KD-prosthesis, level IMFL-3, functional finish

Description

The distal part of the knee disarticulation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle foot device: foot with high energy delivery from the fore foot and heel and additional components like axial rotation unit or shock absorbing system
* knee joint: controlled stance phase with a moderate or high level swing phase control, e.g. polycentric knee with hydraulic or pneumatic swing phase control, or swing phase control with bouncy
Construction components:
* endoskeletal components
* alignment components
* connectors
Finishing components:
* foam cover
* stocking.

The distal part of the knee disarticulation prosthesis is connected to a trans-femoral interface following the biomechanical and physiological characteristics of the user.

Prosthesis has to be aligned properly according to the biomechanical principles.

The foot-ankle unit offers a high level on energy return resulting from a small force generated at toe-off.

Controlled stance phase with a moderate or high level swing phase control.
The integral prosthesis is custom made.

User Characteristics ICF Code

1b1801 - Impairment in experience of self
2d410 - Limitation in changing basic body position
2d415 - Limitation in maintaining a body position
2d420 - Limitation in transferring oneself
2d4501 - Limitation in walking long distances
2d460 - Limitation in moving around in different locations

Contra Indication Text

High load on outer parts of the prosthesis, e.g. kneeling with support on knee.
Contact with water.

Intended Use Text

Supposed to be used as functional (to sit, to stand and to walk) and cosmetic replacement of the amputated part of the leg for a user who has the ability or potential to use the prosthesis for ambulating traversing most environmental barriers. Typical used for community walking and vocational or other activity that demands prosthetic utilisation beyond simple locomotion

Intended Use ICF Code

1b1801 - To support or train experience of self
2d410 - To support or train changing basic body position
2d415 - To support or train maintaining a body position
2d420 - To support or train transferring oneself
2d4501 - To support or train walking long distances
