Lengthening Prosthesis, Articulated
When the length difference between the lower extremities is significant (less than 15 cm from the knee of the other side) it is possible to use modular knee joints. The socket is made from prepreg -carbon fibre or laminated glass- or carbon fibre. It is possible to lighten the load of the limb by a support on the tuber ischi -area. The model of the knee joint, the foot components and the construction of the socket are always chosen and/or manufactured individually for each patient. Measurements are taken with a negative cast.
