Endolite Introduces Breathable Liner Technology for Drier Skin and Socket Security

Endolite

The Silcare Breathe Silicone Liner features laser drilled perforations to allow moisture to escape, resulting in drier skin and a healthier environment for the residual limb.

Managing moisture in this way helps to reduce the damaging effects of friction and improve comfort and control.

  • Stretch Zones – seamless technology provides bi-directional stretch to improve comfort and contouring and reduce shear force on the knee as it flexes.
  • Laser Perforations – Optimally sized pores, distributed uniformly along the length and distal end of the liner permit the escape of air and moisture.
  • Tendresse Finish – A lower coefficient of friction that standard silicone reduces shear stress on the skin.

Go Sleeveless with the Unity® Sleeveless Vacuum System by Össur®

Unity Sleeveless Vacuum System

Elevated vacuum systems typically require a sleeve to maintain vacuum. The problem is, sleeves are bulky. They bunch behind the knee, restricting range-of-motion. They can also puncture, leading to a loss of vacuum.

Building on established Seal-In® technology, the Unity Sleeveless Vacuum System by Össur is the first elevated vacuum solutionto generate 15-22 inHg of vacuum without a sleeve.

Unity Sleeveless Vacuum is compatible with a variety of Flex-Foot® feet, including low activity, low profile and microprocessor solutions.

New Suspension Option for Transfemoral Amputees

New Suspension Option for Transfemoral Amputees

The WillowWood One System, launched in April 2015, now provides transfemoral amputees a choice in suspension methods without sacrificing reliability and security. The WillowWood One System may now be used as a suction socket.

Initially released for use only with elevated vacuum, WillowWood has been clinically testing the system with suction suspension for the past 10 months. The suction suspension version of the system is ideal for amputees who prefer less technical or complex options in their prostheses.

The WillowWood One System includes several components, such as a fabricless Alpha SmartTemp® Liner, a gel sock, a seal, and a removable brim, that work together to deliver reliable and secure suspension.

Certification is required to purchase and fit the WillowWood One System.

For product and certification course information, contact WillowWood at 800.848.4930 or visit willowwoodco.com.


Rebound® PCL –A Proven Dynamic Loading Knee Brace, by Össur®

Rebound PCL

Our expertise in Injury Solutions has driven us to develop indication-specific solutions designed to optimize healing while maintaining function and mobility.

The Rebound PCL brace is designed to apply a physiologically correct, dynamic force optimum for rehabilitation of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) ruptures, whether during functional (non-surgical) treatment or post-surgical reconstruction. The dynamic load of the Rebound PCL on the tibia is generated by applying an anterior directed dynamic force on the calf area, and opposing counter forces on the anterior aspect of the leg.

Visit www.ossur.com/PCL1 to learn more.


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.
