KD-prosthesis, level IMFL-0, cosmetic finish


The distal part of the knee disarticulation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle-foot device: foot with restricted motion and no physical joint
* knee joint: single axis with manual lock, locked at stance phase without functional swing phase
Construction components:
* endoskeletal components, lightweight
* alignment components: connectors, lightweight
Finishing components:
* foam cover
* stocking.

The distal part of the knee disarticulation 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 transfer.

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