“I found out that I needed an operation for a back problem which was causing severe pain to my left leg from the sciatic nerve. After speaking to my GP and realizing I was getting nowhere I decided to take the matter into my own hands as I could hardly walk. After speaking to private consultants and realizing that without private medical insurance I was not going to be seen to in this country without shelling out around £20,000 I decided to look elsewhere. I decided to look into having the operation privately in India and was fortunate to come across Mediescapes India. From my initial enquiry when I e-mailed my MRI results to Mediescapes India I was amazed ..more.”

Prosthesis are custom fabricated high definition silicone cosmesis are now available with us. We now offers custom fabricated cosmetic fingers / partial hand prosthesis as well as lower limbs.

All our cosmetic restorations are custom fabricated from a plan duplicate of the patient's stump to achieve proper proportions. Each cosmetic is sculpted to meet individual requirements and has an extra ordinarily realistic appearance and feel.

Our procedure require three dimensional impression of the entire surface of both affected and contralateral sides. Our fabrication technique involves coloring the silicone material itself prior to sculpting, as opposed to surface painting. This process allows the layering of different shades of silicone to provide translucent finish to the cosmesis similar to real human tissue.

In India, 220,000 people live with a upper and or lower limb amputation, and 28,000 amputations are performed each year. Amputation is not a disease, but it can be the consequence of a disease.

Upper and or Lower limb amputations are carried out for a variety of reasons, including vascular disorders, consequences of injury, malignant tumours, infections, congenital deformities and accidents. However, the vast majority (80 percent) can be attributed to circulatory disorders of the arteries. Accompanying conditions such as diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure, and such factors as nicotine abuse, overweight and age also play a role. Our medi prosthetic modular components help give patients back as much mobility as possible and increase their quality of life.

Artificial Limbs and prosthesis products are professionally designed according to the requirements of patients. For the first time our products are available directly with in the reach of the patients. We have appliance to suit the need for every common injury and disease of musculo-skeletal system.

A word about lower limb prosthesis:-

About Rehabilitation: Many people who undergo amputation are initially concerned with the physical and emotional trauma of the surgery and the attendant flurry of medical procedures. Concerns about pain, recovery and adjustment rapidly give way to practical questions about how to get around at home, how to get back to work, how does a prosthetic limb really function and indeed what does it look like.
 
About the Clinic: The members of the rehabilitation team are professionals in their specific area and patient will find that they are happy to answer questions regarding your treatment and to provide patient with information including details of support groups and special interest topics. A valuable part of the rehabilitation process is the interaction with other amputees and their families. The firsthand experiences of established amputees can provide not only understanding and support, but a wealth of tips on living with your prosthesis. This is also a good time for your family or carer to talk through some of the issues of concern to them.
 
About the role of Doctor: Patient will be assessed first by a doctor, specialised in rehabilitation, who will note details of patient medical history, current medical needs and impairment status: i.e. position of amputation and condition of the stump (residual limb). The doctor will also be interested in patient lifestyle and expectations so that the choice of prosthetic treatment and rehabilitation can be assessed accordingly.
 
About role of Prosthetist : The prosthetist is trained in the design, fabrication and fitting of artificial limbs (prostheses). He/she will be interested in the condition of patient stump, patient general fitness and patient prosthetic requirements so that preparation of patient first prosthesis can begin. The working relationship and communication between patient and patient prosthetist is important as patient will be involved with them on a long term basis for prosthetic care and maintenance, necessary adjustments and future prostheses as required.
 
About role of Physiotherapist: The physiotherapist will co-ordinate patient early limb care and mobility programme and will teach patient how to walk on his/her new prosthesis (gait training). Patient will most probably have started treatment with a physiotherapist very soon after surgery when patient will have been instructed in suitable joint and body positioning so as to maintain good range of limb movement.
 
About role of Occupational Therapist: The role of the occupational therapist is to ensure that patient is suitably prepared for back home and, if applicable, work environment. This may entail visits to patient home for assessment purposes as patient may need some additional equipment to assist him/her with mobility and safety around the house. If this is not possible especially in foreign patient cases then it is better to bring video footage of home environment or pics. of interior and exteriors of various rooms of patient home. If  patient will be using an upper limb prosthesis then the occupational therapist will train patient in efficient use of the prosthesis.
 
About role of Nurse: The nurse will check patient personal details including blood pressure and weight and will ensure that any limb dressings patient may be using are satisfactory. If patient have a medical condition which requires regular treatment such as diabetes, then be sure to tell the nurse so that treatment is not forgotten whilst at the clinic.
 
