Full and Partial Hand Prostheses

Hand prostheses from SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics can be provided in various forms and be adapted specifically to the needs of each client, whether a full or partial hand is required. SkinFeel™ hand prostheses are made of hypo-allergenic silicone that is suitable for regular and constant contact with the skin. It is non-allergic, highly durable, stain resistant and is resilient to very high temperatures.

Total and partial hand prostheses can be held on the stump without the need for a mechanical fixation thanks to the natural air gap between the stump and the prosthesis. If the silicone prosthesis requires a special fixation, it will be made of suitable materials to support that fixation.

Our full and partial hand prostheses have an exceptional aesthetic quality but also can provide concrete functionality in everyday life. The wide range of SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics cosmetic hand prostheses caters to people of all ages with different levels of disabilities and complexity of amputation.

Custom Full & Partial Hand Prostheses

Custom full and partial prostheses are made entirely to measure to be a precise and accurate copy of the client’s other hand with a hyper-realistic result that mimics the shape and surface of the skin (veins, age, pigmentation, freckles etc) of the healthy hand. This silicone hand prosthesis is intended for people looking for a full or partial hand prosthesis that will fit every need of their social and environmental requirements.

The form is specific to the individual and they are designed in a silicone that is non-allergic, very durable to wear, stain resistant and can withstand very high temperatures.

The nails are made of acrylic and can be varnished. The form and shape can be chosen by the client according to their wishes.

In total, the entire manufacturing process of a custom silicone hand can take up to two months from the initial appointment.

Semi-Custom Full & Partial Hand Prostheses

A SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics Semi-custom full and partial hand prostheses offers all the hyper-realistic benefits of a custom prosthesis, but unlike the custom prostheses which are made from a cast of the client’s healthy hand, the semi-custom  prosthesis is created on an existing mould of an hand that closely matches the client.

With a wide range of shapes and forms, SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics offers a large selection and opportunity to find the most adapted form for each client. While there remains a potential for slight differences in proportion and morphology, the semi-custom hand prosthesis offers the benefit of a more cost effective and quicker to produce hand prosthesis that maintains a level of realism as convincing as the custom.

In total, the process of creating a semi-custom hand prosthesis can take up to a month.

Standard Full & Partial Hand Prostheses

The SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics range of standard full hand prostheses provides a powerfully cost-effective solution for clients that are seeking a prosthesis and are not ready for our custom hand prosthetic solutions but would still like a realistic looking hand prosthesis.

A wide range of different styles and shapes of hand prostheses are available in the standard range from SkinFeel™ and includes 16 different standard skin tones that can be selected from.

The standard full hand prosthetic range comes with integrated silicone nails made from the same material as the prosthesis. They are a standard size nail which cannot be varnished. Acrylic nails are available as an additional option.

Thank you so much for the prosthesis! Several of my friends even called it a work of art, which I do not disagree with. Particularly, after I saw the whole incredibly painstaking process of its creation. Now, thanks to you, I own a piece of art!

Keep up your amazing work. I am very satisfied customer.
