As experts in providing above the knee and below the knee prosthetic solutions, Prosthetic 1 in Memphis has extensive experience in developing customized rehabilitation plans, increasing mobility and functionality, and fabricating custom devices.
Marcus Baker and his team of orthotic and prosthetic specialists understand that your lifestyle and goals must be considered in order to develop custom solutions.
To best understand how prosthetic legs work, we must consider the location of the amputation. This essentially means that the location of the amputation will affect how the prosthetic leg will work. For example, above the knee amputations will require a completely different prosthetic than below knee amputations. This is mainly because the knee requires free movement, which means the knee will require different parts to facilitate this functionality.
This is a common question that we receive. Prosthetics refer to the actual field of research and expertise in designing and engineering prosthetic or artificial limbs. Prosthesis is the official term for the actual artificial limbs.
The key difference between these two care services is that orthosis is a device that is used to assist, correct or enhance parts of the body – which corrects mobility in some, and improves mobility in others. Prosthesis strictly refers to an artificial device that permanently replaces a limb.
If you have any questions about our process or general questions about your current prosthesis, please reach out to us and schedule an appointment. Through our patience, understanding and expertise, you will eliminate the thought that your device is a barrier to doing the things you need and love to do. We actually care about the outcomes of all of our patients and genuinely want you to have the best results possible. Contact our Memphis location for an appointment today.
