TF-prosthesis, level IMFL-2, functional finish


The distal part of the trans-femoral amputation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle foot device: foot with moderate energy delivery from the fore foot or multi axial ankle/foot and additional components like axial rotation unit or shock absorbing system
* knee joint: locked at stance phase with some level of swing phase control, 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
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.

High stability during stance phase. Some swing phase control.

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.

* moderate decreased performance capacities

User Characteristics ICF Code

1b1801 - Impairment in experience of self
2d410 - Limitation in changing basic body position
2d4154 - Limitation in maintaining a standing position

Contra Indication Text

High load on outer parts of the prosthesis, e.g. during kneeling with support on knee.
Contact with water.

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 traversing low level environmental barriers such as curbs, stairs or uneven surfaces. Typical used for limited community walking
