For clients who are located outside Manitoba and that do not wish to travel, custom finger prosthetics may be provided by utilizing Lifeart’s distance fitting process.
Clients interested in the distance fitting process must email photos of their hands to Lifeart. We will advise if they are a suitable candidate for a distance fitting.
Clients will receive a finger impression kit that contains all the materials necessary to take molds of affected and non-affected fingers. Detailed instructions are provided to assist clients. Clients may also contact Lifeart by phone or email for help completing the finger impression kit.
The total cost per custom finger prosthesis depends on the complexity of the prosthesis to be provided. The cost includes the impression kit, one custom finger prosthesis and shipping. Shipping costs to return the completed impression kit to Lifeart are the client’s responsibility.
A cheque for the total cost must be included with the impression kit when it is returned to Lifeart.
The process may take up to 12 weeks depending on when the kit is returned to Lifeart. Every effort will be made to complete prosthetics in a timely manner.
Finger prosthetics are guaranteed for 1 year from the time of purchase for manufacturing defects only. Care instructions are provided with the finished prosthesis.
Please contact us for next steps. An estimate will be provided and must be approved before any work is started.
