Life after amputation
As a result of an accident or because healing of the affected body part is out of the question, it may be necessary to have the corresponding body part surgically amputated. Unfortunately, body parts cannot be replaced. However, we can try to make your life a little easier. With our products we try to alleviate the pain that this often causes. This pain does not necessarily have to be of a physical nature. Unfortunately, the emotional component is always underestimated and leads many people to feel less perfect than before amputation. I would now like to show you which products we offer and how they can help you. Our shop concentrates in the category amputation on the following subproducts:
- butt stockings
- breast prostheses
- Epitheses Lingerie
- Care products for prosthesis wearers and epitheses
- Prosthetic shoes
It's best to start with the residual limb stockings. After amputation, a swollen residual limb makes timely prosthesis fitting difficult. A compression residual limb helps to reduce post-operative wound edema and helps to prevent an increase in volume. In addition, residual limb socks also give the residual limb a more advantageous, cylindrical shape, which is then easy to prosthetic fit.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. This serious physical change as a result of cancer always has enormous effects on the psyche, but above all on one's own self-esteem and the feeling of femininity. Fortunately, no one needs to see the cancer in public. In addition to breast reconstruction, we therefore recommend wearing an external breast prosthesis, also called breast epithesis. A breast prosthesis is a silicone breast prosthesis available in various sizes and shapes. As a rule, these are inserted into a prosthetic bra (prosthetic lingerie). This leads to an aesthetic or optical compensation of the breast.
