Once your residual limb has healed and you are in good health again, the process of fitting your final prosthesis is started. However, your prosthetist will already attend to you beforehand and ask you some questions in order to be able to respond to your needs and wishes. In addition, he will assess your residual limb shortly after the amputation and find out if an interim prosthesis would work for you. In addition, a doctor will attend to your fitting if you want or if your prosthetist thinks it's necessary.
After these initial assessments, your prosthetist will recommend and discuss various fitting options with you. Three essential topics are involved:
- Selection of components
- The prosthesis socket
- Alignment of the prosthesis
Only when all three topics have been discussed sufficiently and the results conform to your and the rehabilitation team's requirements is the fitting process of the socket started on the one hand, and your prosthetist selects the prosthesis components based on the Mobis® System on the other hand. Then the prosthesis can be finished, that is, the final prosthesis is built and receives a cosmetic cover.
