Prosthetics  Cosmetic Silicone Restoration

G.R.E. O&P realizes the importance of restoring the cosmetic appearance

In addition to restoring the mechanical functions of the body, G.R.E. O&P realizes the importance of restoring the cosmetic appearance that is often neglected by many typical devices. In many cases, G.R.E. O&P staff works closely with artists and technicians from ArTech Labs for custom painting Traditional prostheses have been primarily to restore function with little emphasis on the aesthetic appearance. The first objective of the aesthetic prosthesis is to restore the appearance of the injured limb sufficiently to eliminate, to a high degree, the stigma associated with the disfigurement. Without close examination, ARTech's natural looking restorations are virtually undetectable.

Functional Silicone Prosthetics

ARTech silicone prostheses are also functional. They can improve the gait and posture, ease lower back pain, relieve pressure on bone spurs and other sensitive areas, protect the tissue from further injury, improve the operation of myoelectric hands, etc. In allowing use of an injured limb that the amputee considers too repulsive to expose and use, the prosthesis may well improve overall function. When a restoration has a natural appearance, sculpted and painted to match the opposite limb, as opposed to the robotic or mannequin look of traditional prostheses, utilization by the patient is maximized. This enhanced usability may well be one of the most important functions of all.
