Need A Prosthetic Tune-Up?
A prosthetic limb is like a new car in some respects: It’s fine tuned and shiny when it leaves our “showroom,” but use and time take a toll to the point that periodic servicing becomes necessary if the “driver” wants to continue to enjoy top performance.
As a general rule, we recommend a prosthetic tune-up every six months, more often if the client has undergone weight gain/loss of five or more pounds, changed activity level, or is experiencing significant discomfort or functional problems with the limb.
During this maintenance visit, we will:
- evaluate socket fit and integrity;
- ensure all components are in good shape and provide replacements or adjustments as needed;
- evaluate limb performance and check alignment for gait optimization; address any questions or problems the client may raise; and assist with any needed prosthetic supplies (suspension sleeves, liners, limb socks, etc.)
The socket should be replaced if it has become significantly worn, discolored or cracked; if it no longer fits intimately due to changes in residual limb size or shape; or if the wearer has undergone additional residual limb surgery. Most patients can expect to receive several sockets during their lifetime.
To schedule a tune-up, call our office today.
