Medical - Medical: Instruments / Shoulder Treatment Device
German term or phrase: Prothesenkörper
"Durch Zahlreiche Befestigungspunkte am ***Prothesenkörper*** können die knöchernen Teile der Rotatorenmanschette in anatomischer Position stabil und ohne Kompromittierung der Restdurchblutung übungsstabil befestigt werden."

From a text about some sort of device or prosthesis for shoulder injuries. I don't like "prosthetic body" as a translation here, because it's too ambiguous; it might mean an entire artificial body, whereas only a little prosthesis is being referred to. So need a credible alternative to "body". TIA for your help.
