CUSTOM LAMINATION
 
Just one of many custom laminations that our lab fabricates.  This one is of The New York Yankees NBL.

Custom lamination of a patriotic theme with the United States Flag and eagles.
Custom lamination for a patient who wanted The Nightmare Before Christmas theme.

​Real Life Prosthetics creates and designs custom lamination for orthotic and prosthetic devices when something more personable is wanted instead of the traditional colors.

A custom lamination may be chosen in part to reflect an individual's personality on their prosthetic or orthotic device.  Sometimes the decision to wear it depends on how the device looks in the end.  We frequently observe this in kids, who may have everything from superheroes to their favorite animation characters on their finished prosthetic or orthotic devices.

Kevin D.

Unilateral Hip Disarticulation

In 1974, Kevin was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg.  He was 5-years old at the time of his amputation surgery, which was the standard treatment at that time.  From that point on, he grew up wearing a prosthesis.

 

"With very few exceptions, there is nothing you will be prevented from doing.  You may not do it the same as everyone else does, but if you want to do something, you'll find a way to do it."

DIRECT SOCKET TT AND TF BY ÖSSUR
Minimizes the time between Initial Evaluation and Delivery of Prosthetic for streamlined Amputee Rehabilitation

 

 

The Direct Socket by Ossur is another fabrication option from the cast and plaster typically used by our practitioners.  Using this method, the socket is fabricated directly on your residual limb, followed by minimal grinding on trim lines, adding componentry and ensuring proper alignment, you are walking out the same day with your custom prosthesis!
