Dermatos® Partial Hand Prosthesis

When an amputee has fingers amputated beyond the length for individual finger prostheses to be attached, partial hand prostheses are made to prosthetically restore the missing fingers. Every situation is unique, but Alatheia has provided solutions for a wide variety of needs.

On the hand above, the amputations still provided an adequate base of support for suspension, allowing for three separate finger prostheses. The hand was covered with a partial hand prosthesis (three fingers) that allowed her actual thumb to protrude from the glove. The index finger was fitted with its own separate prosthesis which allows for a greater range of motion, as it can be moved independently of the partial hand unit.
