Below Knee Prostheses
Below knee prostheses are customer fabricated for each patient. Any kind of residual limb can be accomodated and connected with a socket and manufactured feet and ankle joints to provide the amputee with maximum benefit in the rehabilitation process.
- Partial Food Molded Socket
This custom molded prosthesis is used for amputations of the foot where stability of the ankle is required.
- Below Knee Endoskeletal System
This custom fabricated prosthesis features a tube that connects the socket to the foot. A foam material is used to fill the space and provide a natural appearance and feel.
- Below Knee Preparatory Prosthesis
This prosthesis is applied in the hospital to provide some lower limb function soon after the amputation. It is only meant for use until a more suitable prosthesis can be fabricated to better meet the patient's needs.
- Initial PTB Type B/K Prosthesis
This prosthesis is used for patients whose residual limb wound has healed but not reached its final shape.
- Addition to Lower Extremeity, Symes Type
This prosthesis is for amputation through the ankle to assist in the donning and doffing of the prosthesis.

Below Knee Sockets
The socket is the connection point between the residual limb and the prosthesis. Selection of the socket is very important, as each condition requires specific needs. Some of the residual limbs are more sensitive to certain materials or prone to shrinkage or anatomical change. Most sockets can be adjusted to accomodate these changes.

Above Knee Sockets
Above knee sockets are larger and must accomodate mounting to the knee joint. Again, selection of the socket is very important as each condition requires specific needs. Some residual limbs are more sensitive to certain materials and prone to shrinkage or anatomical change. Most sockets can be adjusted to accomodate these changes.
Hands and Arms
Upper extremity prostheses are custom molded and fabricated for each patient. As with lower extremity prostheses, there are a wide variety of joints and suspension systems that are available to give the amputee maximum benefit during the rehab process.
