AD-prosthesis, IMFL-2, prosthesis for ankle disarticulation, including soft inner socket and foot with elastic heel part, exoskeletal


The prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle/foot device: Sach foot with elastic heel part or multi axial ankle/foot
Structural components:
* exoskeletal.
Interface components:
* soft inner socket.
Essential fitting through full contact and closed socket form at the tibia area. Reinforced dorsal and plantar motion at the upper ankle joint. Pro- and supination control at the lower ankle joint through lateral control. Full contact between socket and stump.
Inner shaft with distal opening, made from elastic or foam material (e.g. PE, EVA, leather-gummy). Outside shaft rigid construction and circularly closed, made from fibre material. Includes industrial ankle/foot for level IMFL2. Connection between inner and outer shank through closed form and friction.
Included are 2 test sockets and casting and cast preparation.

The prosthesis should be extra light because of the intensive use of it in combination with the physical conditions of the user.
The integral prosthesis is custom made.
