Amputations that are done below the knee joint are known as Trans-tibial amputations. In order to obtain the most possible outcome for the patient and to enable the final fitting of the prosthesis to happen in an optimum amount of time, an ideal stump length needs to be achieved.
The principal objective of providing a Trans-tibial prosthesis is to substitute a lost part, restore lost functions, comfortable ambulation, minimizing or reducing energy expenditure and maintain the equilibrium of the body during the gait cycle.
Creating a perfect fitting socket as a second skin is made more accessible by using the most accurate 3D scanner measurements and CAD designing. Our experienced CAD specialist creates an individually designed socket system to start manufacturing. The digitally designed file later carved by the robot to build a test socket and then converted to the permanent socket.
Bio-mechanical influence in locomotion with lower limb prosthesis is primarily based on how good his socket is constructed [Primary Interface]. An appropriately designed socket system provides a comfortable interface for the transmission of body weight, Stability during stance phase, allow sufficient control on mobility, protect stump soft tissues and contribute suspension of the prosthesis.
Poor socket fitting not only limits mobility because of excessive shear or compressive forces, excessive torques but also cause friction between the skin and liner.
An appropriate suspension system also a critical aspect of good prosthetic design. A higher insight on suspension systems by the prosthetists ensures amputee’s functional needs are satisfied. The better the human-prosthetic connection, the more comfortable the prosthesis and the more effectively prosthesis can be controlled by the stump.
It is a positioning method used between prosthetic foot relative to a socket. A static alignment method according to individual load line followed right from prosthesis assembly where a dynamic alignment is tested by the repetitive process to optimize amputee gait pattern by gait observation and induction of alignment adjustments when deviations are detected. This will help the prosthetic user to reduce excessive loading on sensitive areas and improve gait stability
It is an excellent system now available in the United Arab Emirates with MOBILIS to correct static alignment of orthotics and prosthetic devices. This positively effects on patient’s posture and mobility. Awkward positions are minimized. Users find it easier to maintain their balance by correcting the alignment.
With the new 3D L.A.S.A.R. Posture, cameras take a live recording of the patient standing on the measuring plate and transmit the image to a tablet PC. The measured forces are represented as lines on the tablet’s display, which are positioned with millimetre accuracy over the patient’s image.
Prosthetic components are designed to meet the needs that fit your lifestyle and activity level. Prosthetist chooses the most appropriate component after considering several factors. Variable options of joints are available from simple mechanical to microprocessor ankle joints according to users’ functional requirements and residual limb condition.
The prosthetic cover is shaped into the form of a natural human leg. Its unique shape and surface of the cover express character and lifestyle. A multitude of patterns, colours and inspiring designs provide individuality and charisma. The cover is 3D printed and attached to the prosthesis.
