TF-prosthesis, level IMFL-4, proof against environmental influences


The distal part of the trans-femoral amputation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle foot device: foot with highest energy delivery from the fore foot and heel and additional components like axial rotation unit or shock absorbing system
* knee joint: controlled stance phase with a moderate or high level swing phase control for high performance, e.g. polycentric knee or single axis knee with friction lock or single axis with biomechanical lock with small hydraulic or pneumatic swing phase control, or single axis knee with electronic stance phase and swing phase control or hydraulic swing stance control with unicentric knee
Construction components:
* endoskeletal components
* alignment components
* connectors
Finishing components:
* foam cover
* stocking.

The distal part of the trans-femoral prosthesis is connected to a trans-femoral interface following the biomechanical and physiological characteristics of the user.

Prosthesis has to be aligned properly according to the biomechanical principles.

The foot-ankle unit offers a high level on energy return resulting from a small force generated at toe-off.

Controlled stance phase with a moderate or high level swing phase control for high performances.

The materials and construction applied in the prosthesis, allow usage under environmental influences and avoid negative impact of those influence on the functioning of the prosthesis.
The integral prosthesis is custom made.

Contra Indication Text

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 leg for a user who has the ability or potential to use the prosthesis for ambulating that exceeds basic ambulating skills, exhibiting high impact, load, stress, or energy levels. Typical for the prosthetic demands of a child, craftsman, active adult or athlete.
Intended for use under specific environmental conditions.
