The importance of the relationship you have with your prosthetist cannot be overemphasized. You need to be working as a team towards a common goal. Fostering a successful relationship is the best way to ensure the best outcome for both of you.

When choosing the right prosthetist for you, you may want to talk to some different individuals about the goals and priorities you have. Like any relationship, chemistry between you and your prosthetist is necessary.

When you lose a limb, your goals in life change. You must work hard to reach those goals and we have found that the best results occur when a group of professionals come together to provide individuals with the tools and solutions they need for success. Clear communication with your prosthetist is the best way to ensure that they have a good understanding of all of your goals and needs.

It is important to discuss your preferences and priorities with your prosthetist to feel confident in the work that they will be doing. Be honest and discuss all of your health issues so they can determine the best options for your future care and treatment.

Your prosthetic device is designed based on considerations such as your overall health, anticipated activity level, strength, flexibility, and interests. Both the socket of your device and the attached components will require regular maintenance and replacement to make sure that they function correctly. Your relationship with your prosthetist is probably going to be long-lasting, so make sure that you form a good team for the long haul.
