What is nail prosthetics?
Nail prosthetics is a procedure where a prosthetic nail plate is applied in case of a mechanical damage of nails or nail diseases.
It was developed by Mr. Josef Greppmayer (1901–1977) and was also patented it in 1953. Because of constant development and improvement of method it became the optimal diverse and adequate method of prosthetic nail application today.
Nail prosthetics and “Unguisan” plastic are closely connected. The name was put together from the two Latin words ‘unguis’ (it means nail) and ‘sanus’ (it means healthy) and therefore reflects what is the primary aim of the treatment.
