ALPS New Guardian Suction Liner

ALPS New Guardian Suction Liner

The Guardian suction liner from ALPS features raised GripGel bands that grip the socket wall to form a secure interface between the socket and the liner to prevent slippage or premature release. These low modulus GripGel bands stretch against the socket wall, while the inner wall conforms easily to the residual limb, to ensure there is NO RESTRICTION of blood flow or stiffening to inhibit donning. No seams and a single piece construction improve durability.

Available in both transfemoral and transtibial models, the Guardian suction liner can be fully inverted for ease of donning. To accommodate for volume fluctuations please use the ALPS Skin Reliever (ENCP) for continued use of same socket.

RHEO KNEE® 3 by Össur®. A perfect balance of stability and dynamics.

Rheo Knee

Featuring a new gyroscope and kinematic sensor, RHEO KNEE 3 offers increased (and smoother) resistance across a wider range of stance flexion. This improved support from heel strike to toe off helps increase the confidence of all users whether walking on varied terrain, ramps and stairs, or merely standing. However, it is especially reassuring to low K3 users.

At the same time, we didn’t sacrifice the dynamics that RHEO KNEE is known for and that high K3 users expect. In fact, we improved them! With a more powerful actuator and a faster, more consistent swing extension, RHEO KNEE 3 makes it even easier for high active users to walk their way.

Key Features:

  • NEW! Actuator and kinematic sensor enhance stance stability and dynamics.
  • NEW! Redesigned extension assist for faster and more natural swing extension.
  • NEW! 300lb weight limit and up to 3 days of battery life.
  • “Zero Lag” actuator provides an instant response.
  • Effortless swing intiation enables a smoother gait.

Contact your Össur rep or call (800) 233-6263 today to get certified or demo RHEO KNEE 3.

Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

This unique AFO has been designed for Chopart amputees that wish to remain active. Often a traditional full length AFO for this patient will be stiff - feeling unnatural. Using a hinged ankle and flexible foot plate with a segmented dynamic filler allows flexion before providing a ‘stop’ that protects the residuum and prevents shoe vamp collapse. The PTB design and the anterior shell re-distribute ground reaction forces up the lower extremity.
