      A book that describes the method step-by-step is Manual of Above-Knee Wood Socket Prosthetics by Miles Anderson, John Bray, and Charles Hennesey. It has gone out of print, but you may still be able to find it. WillowWood strongly recommends applying Loc-Tite Removable Threadlocker (or equivalent) to the pin threads prior to installing the pin. Failure to ensure that the locking pin is secure in the Locking Liner could result in the pin coming out of the liner, resulting in .

    Since your prosthetic device presses against your skin, it is important to clean it on a daily basis. You can wash the socks and liners with your laundry, but the prosthetic structure requires a manual wipe-down. You can gently clean the prosthetic socket by using a . Selection and Application of Knee Mechanisms of the staff of the Prosthetic and Sensory Aids Service, to whom this Program Guide is dedicated. This Program Guide presents specific guidelines for the prescription of knee mechanisms for above-knee amputees .

    The prosthetic knee is aligned posterior to a line extending from the trochanter to the ankle assisting in maintaining knee extension. A manual lock is a pin that limits knee flexion and is released by an unlocking lever (for individuals that require a constantly locked knee -- .

The use of video recording and slow motion analysis of the patient walking with the prosthesis (Fig. 18) has been a great help to both the patient and the prosthetist doing the alignment. Flexible prosthetic socket for above knee amputees. Our flexible prosthetic socket design for above knee prosthetic legs results from our long experience with the “MAS” socket shape.

However, the MAS socket is relatively narrow in order to prevent bottoming of the ischial bone and thus an unnatural pelvis. Orthotics and Prosthetics is is­ sued in March, June, Sep­ tember and December. Sub­ scription price, payable in ad­ vance, is $ a year in the U.S.

The Journal. The type of knee used on an above knee prosthesis depends on the patient’s activity level, the patient’s weight, the patient’s strength and ability to control the knee, residual limb length, funding, and patient preference.

Friction is used in the knees in order to control the knee. The Importance of Prosthetic Socket Design By MCOP Team Febru prosthetic socket, amputee skin care, prosthetic issues. To ensure optimal comfort and safety, there is nothing more important than prosthetic socket design, whether it’s for your arms or hands, your knees (above or below), or any other part of your MCOP, we start by asking the right.

During the s and s, the most common type of socket for the above-knee amputee in the United States was an ischial containment socket (ischial tuberosity within the walls of the socket) called a "plug fit" or "anatomical" socket.

The suspension method used for these prostheses was suspenders, pelvic belt and band, or air chamber suction. Above Knee Adjustable Sockets. The socket is the most critical component of your prosthesis. It distributes weight evenly across the entire surface of the residual limb, eliminating pressure points.

Flexible, lightweight materials enable the socket to bend and expand along with the patient’s residual limb. Here are examples of adjustable sockets. C-Leg® is the microprocessor prosthetic leg for above-knee amputees who want the established industry standard trusted by tens of thousands and confirmed by dozens of clinical studies.

Your conversations and goal setting with your prosthetist will drive the decision about which system will best support your activities. A typical prosthetic socket for an above the knee amputee consists of four different compartments: A socket, which is the part that comes in direct contact with the amputee’s residual limb.

It is considered the most important piece of a prosthesis because an amputee will not use their whole artificial limb if the socket does not feel comfortable. Above knee amputee demonstrating prosthetic leg socket fit for short residual limb. Also see for tips for above knee amputees.

The most advanced prosthetic sockets, knees, and feet fit by leading above knee prosthetic experts. It may seem obvious, but the simplest prosthetic solutions are often the best. Our experience in above knee socket technology has proven this over and over. Prostheses concerning above knee prosthetics consist of a custom-made socket combined with a supportive frame, knee unit, pylon, and foot.

Sometimes a suspension sleeve or harness may also be necessary. The Prosthetic Knee System Of all prosthetic components that are concerned with an above knee prosthetic, the knee system is arguably the most complex.The transfemoral socket is the interface between the patient’s residual limb and the remaining prosthesis.

Whether the patient uses a technologically advanced knee mechanism and foot or a single axis, constant friction knee and solid ankle cushioned heel, no other prosthetic component is as crucial in assuring a comfortable and well-functioning prosthesis as the by:   The Genium microprocessor controlled hydraulic knee system is highly advanced and resistant to exposure to water.

The knee gives a bilateral above knee amputee incredible stability while walking.
