TT-prosthesis, level IMFL-1, functional finish


The distal part of the trans-tibia amputation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle-foot device: foot with very restricted motion and no physical joint or single axis foot or multi-axial foot with very restricted energy delivery from the forefoot
Structural components:
* endoskeletal components, lightweight
* alignment components
* connectors, lightweight
Finishing components:
* foam cover
* stocking.

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

Prosthesis has to be aligned properly according to biomechanical principles.

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

Prosthesis with extra low energy consumption as a consequence of the light weight.
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 with 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
