Gathering information about your level of physical fitness and health, the amputation level, the demands you place on the prosthesis and your future goals are just a few of the considerations that will help us to determine what type of prosthesis would be most appropriate for you.
A temporary prosthesis is used for up to a year in situations where you are likely to experience volume loss/shrinkage resulting in a very loose fitting socket. A definitive prosthesis could last years due to minimal changes in your residual limb.
On average, it can take four to six weeks from the time evaluated you are evaluated to the time that you are fit with a prosthesis, depending upon what prosthesis you choose.
The prosthetist’s goals are to ensure that the prostheses that they deliver to patients fit and function properly which usually involves some training. However, learning how to walk again and/or achieve functional goals while wearing the prosthesis is where physical therapy can be of great benefit.

See your prosthetist every six months or sooner:

  • If the prosthetic is not functioning or fitting properly
  • Your activity level has changed
  • If you have had a weight gain/loss
A physical therapist can help you to wear and use your prosthesis while improving strength, balance and coordination. We can help you to find this health professional if you wish.
This is an individual who has experienced limb loss and can provide personal insights to assist with questions you may have. They are a good source of information and we can recommend one for you upon request.
Typically, after getting your strength back and learning to walk with a prosthesis, you should be able to return to your normal activities.
Yes. In order to make a prosthesis look more like a “real” leg, foam can be used to cover the structural components and provide a more anatomical shape.
While there are some exceptions, most prosthetic devices are not waterproof and it can be harmful to wear them against the skin for a prolonged period of time when they are wet. Your device will usually not be harmed by slight exposure, such as walking briefly through the rain but should not be worn while swimming or bathing unless you have been specifically directed to do so. If your device becomes wet, it should be removed and dried before putting it back on. If a waterproof device is something that is necessary or helpful for your lifestyle, please discuss it with your clinician at your appointment that can help address those needs.
Some devices can be worn while driving but others may interfere with your ability to operate the controls of the vehicle or interfere with your ability to see in all directions for safe driving. Please exercise caution in determining if you can safely operate a motor vehicle. Contact the DMV to see what is required, if anything, for you to do so legally and safely.
We cannot make any guarantees about how security in public areas will handle any of these medical devices. Many prosthetics contain metal parts that will be recognized by scanners. We recommend talking with the security professional conducting the screening about your device and your needs. If you can safely remove the device to pass through screening, it may be the easiest solution but do not risk injury or remove your device if you are not comfortable doing so, or if it is against your medical professional’s advice.
Insurance companies establish the pricing for all of the components that comprise a prosthesis. This is called the Fee Schedule and accounts not only for the specific component but also the practitioner’s time in fabricating, fitting, and/or adjusting the component or components properly.
Many insurance companies now offer a variety of “plans/policies” to let patients select the one that best suits your needs. It is a good idea for you to refer to your own policy to see if prosthetic services are covered and the specifics of your health plan.
Bio Dynamic Technologies accepts many insurances. Call us and we will conduct the research to let you know what your coverage will be.
Yes. We will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your budget
Absolutely. We work with many different workers’ comp and auto/no fault insurance policies, Is there a warranty for my device?
All prosthetics that we provide are covered by warranty but the length of time varies with each device. Our office staff can give you more detailed information about the warranty that applies to your specific item.
Many custom-made devices can be repaired or refurbished but it depends upon the exact nature of the problem.
