Alatheia Serves Clients World Wide
Alatheia markets several prosthetic technologies for amputees throughout the world, but among the most widely known is the highly functional Dermatos® prosthesis line. The Dermatos® name is used to indicate that these products are made to look like skin, whether finger, hand or foot prosthetics. Dermatos® prosthetic devices and prosthetic skin are specifically designed for each amputee’s functional needs.
Dermatos® prostheses boast top-of-the-line results for all four of the benchmarks of prostheses
Custom sculpting gives each prosthesis elements of character that help it to “blend in”. Each finger is precisely shaped, the lines under the knuckle are replicated, and fingerprints go all the way down (not just the tips). Crafted fingernails are natural to the individual and give our prosthesis its special “signature.”
A finger usually has color variation throughout its length. Whether this means a rosier color tone towards the tips, or a blotchy look to the palm-side skin, each finger is detailed and unique. Alatheia’s attention to detail in painting colors lets your prosthesis reflect these features.
Alatheia utilizes custom fitting for efficient function and necessary protection. The inside of the prosthesis is created to fit directly onto a specific and individual residuum. This will help the prosthesis stay on properly, and will also protect the flesh underneath even as it helps to restore the finger’s function.
Prostheses made with inexpensive silicone will tear and quickly be rendered useless. Alatheia Prostheses are created out of medical grade silicone, which is stronger and prevents the skin from becoming irritated. This also allows the prosthesis to be stable in shape and size. The silicone is painted from the inside to reduce wear and tear.
