Silicone finger and partial hand prosthetics
A product as unique as you are
If you are looking for a natural, custom prosthetic system, then a Custom silicone hand or finger prosthesis is your best option. Whether you are shaking hands or giving a presentation, you'll feel comfortable and confident with your prosthesis.
Tailored to your specific shape and skin color, this low profile option can be customized to include your freckles, veins, and even hair—making it as realistic as possible.
The entire prosthesis is custom-made by hand. This also applies to the shape and colour of the fingernails. They can even be painted if desired.
Thanks to the use of silicone, it is not only possible to recreate your skin surface perfectly, but also to capture the smallest details such as small veins, skin pigments or hair.
The shape of the fingers and the appearance of the natural hand are replicated in detail.
Comfortable to wear
Silicone prostheses are held securely on the residual limb by a vacuum, without bothersome closures. The thin, tapered edges additionally improve wearer comfort.

Every attempt is made to match your skin color as closely as possible. However, it is very helpful to understand that human skin is ever changing. It is greatly influenced by environmental effects such as sunlight. Skin tone naturally changes when you’re nervous or excited. The silicone material used is not living; therefore, it will not change with natural skin color fluctuations.
Ottobock silicone has a very specific structure that makes our silicone very durable.
The lifetime of the prosthesis will vary greatly depending on your activity level. The pigment color is intrinsic, so you don’t have to worry about color fading or wearing off. They are all under warranty for one year under normal usage against manufacturer defects.
