2018 Australian Hand Therapy Association Conference
Friday October 19th - Sunday October 21st
This year we will be exhibiting at the 2018 Australian Hand Therapy Association Conference where we will be showcasing a range of upper limb prosthetic and orthotic devices.
The theme for the 2018 conference is Reaching for the Future: Innovation and technology in hand therapy practice. This event will provide hand therapy professionals access to recognised experts in the field of hand therapy as they share their expertise and knowledge, explain their tools and techniques and showcase their innovative ideas.
Workshop: Functional Partial Finger Solutions - Naked Prosthetics
Friday @ 1pm to 1:30pm
Naked Prosthetics designs and manufactures high-quality prosthetic devices specifically for finger loss. Our mission is to assist people with digit amputation(s) and positively impact their lives with fully articulating high-quality custom finger prostheses. Our product aims to restore the ability to perform most tasks, supporting job retention and an active lifestyle. Our customers have lost fingers to power tools, equipment malfunctions, random accidents, and infections; in some cases, multiple digits have been lost. Historically, finger prosthetics have been considered a second tier of prosthetics due to the lack of meaningful functionality. Naked Prosthetics now provides a viable functional prosthesis, versus a passive cosmetic solution. Our design mimics finger motion and utilizes the remainder of an amputee’s digit to power the device.
In the workshop we will review the patient population, indication and contraindications for the devices, feature and benefits of the device, case studies and outcomes post fitting of the prosthesis, and then we will have the opportunity to see the devices and see how they function
