Prosthetics

Our practice provides customized solutions in prosthetics that employ the very latest techniques and technologies to bring freedom and mobility to our patients.

Rheo Knee

The Rheo Knee by Ossur is a microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee with bionic technology that reads the position of the knee approximately 250 times per second and then calibrates how much and how fast the knee should bend given the patient’s specific activity and gait pattern. This allows the patient to walk fast, slow and/or run knowing that the prosthesis will adjust almost instantaneously to their needs.

Security • Adaptability • Freedom

This is a knee so smart, it adapts automatically to individual walking styles and different environments, continuously learning and improving its response over time.

C – Leg

The C-leg by Otto Bock, is a programmable microprocessor prosthetic knee that reads the position of the foot and prosthetic socket approximately 250 times per second and calibrates this information to adjust and improve the patient’s gait pattern and decrease their falls. The knee can be programmed for specific activities.

Confidence and safety are two  important features you need in a leg and foot prosthesis. The C-Leg offers both of these and more. This product started a revolution for above the knee amputees. The C-Leg is actually computer –controlled and programmable to your gait. With the C-Leg you can walk down stairs or even a ramp and feel completely at ease with confidence knowing its proven reliability against falls and stumbling.

The C-Leg microprocessor-controlled knee is one step ahead of the curve.

The newest innovations of the C Leg provide even greater stability with easier and smoother knee movement. The most recent version even has increased weight limit. It also boasts a Third Mode that provides even more options for your individualized movements, selected and programmed by you. So, you, once again, can be in control.

The C-Leg is the Standard of Care.

I–Limb Hand

The I-Limb, by Touch Bionics, is a myoelectric multi digit proportionally- controlled prosthetic hand. It is the first prosthetic hand that allows the amputee to use all fingers and each individual digit to grasp an item with irregular contours. For further information regarding the I-Limb, (click here.) (Photos)

The I-Limb Ultra Prosthetic Hand is designed for those who want more from their prosthesis.

With the I-Limb Ultra, your prosthesis looks and moves more like a natural hand than any other powered prosthetic hand. Each finger moves independently and bends at the natural joints so that it can accurately adapt to fit around the shape of the object you want to grasp.

It’s the only prosthetic hand with the ability to gradually increase the strength of its grip on an object. This can be very useful in situations where a firmer grasp is required, such as tying shoelaces tightly or holding a heavy bag more securely.

Vacuum Suspension Systems – Symmetry

The Symmetry liner and elevated vacuum suspension system from Otto Bock has revolutionized the way prostheses are applied and suspended. The Symmetry system incorporates a soft stretchable roll on silicone liner, and a small programmable vacuum pump called the Impulse. The Impulse pump is mounted onto the prostheses, and draws the patient and liner into the socket and holds it there under vacuum. For trans-femoral amputee patients, this means not having to extend the socket high up in the groin area which can cause considerable irritation. The low sub-ischial socket design also gives the patient greater range of motion and freedom.

Utah Artificial Arm

The Utah Arm, by Motion Control, is a myoelectrically controlled prosthetic elbow for above elbow or shoulder disarticulation patients (amputees). It flexes, extends and rotates the forearm in supination and pronation direction via motors. The motors are activated through myoelectric sensors mounted in the skin. These sensors detect the intensity of nerve impulses and turn the motors on and off. This eliminates the use of cables or body power. This arm has the widest range of input sensors. The prosthetist or the patient can actually adjust the device for maximum performances, providing a natural movement.

Revolimb® Adjustable Prosthetic Socket

Revolimb® , Boa® Closure systems

As your body changes, so do your needs. Why not wear a prosthesis that can change with you?

The Revolimb®  is a revolutionary new socket that allows you to change the socket shape according to your needs. It is adjustable, you simply turn the dial a couple of clicks when you want your socket to fit tighter for better control, release the dial when you want to decrease your socket pressure while sitting or driving.  It is just that simple.

The Revolimb®  uses a discreet micro-adjustable Boa® closure and cable to control the pressure within your socket. As the dial tightens the cable closes the socket around you. It works under your cloths, does not require removal of your prosthesis and offers on the spot adjustment.

It only makes sense, like a shoe with laces, you open it up, slide inside and then tighten it around your residual limb. Can you imagine if the only way you could tighten your shoes was to put more socks? Unlike a static socket with socks, the Revolimb is easy to apply and adjust throughout the day. Sometimes it is the simple things in life that  make all the difference.
