The Amazing Benefits of Pediatric Prosthetics

As a parent, you want the best for your child, including positive growth and development. Whether your child has limb differences, brachycephaly, or deformational plagiocephaly, is an amputee, or has any other physical impairment or disability, there’s no doubt that he or she has experienced unique challenges. Considerable physical and mental modifications may be necessary to play, go to school, or even just walk. A lack of self-confidence can also be problematic.

Whether congenital or the result of an injury, a disease, or surgery, if your son or daughter has an impairment, a prosthetic device can enable him or her to participate in the same activities as “typically” developing peers, such as walking, running, jumping, reaching, and eating. The following are some of the most notable benefits that custom pediatric prosthetics can provide:

  • Increased mobility
  • Enhanced comfort
  • Improved independence
  • Greater self-esteem


At Procare Prosthetics, we offer prostheses for all ages and stages of life. We are honored to offer the support that youngsters need to meet their full potential and achieve their dreams.

An Overview of the Pediatric Prosthetic Journey

While every child’s journey is unique, the following is a basic overview of what you and your child can expect during his or her pediatric prosthetic journey with Procare Orthopedics:

  • Initial consultation and assessment. The process will begin with a comprehensive consultation. One of our certified practitioners will gather information related to your child’s condition and will obtain accurate measurements. Depending on the type of prosthesis that is needed, casting may also be performed.
  • Fitting. Once the prosthesis has been constructed, it will be fitted to your child to ensure it fits properly and comfortably. If necessary, adjustments will be made.
  • Evaluations. Because children grow at such a rapid pace, regular evaluations will be necessary. During these evaluations, your child’s progress will be assessed. If it is determined that modifications are necessary, new measurements will be taken so that your child can be re-fitted with a properly fitted prosthesis.
