TF-prosthesis, level IMFL-1, proof against environmental influences


The distal part of the trans-femoral amputation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle foot device: foot with restricted motion and no physical joint, single axis foot, or multi axial ankle/foot, foot with very restricted energy delivery from the fore foot
* knee joint: locked at stance phase, e.g. polycentric knee, single axis knee with manual lock, knee with single axis friction lock
Construction components:
* external shell configuration or endoskeletal components.

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.

High stability during standing and walking.

The total prosthesis is preferably light considering the multiple impairments and sensitivity to the weight of the user.

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 transfers, standing and very restricted ambulating on level surfaces at fixed cadence. Typical used for limited and unlimited household functioning.
Intended for use under specific environmental conditions.
