Customised for You
Whether you are a UK resident or living on the other side of the globe, our silicone products are accessible from either of our UK clinics in Ringwood and Burton, or from one of our worldwide partners.
Embracing twenty years’ experience, research and development, the specialist silicone team at Dorset Orthopaedic provide market-leading partial hands designed to meet individual needs. Whether function and durability, comfort or cosmetic appearance is your primary concern, our technicians are available to recommend and design the perfect partial hand for you.
Dorset Orthopaedic’s partial hands are available for all levels of partial hand amputation. The experienced and talented team can provide silicone solutions for a wide range of uses. Whether you would like a partial hand customised for playing the drums, participating in a particular sport or to look great, the possible designs are endless.
Dorset Orthopaedic partial hands provide clinical and cosmetic solutions within one device. Every partial hand encompasses a combination of materials, with specific properties to maximise function and comfort. Soft silicone gel pads can relieve pressure in sensitive areas and medical grade silicones protect vulnerable skin.
Types of Partial Hand
We provide two types of bespoke partial hand: Tri Colour and Multi Colour. These products offer varying levels of cosmetic detail to accommodate different requirements and budgets. Both types of partial hand are custom made, sculpted by hand to mirror the volume, skin and nail characteristics of your sound side or a hand of your choice. The Multi Colour Partial Hand is our highest definition product. Every detail imaginable that forms an integral part of your hand such as hair, freckles, moles, veins and even tattoos can be incorporated. The Tri Colour Partial Hand is a middle range product made from three skin tones, two nail colours and hair if required.
To facilitate the creation of such lifelike and functional products, a casting and silicone appointment is made for you. During your casting appointment a clinician will cast your residual limb in the optimum position to maximise comfort and functionality. Silicone appointments are conducted by specialist technicians, whom you can discuss your needs and expectations with. During this appointment the technician compiles all the information they require in order to manufacture your bespoke order. Measurements and photos are taken, custom colours are mixed and a defined plaster cast of your sound side is made.
