FES for Foot Drop
Regain your freedom after a stroke, brain injury or if you are living with cerebral palsy, MS or nerve damage with a Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) device. These devices stimulate the Peroneal nerve to cause the affected foot to raise and create a more natural walking pattern. This helps the user enjoy a more natural walking gait by delivering programmed, low-level electrical stimulation. An FES device can be used in place of a traditional AFO. The Ness L300 and The Walk Aide are two of the most common FES devices on the market today.
Carbon Fiber in Braces
The traditional plastic Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is used to treat physical problems with the patient's legs due to stroke, cerebral palsy, MS, nerve damage or brain injury. New technology has delivered Carbon Fiber as an extremely light weight, more comfortable and stronger replacement of the traditional plastic previously used for the AFO.
Stance Control Orthoses (SCO)
Stance Control Orthoses (SCO) The Stance Control (SCO) from Otto Bock gives the users greater knee flexion while walking and greater mobility. This device allows the knee to bend during the swing phase of walking and provides for greater knee stability. The knee bending with the SCO allows a more normal gait, and reduces the likelihood of damaging gate compensation.
The BiOM Foot by iWalk allows users to walk further and walk longer with becoming exhausted. This foot helps to maintain a more stable, comfortable gait. It is the only prosthetic that mimics the functions of calf muscles and Achilles tendon.
The Genium Knee provides more stability, is water resistant and more compact than the knee joints that came before it. This state-of-the-art microprocessor-controlled knee joint utilizes a complex sensory system that more closely mimics the userâ€™s natural gait than any other prosthetic knee. The Genium Knee from Otto Bock has a gyroscope sensor and 5-day battery life.
Negative Vacuum Suspension Socket
The negative vacuum suspension socket offers significant benefits to lower limb amputees. This new type of elevated vacuum suspension maintains residual limb volume throughout the day keeping the fit better and more constant throughout the day and lessens skin irritation and damage.
Above knee amputees can have greater comfort and more natural function with The Ossur Symbionic Leg. This completely bionic leg combines a microprocessor knee and foot for more control that allows the wearer to explore all terrains safely.
Creating better fitting, more comfortable prosthetic limbs has never been more precise. The technology of the Computer Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) system creates prosthetic limbs with more accuracy and efficiency than ever before. The CAD scans the residual limb with extreme accuracy and then sends that information to the (CAM) system to create the prosthetic device using an electronic carver. The result is a better and more comfortable fit for the user and less revisions for the practitioner.
Speed and adaptability to changing walking styles and terrains are the hallmarks of the Ossur RHEO KNEE. This amazing device actually learns and improves its reaction time as the user wears it. This sleek knee will make each step safer, easier and more comfortable or the user.
The first and only active prosthesis for above-knee amputees, this motor-powered prosthetic knee, acts like an extension of the user. This intelligent Power Knee from Ossur replaces true muscle activity to bend and straighten the knee as required making walking in uneven terrain and going up stairs and inclines easier and safer while still offering a more natural gait.
BiOM Ankle System
The BiOM Ankle System is a highly advanced new prosthesis that increases functionality, allowing clients to walk at a natural speed and gives a greater sense of stability across a range of surfaces and terrains. This state-of-the-art ankle system from iWalk improves function while using less energy requirements, decreasing joint degeneration and pain.
Cosmetic Covers and Restorations
While some people wear their upper and lower limb prosthetics openly, many people choose to cover theirs and present a less notable limb or appendage that more closely matches their remaining limb or body part. For those people, cosmetic covers and restorations provides great discretion without compromising the effectiveness of the prosthetic. These custom-molded silicone prosthesis can be designed to match your skin tone and include hair, veins, tattoos and freckles and nails.
The C-Leg will change the way a lower limb amputee walks. Since its debut in the late 1990s, the Otto Bock C-Leg has continually been proven to be one of the popular microprocessor prosthetic legs in history, with over 40,000 people plus users to date. The innovator and trailblazer in microprocessor-controlled hydraulics, and permanent stance phase control, the C-legs stability and flexibility make it a standout with users and practitioners.
