Care for the prosthesis

Prosthesis is an important new part of your body. It is a complex tool designed to enhance your independence, activity level and mobility. Gaining experience in the use of the prosthesis, you will become more and more dependent on this tool for your daily life. That's why it not so bad from the very beginning to follow some basic guidelines to keep the prosthesis in good working condition. Remember that this is a mechanical device and as such, it will sometimes require maintenance or repair. By visiting your orthopedic specialist at least once a year, potential problems in the prosthesis can be detected in time and corrected before prosthesis has become unusable. This is also a good opportunity to discuss with your orthopedic specialist new technologies and enhancements that are now available.
