TT-I, interface, liner for pressure distribution, custom made

Description

Prosthetic interface/Liner as an interface material which introduces optimal pressure distribution, e.g. silicon, polyurethane. The suspension of the prosthesis may vary and depends on the former socket: supra condilar suspension, pressure differences and friction suspension.
The liner is custom made for a full contact socket.
Outer socket from thermoplastic or acrylic with sleeve and valve for demounting.
Can be combined with endo- and exoskeletal prostheses.

User Characteristics ICF Code

Contra Indication Text

Activities which require an intensive fitting
Intellectual impairments
Impairments in reaching and gripping due to spine or upper extremities.

Intended Use Text
