FpP-prosthesis, prosthesis for amputation in foot central area. socket and toe filler, free ankle joint, silicon or comparable material


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 friction of the socket to the stump.
Full contact between stump and prosthesis inner socket. Inner and outside socket made from silicon or comparable material (e.g. cork, soft cast).
Eventually industrial produced components are added for additional functions like for reinforcement of plantar flexion (e.g. fibre, or calcanus fixation from fibre or textile).
This procedure includes a functional test socket as well as casting and cast preparation.
The integral prosthesis is custom made.

User Characteristics

Indications are for example:
* amputation of the central part of the foot, more specific:
* long metatarsal stump (Sharp amputation)
* short metatarsal stump (Sharp-Jäger amputation)
* tarsal amputation
* long tarsal amputation (Lisfranc amputation)
* short tarsal amputation (Bona-Jäger amputation
* amputation at the heel part of the foot
* long heel stump (Chopart amputation).

Ankle joint is fully operational.

User Characteristics ICF Code

Contra Indication Text

* in case of Chopart amputation: Not optimal anatomic-functional conditions of the heel part of the foot
* not optimal functioning of the ankle joint
* a standing high load on the forefoot
* sweating
* sensitivity for silico.

Intended Use Text

Supposed to be used as functional (to sit, to stand and to walk) and cosmetic replacement of the amputated part of the foot in order to fit a normal shoe and enabling walking, standing and sitting.
Protect the stump against trauma.
Protect against pressure scores and scrate.
High cosmetic requirements.
