At MedEast our certified, licensed clinicians want to simplify prosthetic legs and feet for our Philadelphia and tri-state patients. They will evaluate, cast, measure, and fit your temporary prosthesis with-in your own home. We know that as a new amputee getting in and out of your home, negotiating transportation and getting to the prosthetic office can be difficult. We strive to ease that burden by seeing you in your home environment in order to make the transition back to walking as smooth as possible. Â Some adjustments and future prosthetics may require office visits for optimal outcomes.
Getting You Back to… LIFE!
Finger and Partial Hand
If you’ve had a finger or partial hand amputation, you could be a candidate for many different prosthetic options. There are various functional and specialty prostheses that are available, depending on the amount of hand remaining.
Below the Elbow
If you’ve had a below-the-elbow amputation, a prosthesis will need to replace the functions of both the wrist and the hand. There are many different prosthetic options available for people with below-the-elbow amputations
Above the Elbow
If you’ve had an above-the-elbow amputation, a prosthesis will need to replace the functions of the elbow, wrist, and hand. While more complex than other amputation levels, there are plenty of prosthetic options available to above-the-elbow amputees.
At the shoulder
If you have an amputation at the shoulder level, the prosthesis needs to replace the functions of all the joints of the upper limb. This is the most complex upper limb prosthesis, but there are countless options available for this amputation level.
