The design of a prosthesis is based on considerations like your overall health, activity level, strength and flexibility, employment requirements, hobbies, and interests. The prosthesis consists of a custom socket to fit your residual limb and component parts like knees and feet, which are selected to fit your specific needs. All parts of the prosthesis require regular maintenance and occasional replacement to ensure optimal function.

Establishing care with a prosthetist is similar to working with your primary care doctor, in that the relationship is ongoing. Because of that, it is important to choose someone you trust and with whom you feel comfortable. Adaptive offers free initial consultations to allow you the opportunity to get to know your prosthetist, meet the team and make informed decisions about your care.

We recommend looking for a prosthetist who has offices that are convenient for your home or work. Since a prosthesis is custom, it will require multiple visits to or from your prosthetist to ensure proper fit and function. Adaptive has 2 local clinics and mobile service to provide this level of convenience and bring individual communities the attention they deserve.

It’s a good idea to get information from someone with a limb loss circumstance similar to yours. Adaptive is happy to provide you with peer support options. Do not hesitate to ask your prosthetist for more details on how to request a visit.
