If you can dream it, we can architect it

RHEO 3

The RHEO KNEE 3 takes away the need for a conscious thought process, allows for more natural movement and is less taxing on energy than other lower leg prostheses. With improved extension assist, smart gait, magnetorheologic technology for instant response and extension lock for security and comfort, the RHEO KNEE 3 artificial leg will allow the patient to experience a high level of safety and support.

TOTAL KNEE 1900

The Total knee 1900 artificial leg accommodates everyday walking requirements. The swing phase is controlled and steady, and combined with the extension promoter which assists in limiting heel rise and moving the knee into a fully extended position, a natural knee motion is achieved. This capability is impressive as far as artificial limbs go by mimicking a natural knee movement which is difficult to reconstitute with technology.

TOTAL KNEE 2000

The Total knee 2000 is a strong and durable knee for artificial legs, with superior shock absorption, increased comfort and a more natural gait. Mid-swing shortening prevents hip-hike and swing control accommodates changes in walking speed while adjustable stance flexion reduces shock and stress on the residual limb which many other above knee prostheses don’t cater for.

Honesty and authenticity are the hallmarks of great architecture.

What is a breast prosthesis?

Many female breast cancer survivors have to undergo mastectomies (the removal of one or both breasts). Whether preventive or as part of a treatment plan, this surgical intervention can be very traumatic. Meintjes and Neethling strives to restore the beauty and confidence of our patients who have undergone mastectomies with sensitivity and empathy.

A breast prosthesis is designed and made to replace either the complete breast that was removed or part thereof. They fit into the pocket of a specially-designed mastectomy bra, or can be made to be attached to the skin and worn with a normal bra. Breast prostheses are made of soft silicone gel that is coated with a thin film layer. The outside is soft and smooth and may contain a nipple outline.

 

First weeks after surgery:

Breast surgery – and sometimes radiotherapy – can make the chest area extremely sensitive. That is why you will probably wear a fabric-covered temporary prosthesis (some people call this a “softie” or “comphy”) in the first few weeks after your surgery. You can make it look more natural and feel more secure by adjusting the stuffing and either stitching it to your bra’s bottom or keeping it in place with a safety pin. Remember that your shoulder may feel stiff and sensitive at first – we recommend a “softy” that fits comfortably and is easy to put on.

Once your scar has healed completely and the swelling has subsided (this takes between six and eight weeks) we will fit you with a permanent breast prosthesis and provide you with a properly fitting bra.

Orthotists / Prosthetists are professionally qualified people with tertiary qualifications who can assess and treat the physical and functional restrictions of people with illnesses and disabilities, including a mastectomy.
