Prosthetic Fingers - RTP Company
Consult a certified prosthetist before you get a prosthesis. They can provide important and quality information on what your realistic expectation should be. Be prepared mentally and physically for prosthesis. Speak to an amputee especially those who are close to your age can be a source to get more information as well as mental support and preparation. Control and exercise our body after about two weeks of surgery depending on wound healing especially residual limb for the preparation of prostheses fitting.

Next Step prosthetists are available for an immediate post-operative fitting of the prosthesis in the operating room, so the patient awakens with a prosthetic limb in place.
Surgeons may refer their patients to Next Step before surgery to discuss prosthetic options and the fitting process, as well as patient expectations following amputation. Educating patients before surgery can help alleviate their concerns and better prepare them for life as an amputee. Next Step practitioners are able to begin the rehabilitation process the day before surgery. Practioners make a hospital visit to take measurements for a post-operative protection system. With the help of FLO-TECH's adjustable postoperative protective and preparatory system, the APOPPS, the practitioner can protect the patient against injury during both early and preparatory stages of rehabilitation, provide easy access to bandages and dressings for wound care, permit measured and controlled weight bearing, control swelling and edema, and give control as the patient prepares the residual limb for a definative prosthesis.

Determining the most effective type of amputation for each patient (e.g., above knee vs. below knee, above knee vs. knee disarticulation) can be critical in achieving an optimal residual limb length for a properly fitting prosthesis. Next Step clinicians offer free consultation services to surgeons before surgery to discuss ways to maximize a patient's prosthetic potential and to determine the optimal location of the amputation.

However, this situation changed when Matthew Mikosz, President of Partial Hand Solutions, began visualizing an idea for a prosthetic finger device. Dubbed “M-Fingers,” Mikosz built the prototype in his basement, and with material development assistance from RTP Company, has been able to bring his concept to life.

“I wanted to develop something that hadn’t been developed yet,” explained Mikosz. “This area of prosthetics has gone untouched for many years, and with so many soldiers coming home with hand and finger injuries, I saw an opportunity to really give back to veterans who had lost something.”

Chris Budnick, General Manager at Vanguard Plastics, was also heavily involved with the development of M-Fingers. “With so many of these M-Fingers being used by soldiers in rehabilitation, it was very important that RTP Company’s materials provide both structural stability and, at the same time, the ability to move and operate the prosthesis smoothly.”
