Living with an arm amputation
Before the amputation
Information on the topic of arm amputations, including preparation, support and amputation levels.
It’s worth knowing that any prosthesis can be covered with what is called a prosthetic glove, so hardly anyone would notice it.
For all amputation levels, a custom arm prosthesis made of silicone, for example, can restore the external appearance and, depending on the amputation level, also fulfil passive functions. These prostheses feature a low weight and easy handling.
