Bloorview Kids Rehab teamed up with the Canadian Hand Emulation Research Organization in what was the first step in an effort to determine the feasibility of initiating a multidisciplinary program for artistic silicone hand prosthetics at Bloorview Kids Rehab. If successful, this program will give the patient access to all specialties involved in hand rehabilitation under one roof.

Although the concept of silicone hand prosthetics is not new, this program will take a look at a variety of silicones that offer a different range of physical properties not commonly utilized for this type of prosthesis in Canada. The benefit of this program is that it will provide access to care for a product that Canadians quite often have to turn to outside countries to service.

Currently this type of product can most often be found in Canada via a mail order service from the United States, which de-emphasizes the importance of the provider/client relationship.  The emphasis of this program will be on patient centered care to provide high quality, customized artistic hand and finger prostheses.
