KD-prosthesis, level IMFL-4, cosmetic 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 or hydraulic swing stance control with unicentric knee
Construction components:
* external shell configuration or endoskeletal components.

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 external layout and finishing of the prosthesis looks like the original leg, which contributes to the functional cosmetics of the prosthesis as replacement of the amputated leg.
The integral prosthesis is custom made.

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 that exceeds basic ambulating skills, exhibiting high impact, load, stress, or energy levels. Typical for the prosthetic demands of a child, craftsman, active adult or athlete.
Prosthesis looks very much like the amputated part of the body, which contributes to social participation.
