RealLifeSkin™ finger prostheses are custom designed for each individual to ensure proper fit, accuracy and maximum function. They are attached by suction and form fitting, usually donned in the morning and removed at the end of the day. All RealLifeSkin™ finger prostheses are filled internally with a semi-soft silicone which is conformed around the remaining portion of the finger, filling the missing area. This formed silicone acts as a "three-dimensional puzzle piece" which cradles the residual, allowing vibration from the tip of the prosthesis to transfer to the nerves of the residual digit. This vibration transfer allows wearers to feel like the prosthesis is an extension of themselves, rather than a foreign attachment. This feeling is called proprioception. Proprioception enables many partial finger amputees the ability to type on a keyboard, write with a pen or pencil, or perform other tasks that were once very difficult or impossible.
