Above Knee Prostheses
with top quality components from Otto Bock and Ossur
An above knee prosthesis consists of five components:
- ● Socket
- ● Knee
- ● Connection between socket and foot
- ● Foot
- ● Cosmetic cover
Our sockets are hand-casted total contact Ischial weight-bearing or Ischial containment.
The socket is the most important part of the prosthesis.
We aim to provide maximum comfort while applying sound bio-mechanical principles.
There is a great selection of knees available.
The world is small and transport is fast. Any knee can be selected
based on the
requirements of the client.
We are independent of any supplier or company.
For the connection between the socket,
knee and foot we use titanium modular components. They are light, strong and durable. They make fine-tuning of alignment possible at any stage. This increases walking
The foot choice depends on the activities of the client. Modern generation feet
are energy storing which makes walking and running much easier. Also height adjustable
feet are available for different heel heights.
Some knees function
better with specific feet.
We spend extra time and effort achieving an excellent cosmetic finish.