A word about our Prosthetic Programme
 
Walking: Gait is the term used to describe the process of walking. It comprises two basic phases:
 
Stance Phase -
 
The period from heel strike to mid stance and through to toe off, when the body weight is supported on the leg. In stance phase the prosthesis will be expected to support the entire body weight and if one is walking quickly, momentum will increase these forces to well above body weight. As an example if the user weighs 65 kg. (~143 lb) then, as the speed of walking and therefore momentum increases, the weight going through the prosthesis could be as much as 104 kg. (~229 lb).
 
The components which make up a prosthesis must be strong enough to withstand the frequent application of very high loads which one would expect to occur in normal walking, and yet have the ability to cushion impact so as to reduce jarring.
 
Component weight is an important factor in the design of a prosthesis since the use of lighter components will normally require less energy expenditure for mobility. Modern prosthetic components take advantage of a number of materials developed for the space industry such as: carbon fiber, which has a high strength to weight ratio, and polymers, which can be manipulated to give a variety of properties from cushioning to flexibility in structures.
 
Where possible, components which go into building a prosthesis will be designed to function without expending excess user energy and to return energy when required, such as an element of push off as the prosthetic toe leaves the ground.
 
To maintain the knee joint in a stable position during weight bearing, prostheses for trans-femoral level and higher may contain a braking device which provides some stabilization to prevent the knee flexing whilst body weight is being supported during early stance. These units are weight activated and will allow the knee to bend when the weight is off the limb.
 
Swing Phase -
 
The period from toe-off, when the knee flexes to allow the foot to clear the ground and accelerate forward, to when the heel strikes the ground for the next step. The muscles that mobilise the knee normally assist this function. The time for the swing phase should ideally speed up as walking speed increases otherwise the limb swings in slow arcs like a pendulum and results in an uneven cadence. Prosthetic knee units often contain a device which controls the swing phase period so that the prosthesis will respond to different walking or running speeds. These units may be electronically controlled pneumatic or hydraulic devices that are programmed optimally for each individual.

Reconstructing the human faces by Tissue - Integrated Prosthesis are also handled by us.

Case 1
A young man underwent surgical excision of a malignant melanoma that necessitated removal of his external ear. The defect was covered with a split-thickness skin graft. During the procedure, two implants were placed in the mastoid process, and skin-penetrating abutments were connected. After healing, a bar construction was attached to the abutments, and the silicone prosthesis was fabricated. The total time from surgical excision of the tumor to complete rehabilitation was 3 months. One advantage with the implant-retained prosthesis in such a patient is that any local recurrence will be readily detected.

Case 2
A mid aged woman had an orbital defect after surgical resection of a malignant tumor. Implants were placed in the bone, and low-profile skin-penetrating abutments were connected to support the prosthesis. Because the available space was limited, retention with magnets was chosen for this patient.

Case 3
An elderly man in poor general health had a carcinoma of his nose surgically resected with use of local anesthesia, during which a single implant was placed for prosthesis retention. Three months after the resection, an abutment, with magnet for the support, was attached to the implant, and a nose prosthesis was fabricated. For such a patient living a quiet life, this retention proved to be satisfactory. In more active patients, other retention arrangements probably would be used.

The medipro®flex carbon feet are suitable for users with all walking speeds and real "powerhouses".

Higher stability, lower weight and elastic return force – due to the design – allow leg amputees to save energy when walking and offer a virtually physiological gait. As there are no screw connections in the forefoot lever, no irritating noises are produced when walking and there is no “neutral point” on roll-off. The continuous spring action without any mechanical interruption eases transition from the stance to the swing phase and makes the gait more dynamic and rhythmic as well as stronger and safer.

Dynamically robust power packs medipro®flex feet absorb shock, and store and return energy. Users of mobility class 2 to 4 up to a body weight of 166 kg – depending on foot type – can benefit from the new technology.

Features such as the rounded toe front and the continuously segmented construction provide more physiological and smoother roll-off properties, better mobility and therefore safer walking – even on uneven ground.

The proximal pyramid adapter on the foot makes it easier for the orthopaedic technician to adjust the prosthesis, so simplifying optimum adaptation to each user's needs.

Many user's wish to be able to wear shoes with different heel heights after leg amputation. The medipro®flex E foot allows this uncomplicated adjustment. Simply by releasing a metal button the foot can be adjusted to a heel height of 0-5 cm. There is no longer much of a problem with any of the season's fashions from going barefoot to wearing high-leg shoes - even without changing the static structure of the prosthesis.

