Prosthetics Designed for You

Over the years, the focus of prosthetics has slipped to making the prosthetic hand design the top priority. As prosthetic technology continues to evolve and develop, it’s easy to see how this perspective developed. However, the answer to care is not to provide the most technically complex, and often the most expensive, prosthetic system that can be found. Rather, the most useful and appropriate systems are chosen based on the planned activities of the patient, whether at school, at work, or at play. This concept is at the center of the Handspring philosophy.

The Handspring culture is all about treating each person as an individual and finding the treatment plan that will best help every client to live their own daily lives. Each client goes through a detailed evaluation process that incorporates prosthetic and therapy questions critical to optimizing a patient’s success with their new prosthesis. It’s essential for all of the Handspring team to thoroughly understand a client’s goals, limitations, and capabilities BEFORE the prosthesis is designed and fabricated.

Once this level of understanding is achieved, then our team of prosthetists, therapists, and fabrication experts take a holistic approach to the creation of each person’s prosthesis. There is no ‘arm in a box’. There are no pre-configured devices. Instead, our clinical team creates a prosthesis that has been designed, customized, and fabricated for each person’s needs.

The Handspring Patient Care Process has one overriding objective – care for each and every client as an individual.

Utilizing CAD/CAM Technology

The clinical and fabrication team at Handspring has committed to the use of CAD/CAM technology to enhance our care. We start by capturing the shape of the limb with a scanner, such as a Comb or Artec scanner, to get a clean, accurate model.

Our team then uses various CAD/CAM technologies just such as Ossur Design Studio, Orten, OMEGA Tracer, GeoMagic Freeform, Autodesk Fusion 360, Rhinoceros 3D, HP Fusion Printing, and various in-house printers such as Icarus and Bambu.

The result is a highly-repeatable, clean, quick, and accurate patient fitting process, shaving hours off behind-the-scenes work and leaving us with more time to spend meeting your goals.
