Toe Prostheses

The gait pattern greatly affects the ability to walk and the toes play a critical role in the function of
providing balance, posture control and propulsion. The toes help balance the pressure
distribution of the entire foot during walking and are an integral mechanism of propulsion during
walking. Therefore, even in the case of the amputation of one or more toes an apparatus such as
a prosthetic is necessary to support this critical bodily requirement.

Prosthetic toes from SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics 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 are resilient to very high temperatures.

Toe 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 toe prosthesis requires
special fixation, it will be made of suitable materials to support the fixation.

Toe prostheses from SkinFeel™ have an exceptional aesthetic quality while also providing
concrete functionality and use in everyday life. The wide range of SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics
cosmetic toe prostheses caters to people of all ages with different levels of disabilities and
complexity of amputation.

Custom Toe Prostheses

Custom toe prostheses are made entirely to measure to be a precise and accurate copy of a duplicate toe from the client. They provide a hyper-realistic result that mimics the shape and surface of the client’s skin (veins, age, pigmentation, freckles etc) of a healthy toe. This silicone toe prosthesis is intended for people looking for a toe 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 the client’s wishes.

In total, the entire manufacturing process of a custom silicone toe can take up to 6 weeks from the initial appointment.

Semi-Custom Toe Prostheses

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

With a wide range of shapes and forms, SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics offers a large range of 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 toe prosthesis offers the benefit of a more cost effective and quicker to produce toe prosthesis that maintains a level of realism as convincing as the custom.

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


Standard Toe Prostheses

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

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

The standard toe 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.

In total, the entire manufacturing process of the standard toe prosthesis can take up to 10 days.