Under Upper Prosthetic we have wide range of silicon with matching body color products:

-
We help patients with Osteointegration (complete ear flaps replacement)
- We help patients undergone nose removal with aesthetic nose replacements

medipro® Knee joints
Correct selection of the individual functional components of the prosthesis will meetthe individual requirements of each user.A wide variety of versions of themedipro® knee joint has therefore been created to take account of specific user requirements. medipro® knee joints have a stable aluminum framework construction and low weight, giving optimum suitability for individual prosthesis provision.

An example of a knee joint that ensures a high level of safety, developed specifically for wearers with this requirement, is the medipro® OFM2 Safety knee Joint.

Users in the higher weight classes can also be fitted with medipro® knee joints.

The medipro® OH6, for example, is used for those with a weight of up to 136 kg and tolerates increased loading due to the high functional requirement.

medipro® Hip joint
Development of the medipro® HM3 hip joint combined functionally with the ESSA carbon system represents a milestone in the care of this user group. The complex composition of the hip disarticulation prosthesis stores sufficient energy at each step to assist the rollover process of the prosthetic leg in a physiological manner.

Under Lower Prosthetic we have wide range of products:

- Hip Disarticulation Prosthesis
- Flex Carban Foot
- Above-knee Prosthesis
- Knee Disarticulartion Prosthesis
- Below Knee Prosthesis

The loss of extremities represents not only a physical defect for those concerned but also a mental and social challenge.

In addition to the functional replacement of the lost leg by individually selected prostheses, cosmetic covering plays a particularly major role. The medipro® cosmetic foam cover ca be used for functional covering of both below-knee and above-knee prostheses.

The soft, skin-coloured medipro® cosmetic stockings, made in tough quality micro-fibre with a silicone top band for a secure hold, provide the finishing touch. 

Under amputation cases we have wide range of silicon products:

- Amputee Finger replacement 
- Female and Male Hands replacement with wide range of mobility options
- Passive hand replacements

Protective Silicon Covers

Many users have expressed a wish to have a prosthesis with optimal protection from environmental influences, with a cosmetically appealing appearance.

We have succeeded in achieving this with the development of the Skinergy™ protective silicone cover. Skinergy™ protective silicone cover is a stable, easy-to-clean cover for use with below-knee prostheses. Skinergy™ protects the modular components of the below-knee prosthesis and is available in nine different covers, two different leg circumferences and in foot sizes 22 – 30. The protective silicone cover can be used with feet with closed or split toe fronts. With Skinergy™ we can achieve cosmetically realistic results.

We guarantee you a secure connection. The medipro® adapter range shows convincing high quality, low adapter weight and high load tolerance. These stable modular adapters are suitable for all mobility classes.

TIAL® - maximum quality demand
Perfect design combined with the new TIAL® alloy mean maximum stability with minimum adapter weight. Look for the TIAL® marking on the side of the adapters.

Precise adjustment is the key
The medipro® 4-hole pyramid adapter M.625.400 and the medipro® 4-hole pyramid receiver M.626.400 have a rotary adjustment device that makes adjustment simple, uncomplicated and rapid for the prosthetic. Just loosening two fixing screws is enough to allow full adjustability. The static structure of the prosthesis remains unchanged.
 

IKF Adapter
The medipro® IKF adapter (=Initial Knee Flexion) is used in a modular configuration in combination with the medipro® prosthetic knee joints OHP3, OH5, OH5 plus and OH6. Its design allows it to sense the anatomical heel strike angle without activating the knee joint function. This therefore places less load on the user´s joint chain and protects it, so that walking is safe and requires the application of less force. Sloping and uneven ground are no longer any obstacle.

medipro® Clever Bone System - more mobility for less mobile users
The patented medipro Clever Bone system is optimised to the needs of less mobile (elderly) prosthesis users. For amputees this means a gentle, strength-conserving gait, as the energy used on heel strike is used to move the prosthesis in the direction of travel. The shock-absorbent properties reduce the load on the residual limb. In addition, the shock-absorbing energy-returning properties protect the entire joint chain.

medipro® ESSA Karbonsystem - more dynamic for mobile users
The medipro® ESSA Carbon system (ESSA= Energy-storing -- Shock-absorbing), with its shock-absorbing, energy-returning properties allows the user to regain a physiological gait pattern.

Its elasticity allows ESSA to reduce heel-strike forces, thus enabling the user to achieve a more energy-saving gait by reducing pressure transmission.

It is suitable for users with moderate to high activity, available in four hardness grades and is used to fit users who have undergone hip disarticulation and above- or below-knee amputation.

Particularly when combined with the medipro® HM3 hip joint, this functional unit considerably facilitates management of the prosthesis and therefore results in an improved gait pattern.
