts as a flexible protective cover, with a cushioning material worn over the residual limb. It helps to reduce shear forces and peak forces, Specific characteristics to work with different suspension systems, Ensure that the prosthesis fits well and is comfortable to wear, Protect the stump skin and critical areas, Supports and maintain healthy residual limb condition, Supports stump care, Reduces edema and reduces movement and chafing between the skin and the socket. It relieves pressure and provides a better grip for the socket to the residual limb. It is durable and easy to clean.
