Prosthesis (i.e. – artificial body members) – parts thereof – or ai – Breast prosthesis – Implantable
A breast prosthesis to be worn on the body of a person who has had a mastectomy includes a soft-elastic prosthetic body made of two plastic sheets which are connected to each other along a common edge, with a plastic mass being contained hollow-free between the plastic sheets. The prosthetic body has a front side resembling in its form the natural breast and a rear side which faces the wearer's body. A fabric member covers the rear side and is attached solely to the peripheral edge of the plastic sheets of the prosthetic body to thereby increase the comfort of wearing the breast prosthesis. The fabric member is suitably made of thermoplastic material, with the welding of the plastic sheets and the welding of the fabric member with the plastic sheets being carried out in a single working step.
