FitProsthetics is the 1st company in Utah to use 3D scanning and printing to produce upper and lower body custom made prosthetics. Our staff's primary goal is to help boost a patient's confidence, mobility, and quality of life. If necessary, we will come to you for appointments, whether it is your home or workplace, a skilled nursing facility, hospital, or a doctor's office. Evening and weekend appointments are also available.
At FitProsthetics, we know how to get the perfect fit on your new prosthetic limb. The scanning time is only 45 seconds, eliminating a long casting process and the need for plaster or other wet casters. The scan will show us the size and shape of your limb. A 3D replica will be taken and uploaded onto our computer-assisted modifications software program. This helps track any changes in your limb to make necessary changes. FitProsthetics is the only orthotics and prosthetics company in Utah that 3D prints prosthetic sockets. These are used to make sure the patient is happy with the fit and function before delivery.
To make you the proper below-knee prosthesis, FitProsthetics will need to evaluate the patient's activity level thoroughly. Career, hobbies, medical history, physical strength, family, and environment are just some of the things that will help us find a patient the right prosthesis. Below knee, prosthesis fabrication is done in-house at the Murray office in Salt Lake City.
Hands and Arms
FitProsthetics uses three systems for hand and arm prosthetics; ETD myoelectric hooks, myoelectric I-limbs, and digits. ETD stands for 'electric terminal device.' The I-limb fingers are slender and can move in proportion to each other or individually. This helps the patient with grasping objects.
After the initial prosthesis fitting, several follow-up appointments are scheduled. You will come back in 7 days, 30 days, 60 days, and every 90 days to make sure the new prosthesis is working correctly. Motion Control Inc. creates our prosthetics.
