AS CLOSE TO NATURE AS IT GETS.  OUR HIGH-TECH PROSTHESES COMBINE SUPERIOR FUNCTIONALITY WITH A NATURAL APPEARANCE

.

SILICONE FINGER PROSTHESES.

For finger replacements, silicone offers an area of advantages that no other material offers.

Combining aesthetic and functional aspects, finger prostheses - each one a piece of art in itself - bring a distinct improvement to quality of life.  The characteristics of silicone enable the use of minimised shanks/shafts to maintain the liberty of movement for the remaining fingers and parts of the hand.  The prosthesis is fixed to the hand with a vacuum shaft that can be reinforced with a vacuum chamber.

Fingernails, skin tone and texture and the shape of the prosthesis, all imitate the original perfectly.


SILICONE ARM COSMETICS

Individual cosmetic silicone covers give a natural appearance to modern arm prostheses.  Shape and colour are matched with the adjacent skin.  Details such as the quality and texture of the skin, hair and veins can be replicated authentically.

The cover is resistant to environmental influences like sunlight, dirt, water and thermal influences.

SILICONE LEG COSMETICS

Individual cosmetic silicone covers give a natural appearance to modern leg prostheses.  Shape and colour are matched with the adjacent skin.  Details such as the quality and texture of the skin, hair and veins can be replicated authentically. The cover is resistant to environmental influences like sunlight, dirt, water and thermal influences.

SILICONE LINER

The silicone liner technique is a proven method to form- and force-fit the prosthesis to the human body, while maintaining the highest degree of comfort possible.

The Brillinger custom fit product line enable us to individually accommodate patients' wants and needs at both upper and lower extremities.  According to the uniqueness of the stump, materials, fasteners and manufacturing techniques will be chosen and conbined efficiently.

1.  HTV Liner - this very thin liner has low skin friction and is expecially suitable for long stumps.

2.  GEL Liner - this liner has a silicone-gel composite on the inside surface, which effectively absorbs friction.  It further has a cushioning effect.  Owing to reduced elongation and to the nature of the material covering the surface it is a very comfortable liner.

3.  CONTACT Liner - this liner is based on the technology of the Gel liner, though the interior is coated with soft silicone, which is characterised by high surface adhesion and an excellent cushioning effect.  Similar to the Gel liner, a silicone-highshorematrix provides it with the necessary stability.

4.  SILFLEX Liner - this thin liner consists of silicone rubber reinforced with fabric netting.  With its high adhesive strength characteristics, it is well suited for long stumps.

SILICONE PRE-FOOT PROSTHESIS

Silicone provides the opportunity to match functionality and easy handling with aesthetics.  The stump is embedded completely, the softness of the contact areas can be adjusted.  Silicone is resistant to water, sunlight and extreme temperatures.  Silicone is easy to clean and can even be sanitised.

According to two plaster casts - one as a sample for the shape and one to fit the prosthesis - our technicians manufacture a sample prosthesis.  The patient then uses the sample in daily life for a while to help us to optimise the result.

With our technology it is possible to manufacture highly individualised surfaces, capturing the appearance of nature's role model.
