Lower Limbs


The kneepads (suspension sheaths)

There are many kinds of knee pads, they are generally made of silicone and are rolled onto the upper part of the socket and the thigh.

They can achieve better cohesion between the prosthesis and the amputated limb and are thus able to replace the condylar attachment or the distal attachment of the prosthetic.

For the swimming prosthetic they guarantee sealing inside the prosthesis.

The different types of knee pads are fragile and deteriorate relatively quickly.

Shock absorbers

This part is placed between the socket and foot.

As its name suggests, it cushions the shock when walking, thereby reducing the vertical stress applied to the stump and onto the spine.

Popular for walking on uneven terrain.

Nevertheless, this part adds a little weight to the prosthesis.

Torsion Absorbers

Like the shock absorber, this part is placed between the socket and foot.

It also reduces the stresses applied to the stump during walking but beacuse of twisting movements.

It is particularly appreciated when the person shuffles a lot as for example when doing a job in an office or  walking in a confined space.

However, it adds a little to the weight of the prosthesis.

Now there is a part that combines the two shock and torsion absorbers.

Adjustable ankle BRIO 30

This ankle joint allows easy adjustment from 0 to 30 mm heel.

It is simple to use and can be placed on a tibial or femoral prosthetic above any type of foot.
Its main drawback is its weight: 390 gr.
