First visit

After evaluating the level of your daily activities, you will be offered the most optimal prosthesis option in consultation with a technical orthopedist.

When arriving for a consultation:
– you must bring your personal identification document and previously performed examinations.
– be aware that you will have to expose the area of the amputation trunk so that the technical orthopedist can look at it, take measurements and take a cast that will serve as the basis for making a prosthesis.

Measurements, fabrication and fitting

The manufacture of individual aids begins with taking measurements. Depending on the complexity of the product, the duration of the production of the aid is agreed with the patient. We also adapt factory-made assistive devices.

Further cooperation

After the meeting with the doctor, a repeat visit to the specialist will be recommended to you if necessary. When receiving a prosthesis, an adaptation period is required, during which the body gets used to the prosthesis. If you feel discomfort after the adaptation period, please contact us so that we can assess the need for prosthesis corrections.
The warranty period for technical aids paid for by the state and received with personal funds is 2 years, during which we carry out free repairs and corrections. After the warranty period expires, we offer the opportunity to correct the product or stand in line for a new aid paid for by the state in accordance with Cabinet of Ministers regulations no. 1474.
