4 Things To Keep In Mind While Deciding For Best Prosthetics

When a limb, like a hand or a leg, is amputated or lost, a prosthesis plays an important role in its rehabilitation. For many people, an artificial limb improves mobility and the ability to manage daily activities and be independent.

Choosing a prosthesis is an important decision you should take with the guidance of your surgeon or prosthetist. This article will discuss the most important things to consider when choosing a prosthesis.

Form or function

Everyone has different priorities. Some people love to exercise and can’t live without it. Others want the best prosthetics to replicate the look of a natural human limb as much as possible.

For example, a prosthetic leg that we may offer for running sprints may not work with high heels or dress shoes. For some people, both factors are a priority, and they choose to have multiple prosthetics to enable a lifestyle of their choice.

Level of amputation

The severity of amputation affects the factors to consider when choosing a prosthetic. For instance, joint movement may not be important if you had a below-the-knee amputation, but it might be essential if you had an above-the-knee amputation. As you might expect, the same can be said for below-the-elbow and above-the-elbow amputations

The cost

Fortunately, most insurance providers cover the prosthesis you might need. However, each plan (and the amount of coverage) is different, so it’s important to talk with your prosthetist to determine the costs involved. Once that has been worked out, you can then consider what costs you will have to pay for the type of prosthesis you want.
