Lower Extremity Prosthetics

Transtibial (Below Knee) A transtibial prosthesis is an artificial limb that replaces a leg missing below the knee and commonly called prosthetic leg below the knee . Transtibial amputees are usually able to regain normal movement more readily than someone with a transfemoral amputation, due in large part to retaining the knee, which allows for easier movement.

In the prosthetic industry a trans-tibial prosthetic leg is often referred to as a “BK” or below the knee prosthesis.

Transfemoral (Above Knee) A transfemoral prosthesis is an artificial limb that replaces a leg missing above the knee. In general, a transfemoral amputee must use approximately 80% more energy to walk than a person with two whole legs. This is due to the complexities in movement associated with the knee. In newer and more improved designs, after employing hydraulics, carbon fiber, mechanical linkages, motors, computer microprocessors, and innovative combinations of these technologies give more control to the user.

In the prosthetic industry a trans-femoral best prosthetic leg is often referred to as an “AK” or above the knee prosthesis.

Products for Lower Extremity

Microprocessors controlled knees provide a more sophisticated method of control to a prosthetic knee. These more complex knee joints are designed to help you walk with a much more stable and efficient gait that more closely resembles a natural walking pattern.

Microprocessor Controlled Foot/Ankle.   These foot/ankle components have small computer-controlled sensors that process information from both the individual’s limb and the surrounding environment to adjust to various needs. … Powered feet provide propulsion during ambulation to enhance walking capabilities in real-time.

Carbon Fiber Dynamic Response Feet.  Dynamic response feet are usually made from stiff carbon fibre elements which act like springs: deforming under load and returning to their original shape when unloaded…. While the feet do not store energy, they do return some of the energy developed during walking. This lowers overall energy expenditure.

Adjustable Heel Height

An adjustable heel height foot allows the wearer to use different shoes easily. With the push of a button, the foot can be adjusted to accommodate the different shoes.

Innovative Above-Knee and Below-Knee Design Sockets

The prosthetic socket is the device that joins your residual limb (stump) to the prosthesis. The socket is made just for you, according to the condition and shape of the residual limb.

Ischial containment socket: The socket has lower edges than typical transfemoral sockets and is as flexible as possible allowing muscles to move comfortably within the socket as they contract during activity and to improve comfort during sitting. The socket is held securely to the leg by suction from a vacuum pump, which makes for a firmer connection between the residual limb and prosthesis. Increased comfort, hip range of motion, and connectivity between the residual limb and prosthesis results in better functional performance for individual.
