The cost of an upper limb (UL) prosthesis depends on two primary factors:
Since every case is completely unique, it’s impossible to say exactly what a UL prosthetic solution will cost until one of our specialists has evaluated a patient.
Once a patient’s evaluation is complete and both the prosthetist and patient have agreed to a rehabilitation plan, the patient will be scheduled for a 3-5 day expedited fitting. During this time, the patient will work simultaneously with both the prosthetist and an upper limb prosthetic therapy specialist to fit and refine a custom temporary (a.k.a “preparatory”) prosthesis that achieves their functional goals and is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. After finalizing the preparatory prosthesis, a final (“definitive”) prosthesis is created for the patient to take home with them.
Depending on the complexity of the case, the clinical team may elect to have the patient take their preparatory prosthesis home for a period of time to ensure it is meeting their needs before creating the definitive prosthesis, which can extend the timeframe, but in most cases the process is completed from start to finish in approximately one week.
