Attachment Methods


Each prosthesis can be attached with adhesive, or with the band (with or without band+). When you receive your prosthesis, you can decide which you prefer.




Method 1:   Medical Adhesive

t2 prostheses are designed for optimal adhesion with 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 prosthesis are made with materials which are not compatible with adhesive. Others are simply too stiff to allow for adhesion.

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, around each leg and connected at the back of the scrotum.  

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



Method 3: The Band+


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.

This may sound painful - but it isn't. I tested various hair-attach ideas for 3 years before making this method public in October 2015. Since then all prostheses have included the connections for the Band+ attachment method.
