Full and Partial Feet Prostheses

The foot plays a critical role in everyday life. It is a driving force and has the complex roles of balance, control and propulsion. During walking the heel contacts the ground first, followed by the metatarsal and finally the tissue of the five toes. Even partial amputation of a foot causes different problems because the general function of the foot is to support the body and allow walking. This is why the support of an apparatus such as a prosthetic is necessary.

A full or partial foot prosthesis from SkinFeel™ by Silab Prosthetics helps to return functionality of the foot, aesthetic and operation designed to provide better stability. SkinFeel™ foot 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 feet 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.

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

Custom Full & Partial Foot Prostheses

Custom full and partial feet prostheses are made entirely to measure to be a precise and accurate copy of the client’s opposite foot with a hyper-realistic result that mimics the shape and surface of the skin (veins, age, pigmentation, freckles etc) of the healthy foot. This silicone foot prosthesis is intended for people looking for a foot 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.

Semi-Custom Full & Partial Foot Prostheses

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