Living with a partial hand or finger amputation
A person is often unprepared for the amputation of a finger or part of the hand as the result of an accident.

Our hands combine sensory, motor and social functions. They are permanently visible – a kind of business card for the first impression. Are the hands clean? Are the fingernails groomed? We often shake hands when meeting people. A successful business deal is sealed with a handshake. How do I handle my amputation in such situations?

Today, amputated limbs can be replaced by a hand and finger prosthesis. The prostheses are made of silicone and are very realistic looking. A silicone hand or finger prosthesis is often not even noticeable at first glance.
In some cases, a prosthesis for the hand is also called an epithesis. We use the term prosthesis on this website.
