Preparatory Prostheses

A preparatory prosthesis is generally the first prosthesis that you would be fit with. The components used may be the same as those for a definitive prosthesis but the preparatory/temporary will not include a cosmetic cover, that is to say that the components between the amputation and the floor will be exposed. A preparatory prosthesis is generally prescribed when it is expected that the amputation is going to change significantly and will require the portion that fits the amputation (the socket) to be re-molded to maintain an appropriately fitting and therefore functioning prosthesis.
