New technology usually involves a new production process that requires training for technicians. Fortunately, that’s not the case with shaping a transradial forearm prosthesis. At Ottobock, we have been using the same process for about 40 years. The industry-wide process for shaping a transradial forearm has gone virtually unchanged because it provides excellent results whether the prosthesis is passive, body-powered, or myoelectric. That’s pretty rare in an industry that is quick to adapt to any improvement in quality or efficiency, so most technicians appreciate a reliable process that stays within their skillset and comfort zone for an infrequent project like an upper-limb prosthesis.
