14ELMT… An Element of Design.
14th Element Fabrication is a full-service prosthetics fabrication company serving the Orthotics & Prosthetics (O&P) industry. We create complete, custom prostheses that clinicians can proudly deliver and that users will feel confident wearing.
We take great pride in providing thoughtfully designed, aesthetically beautiful, hand-crafted prosthetic solutions tailored to the individual.
Silicon [Si], the main component of silicone, is the 14th element on The Periodic Table of elements. Being part of the carbon family, it makes silicone one of the most biocompatible materials for carbon-based beings like us. Our business began by specializing in silicone prostheses, so 14th Element seemed to be the perfect name. We now provide full-service fabrication and offer more than just silicone products, but we still love the name and its roots!
We firmly believe that every good prosthesis begins with a comfortable, secure, well-fit socket. Silicone has numerous benefits over traditional thermoplastics and offers users unparalleled function and comfort. 14th Element Fabrication uses rolled silicone, injected silicone or a combination of the two to create our custom sockets and liners. Reach out to us to discuss a custom silicone solution for your client.
14th Element Fabrication is pleased to now offer full preparatory and definitive prostheses with the addition of carbon fiber and thermoplastic frames to our product line. Carbon fiber is a strong, durable, lightweight framing material that reduces fatigue for the user. 14ELMT offers fully customizable framing finishes and graphics to make a truly one-of-a-kind prosthesis that matches the user’s personal aesthetic.
Struggling with a difficult case?
With our many years of Upper Limb experience, we have seen (…and developed) many creative design solutions to unique challenges.
The versatility of silicone & customization available for our carbon fiber frames enable us to provide products that are as varied and unique as the client. Need a socket that has areas of rigidity for structure, but also extra cushion in sensitive areas? Oh, and you need it to have an integrated air bladder and custom artwork on a sleek carbon fiber frame…We can do that and much, much more.
