Passive and active devices

For many children and young people they do not want or require an active prosthetic device, rather a passive device adequately meets their needs.

A passive prosthetic device is also known as a cosmetic device. They have limited or no moving parts making them ideal for children. Sports and activity specific prosthesis are also passive devices. There is a huge range of terminal devices/hands available to children and young people to enable them to achieve in sports. Whether your child loves to take part in gymnastics or rock climbing we have solutions to support them.
