Above Knee Prosthetics
Above Knee Prosthetics Solutions
There are several types of above-knee prosthetics, each serving a specific function to support individuals in different ways. Liners and Cast/Scans are crucial components used to create custom-fitted sockets, providing comfort and stability while minimizing friction and pressure on the residual limb. Diagnostic Sockets allow for adjustments and modifications before the final socket is fabricated, ensuring an optimal fit and function. The Laminated or Final socket is the end product of the casting process, manufactured to precisely fit the amputee's residual limb, providing the necessary support and comfort for daily activities. Prosthetic knees, on the other hand, are specialized components that mimic the natural knee joint, offering stability, control, and adaptability to different terrains and activities, enabling users to walk, run, and navigate various environments with ease. These diverse components collectively contribute to the comprehensive functionality and usability of above-knee prosthetics, enhancing the overall quality of life for amputees.
