What to do after the prosthesis gets water


Release Time:

 What to do after the prosthesis gets water I would like to remind amputee friends that you must pay attention to safety when you travel, watch the weather forecast in advance, and take precautions. Try to avoid going out when you encounter heavy rain. If the prosthesis is exposed to rain or water during heavy rain, you can deal with it urgently when you return home: Prosthetic separate carbon fiber feet are exposed to rain/water. Be sure to remove the feet from the feet (here you need to use shoehorns to remove them), dry the feet and feet with a hair dryer, and then assemble them back. The one-piece foot board is exposed to rain/water, and the foot board and the toe skin cannot be separated, and it can be dried directly with a hair dryer. Smart prosthetic feet are exposed to rain/water (rechargeable prostheses), please call your prosthetic assembly company as soon as possible, explain the situation and ask them to give a solution.  Prosthetic Knee/hip joints are exposed to rain/water, first use a hair dryer and cold air to deal with it urgently and contact your prosthesis assembly company by telephone, explain the situation and ask them to give a solution. The mechanical part of the prosthetic upper limb can also be treated with cold air from a hair dryer. At the same time, it is best to contact the prosthetic company to explain the situation and see if they have a better solution. Do not move the screws of your prosthesis for emergency treatment. Once you move the screws, your prosthetic line of force may be "confused", and you may feel like you have changed your leg when you put it on again. After the rainstorm is over, in order to use the prosthesis safely in the later period, try to choose a sunny day to go to your prosthesis assembly company to do a "maintenance" for the prosthesis.   www.as-health.cn
