About the price of prosthetic limbs
The price of the prosthetic limbs is set by the assembly unit itself. There are two kinds of pricing methods, pragmatic and non pragmatic. Unfortunately, in today's society, consumers' purchase mentality is that the pragmatic price sales method may not be believed. The non pragmatic price and the unconventional and excessive "discount" sales method are often liked by consumers. The so-called "discount" will make many irrational prosthetic appliance consumers feel satisfied, while ignoring the configuration, quality, performance and later service of products. Then, consumers should pay attention to the cost performance of the product when choosing the prosthesis products, rather than pursuing the excessive "discount" of the product price out of the routine. The types of prostheses can be divided into beauty prosthesis (no difference between appearance and real limbs), electromyographic prosthesis (a high-tech prosthesis, which needs to be charged), mechanical prosthesis (this is a very functional prosthesis, through training, the prosthesis can simply replace your lost limbs to do some simple things).
Is the higher the price of the prosthesis more suitable for amputees? In life, some amputees will always find that the use effect of the prosthesis is not ideal, it is easy to fall or gait is not coordinated with little attention. In order to improve, will the higher the price of the prosthesis, the better the effect?
Under the current technical conditions, the qualified prostheses have perfect performance, such as light weight, multiple functions, strong compensation ability and convenient popularization of factory production. At this time, when amputees choose, they should pay attention to that because different patients, amputation parts and physical fitness are different, the products they choose will be different, and more attention should be paid to whether they are suitable, rather than just to the price. For surgery and trauma events, edema is usually an unavoidable reaction, which delays the next stage of prosthesis assembly.
In addition, if it is a qualified product, the high price of the prosthesis means to some extent that its function is relatively perfect, and it is also more intelligent, which can help patients recover their ability of self-care and help reduce psychological pressure. Amputees can choose this type of product when they follow the doctor's orders, but they should pay attention to the need to combine with reasonable rehabilitation training, so that the value of the product can be brought into full play. In this case, if the patient's friends do not take effective measures in time and communicate with professionals, it is easy to have two bad situations.
It is generally believed that the quality of the prosthesis installation is the standard for disabled friends to choose the prosthesis factory. In fact, when you have a very consistent prosthesis, you can use it reasonably for a long time, which is closely related to your disabled friend. This is like a high-performance fighter. Only when it is driven by a highly skilled pilot can its performance be exerted. Otherwise, its high-performance will be buried. When starting to use the prosthesis, the disabled friends should be patient, persistent, not afraid of hardship, and use proper methods to make the prosthesis a part of their own body. There is a process for any prosthetic user to achieve natural gait and use freely: training mastery proficiency. When the disabled friends come to the artificial limb factory for the first time and see many artificial hands, legs or even the whole artificial legs, they will be shocked and have a sense of fear. Some disabled young women will cry when they see this scene and think of their own disabled limbs. Although the price of this type of prosthesis is is relatively high, its effect is good, the difference with skin is small, and the overall cost performance is higher. This will produce certain psychological obstacles for the use of artificial limbs in the future. Only by gradually adapting, can we gradually eliminate the tension.
