We understand that a loss of limb or neurological and musculoskeletal conditions can be life changing. It is our goal to try and help you with your new prosthesis or orthosis.
If you have had an amputation or were born with a missing limb, you may wish to be fitted with prosthesis. There are many reasons you may be missing part or all of a limb, the most common being diabetes, vascular disease, cancer, trauma and congenital (birth defect).
No matter the cause of your limb absence, the solution is broadly similar. In simple terms, we will aim to provide a prosthesis that enables you to carry on with your normal day-to-day activities. Depending on the level of limb loss, your general health and fitness and your own expectations, this could range from running or other sports, to returning to employment, to walking a few kilometres, to simply being able to get around the house. Each person faces unique challenges and will be assessed on an individual basis; your Prosthetist will discuss your needs and expectations in detail so that we can provide the best solution for you.
