Artificial limb orthopedic parts suppliers share common problems during prosthesis wearing
1. What should I do if the acceptance cavity is loose?
Artificial limb orthopedic parts supplier said that when the receiving cavity feels loose, the first solution is to increase the residual limb socks (up to three layers); if it is still loose, it can be solved by sticking a layer of felt on the four walls of the receiving cavity. If necessary, replace with a new socket.
Artificial limb orthopedic parts supplier reminds that the relaxation of the receptacle is generally caused by the atrophy of the residual limb, so it is necessary to exercise reasonably to maintain the size of the residual limb.
2. What should I do if the prosthesis gets wet?
Artificial limb orthopedic parts suppliers describe several different types of treatment options:
If it is rain/water ingress of the separate foot plate, be sure to take the foot plate out of the foot skin first, dry the foot skin and foot plate with the cold air of a hair dryer, and then assemble it back.
If the one-piece footboard is exposed to rain/water, the footboard cannot be separated from the foot skin, and it can be dried directly with the cold air of a hair dryer.
If the smart foot plate is exposed to rain/water, please call the prosthetic assembly company as soon as possible, explain the situation and ask them to give a solution.
If the knee joint/hip joint and the mechanical part of the upper limb prosthesis are exposed to rain/water, use a hair dryer to deal with the emergency first, and then contact the prosthetic limb assembly company to explain the situation and ask them to give a solution.
Artificial limb orthopedic parts suppliers reminds one point, do not move the screw of the prosthesis in emergency.
3. What should I do if there is a noise while walking?
Artificial limb orthopedic parts suppliers said that if there is a noise when walking, you should carefully check whether the screws at the joints are loose, or whether there are problems at the joints, etc. After the discovery, use special tools to solve it in time, and you can also go to a professional prosthetic company for maintenance.
