The finalization of the residual limb is very important for the later installation of the prosthesis  It can not only shorten the recovery time, but most importantly, it can reduce the number of times to replace the receiving cavity, relieve the pain of the newly amputation patient, accelerate the swelling, and reduce the economic aspect Expenditures. 01 What are the advantages of stump stereotypes? Naturally shaped stumps are not well-shaped, and the stumps are deformed because they are not restrained. Later in the process of using the prosthesis, they are prone to pain and wear, which also adds great difficulty to the production of the prosthesis. Appropriate dressing and styling can avoid these situations. It can shorten the swelling of the residual limb, promote the return of blood, and reduce the occurrence of complications. Using some methods to promote the shaping of the residual limb can shorten the shaping time of the residual limb to 2-3 months. 02Methods to promote the stereotypes of residual limbs Elastic bandage-prosthetic stockinette The bandage must have elasticity, and ordinary gauze bandages cannot be used. When wrapping, make sure that the end of the residual limb can have enough pressure, and it is necessary to avoid the ring-shaped wrapping that causes blood loss. 2. Wear a temporary prosthesis (trial cavity) 2-3 weeks after the amputation, the temporary prosthesis can be assembled after the wound has healed well. The use of the temporary prosthesis should not be too long each time or every day. It should be gradually extended according to the weight of the limb, the control ability, and the acceptance of the amputee. 3. Wear a professional shaped prosthetic silicone sleeve This kind of expensive price generally don't mind wearing it. 03Precautions for prosthetic bandages When choosing a bandage, you must choose an elastic one, you cannot use it without elasticity! The bandage should not be wrapped for too long, it should be intermittent, and don't mind wrapping at night. When bandaging the lower leg, try to expose the position of the patella, and when bandaging the upper arm, try to expose the back of the elbow joint, so as not to affect the joint activities. The bandage should be cleaned regularly, with warm water and a small alkaline soap, and placed on a flat surface to dry, remember to expose it to the sun. To wrap the bandage, use the eight-character winding method, starting from the distal end of the stump, and remember that the loop-wrapped bandage causes no blood flow. SHIJIAZHAUNG AOSUO O&P
