Cosmetic Aspects of Modular Prostheses

  • M. Näder
Part of the Strathclyde Bioengineering Seminars book series (KESE)

Summary

Disability has both physical and psychological effects on the patient. Different patients will approach the rehabilitation process in different ways and may be more concerned with one or other of these aspects. All are likely to react favourably to a solution which minimises the appearance of abnormality.

Consideration is given to this problem and to the solution afforded by the modular system of prosthetic construction.
