Silicone Technicians At 
The London
Prosthetic Centre


At The London Prosthetic Centre we provide the very best in prosthetic products, and as technology and user requirements change we have modified our manufacturing techniques and service offerings to best suit their specifications. 

Artists in their own right, all of our silicone technicians are exceptionally skilled and can make any design, colour and shape required in silicone. From new material development to performance testing, our technicians often create more “avant-garde” designs to further develop their skills and identify improved ways of working.

“With the variety of prosthetic limbs available to users today, patients have an exceptional choice of what kind of product they would like, whether it be functional or cosmetic, but increasingly patients tell us how important appearance is for their prosthesis. This is why we invest in devising the most naturalistic coverings for both upper and lower limb prostheses. Our coverings are designed bespoke to individual requirements, then sculpted in-house and in consultation with the patient, enabling our custom silicone products to meet the patient’s exacting standards.” Abdo Haidar
