How are digital prostheses secured?
We work closely with patients to understand individual needs and evaluate the affected hand or foot. Our custom silicone prostheses utilize remaining anatomy for retention. We use a precise fit that relies on suction or friction. A minimum of 15mm of remaining finger or toe length is needed for secure attachment. When finger loss is complete – secure retention may require overlapping the remaining part of the hand to create a glove-style prosthesis.
