Use of Prosthesis
Putting Your Finger Prosthesis On
Apply a thin layer of the Vaseline to the appropriate areas. Gently push the prosthesis on, making sure all air is pushed out. If the prosthesis slides or rotates after the application, then too much lubricant was used. When using jewelry to cover transition lines, always put the jewelry on before putting on the prosthesis.
Removing Your Finger Prosthesis
Remove your prosthesis by pinching the prosthesis toward the open end. This will allow air to travel into the prosthesis as you are slowly pulling the prosthesis off. It may be necessary to repeat the pinch and pull again if the suction is not broken. When using jewelry, use extra care when removing the prosthesis.
Use of Prosthesisy
Proper use of your prosthesis is very important for the longevity of your prosthesis. Never sleep with your prosthesis. Constant wear of your prosthesis for extended periods of time may cause skin irritation. Do not wear your prosthesis over any unhealed cuts or sores, as they will increase your risk of infection.
