Silicon is derived from inorganic silica, or sand. Silicon was obtained as a result of the processing of sand, the raw material of silicon, with oxygen atoms. Silicone is one of the rare substances whose structure does not deteriorate and whose properties do not lose their properties in large temperature and humidity differences. Although silicon provides excellent resistance to low and high temperatures, it also shows resistance against ozone, weather conditions, UV rays, acid, base, oil, fluids and food products.
The most important feature of silicone is that it has a structure that can adapt to the human body. The main characteristics of silicone prosthesis-orthoses are tissue compatibility and non-allergy. The ability to achieve the desired color also gives an excellent result. The required parts of the material can be adjusted as soft or hard.
Cosmetic silicone prosthesis application is exactly the same shape and appearance of the missing limb. With special impression techniques, even the smallest details can be transferred to the prosthesis, adding feathers, any scar etc. provides all kinds of close-to-nature views.
