We can help you with modern prosthetic options.
Few advances in medical technology have affected people’s lives as much as upper limb prosthetics. These devices have come a long way, giving people who have lost a limb or who were born without one the chance to enjoy improved functionality and a feeling of power. At Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, we offer customized upper limb prosthetics that match your needs and lifestyle in the Greensboro, North Carolina area.
One of the most critical ways upper limb prosthetics can improve your life is by giving you freedom. When someone loses a limb, it can make it very hard to do everyday tasks like buttoning a shirt or cooking a meal. Prosthetic arms, hands, and fingers are made with usefulness in mind, giving you improved independence and confidence. Upper limb prosthetics can also make it easier to enjoy hobbies, sports, and other activities that enhance your physical and mental well-being.
Modern upper limb prosthetics are made not only to work well but also to look good. Prosthetic limbs can be customized to the skin tone and shape of the person who will wear them. This makes them look more natural, reducing the stigma of wearing them.
In addition, upper limb prosthetics allow you to return to work or choose a new field, giving you the freedom to set and reach new goals. This also pushes you beyond your comfort zone, causing you to increase your social circle and dream big. And as prosthetic technology improves, the difference between natural and artificial gets smaller, making your opportunities even better.
While losing a limb is an emotional roller coaster, today’s technology helps you regain your footing and provides the necessary tools for you to return stronger than ever. Contact our team to learn more.
