Passive arm prostheses

Visually appealing arm prostheses

After an amputation, patients have to consider the question of a prosthetic fitting. A decision needs to be made whether the future arm prosthesis will be more functional or whether a natural appearance is going to be emphasised. If you place greater emphasis on the appearance and wearer comfort for example, we offer a selection of passive arm prostheses that are visually appealing; however, their functionality is limited to that of a simple counter-support when handling articles of use.

Especially in designing Ottobock cosmetic hands, which consist of an inner hand and an easy to care for cosmetic glove, we implement design possibilities in order to replicate your natural hand in great detail. For custom adaptation, 43 models for children, women and men are available in 18 natural shades each. Your orthopaedics specialist will be happy to provide you with further information, also regarding the use of passive system hands.
