Prosthesis for partial foot amputation that is custom fabricated from a model of the patient. It keeps the ankle joint free, has a rigid sole and a toe filler. The essential fitting of the prosthesis takes place through a circular strap and support at the supra-calcanus area.
Full contact between stump and prosthesis inner socket. Inner socket made from elastic (foam material e.g. PE, EVA, leather gummy, cork, soft cast). Outside socket from elastic or foam material (e.g. PE, EVA, Cork, Felt). Eventual industrial produced components for additional functions like for reinforcement of plantar flexion (e.g. from fibre or textile based).
This procedure includes a maximum of 2 test sockets as well as casting and cast preparation.
