After losing my hand in a farm accident 4 years ago, the single hardest part of the ordeal was trying to cope with the reality that I was no longer “normal”. I felt as if my identity through others’ eyes for the rest of my life would be determined solely by my loss of a limb. I felt that behind closed doors, I was simply referred to as “the guy who is missing a hand”. My identity was no longer judged upon my abilities, personality, character traits, and how I treated other people. It was just that I was missing a hand. I was embarrassed in public situations and did everything I could to hide the fact that I was missing my left hand.
I did extensive research on prosthetics companies that made custom colored prosthetics. I found out that there were significant differences in quality between companies. I found that Alatheia was on the cutting edge of technology and would produce a product that would be more realistic and last longer than any of their competitors.
I want to thank the talented, caring, amazing people at Alatheia for giving me so much more than a realistic hand. I want to thank them for giving me the opportunity to lead the rest of my life free from the daily burdens that came to me the day my left hand was amputated. I want to thank them for giving me back my freedom to be me again.

A client’s greatest desire is to be complete or whole again. The loss of an upper extremity such as a finger or hand may have severe physical and emotional consequences for an individual. It is a serious threat to the individual’s core identity. Fingers and hands are often the only exposed part of the body besides the face. Unfortunately, many individuals with amputations steer clear of public places, intimate relationships, and chronically hide their residual limb or even avoid employment opportunities due to their condition.
There are many choices today in prosthetic rehabilitation. Studies have shown that professional health care providers have a different perspective regarding function, comfort, and aesthetics than that of the patient. In our experience, talking with thousands of amputees and professionals, we have found this to be accurate.
Our prosthetics are specially created for each hand amputee, as they are custom designed and formulated out of our high-strength hypoallergenic medical grade silicone. Made by Alatheia Prosthetics, each Dermatos® prosthesis is meticulously sized and sculpted right down to the fingerprints, skin pores and fingernails. Dermatos® nails are extremely durable and may even be painted and treated like real nails.
