Attachment Methods


Each prosthesis can be attached with adhesive, or with "the band" (with or without a band+ method). When you receive your prosthesis, you receive instructions and parts for the various current methods and you can decide which you prefer.




Method 1:  Medical Adhesive

It is likely that adhesive will work for you even if it didn’t work with other prostheses you might have tried. Some prostheses are made with materials which are not compatible with adhesive. Others are simply too stiff to allow for adhesion.

 

For more information see Adhesives



Method 2:  The Band

 

t2 prostheses are equipped to be held in place with a simple elastic band.

The Band is worn like a ‘jock strap’ - the prosthesis as the ‘cup’ - held comfortably and securely to the body.

The band is a soft, thin, translucent, swim (water, chlorine, salt and sweat) safe, very durable elastic which does not tug on body hairs or chafe skin.

The band passes through the top of the prosthesis and around the waist.

To hold the scrotum closer to the body, two more pieces of band can be attached to pass around each hip and connect with the waistband.


The prosthesis has the connection parts built in, and comes with detailed instructions and enough of the band to last a few months. The elastic band is easily available online and inexpensive.



Method 3: The Band+ elastics


Is the band method + two small elastic bands to hold the prosthesis tight against the pelvis.
The hair elastics are connected to the band, the prosthesis, and a small bit of pubic hair. The prosthesis stays directly in place on the body.

As the hair grows, you can pull the hair through to tighten the connection. It doesn't need to be removed. The system is fairly camouflaged as the elastic is under the hair close to the skin.


Method 4: The Band+ string


The prostheses are now soft, malleable and light enough to be held securely in place with nothing but a bit of cotton string and your pubic hair. But, because it's hard to tie the string in a way that doesn't tug on the hair, I'm including this method here, as an addition to the Band (to use this method well, please use it in conjunction with the Band).

 

 

Once connected, you just need to adjust every few days to few weeks.
The string and hair are attached under the prosthesis, so the attachment is not seen.

 

 


Connection holes for use with the band and the band+ methods are built into each prosthesis.
