KD-prosthesis, level IMFL-1, functional 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, 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:
* 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 walking.

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

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
