the alternative limb project

process

Upon consultation Sophie will take a cast of your sound side or use a donor foot/hand if you are bilateral. She will take colour readings, photographs, and discuss ideas with you should you want something a little different.

If your prosthesis is in direct contact with the skin, (e.g finger, toe, partial foot or hand) a test piece will be made so that your prosthetist can check the fitting. If they are not happy with this, Sophie will make modifications and repeat the process. When we are all satisfied with the fitting, the limb will be created.

You will be invited to the studio to be a live model as the limb is sculpted. If you are opting for something a little more unusual you will be invited to assist in design decisions.
