TT-prosthesis, level IMFL-3, functional finish

Description

The distal part of the trans-tibia amputation prosthesis is composed by:
Functional components:
* ankle-foot device: energy delivery from the fore foot and the heel part and additional components, like axial rotation unit and shock absorbing system
Structural components:
* exoskeletal or endoskeletal structural components
* alignment components
* connectors.
Finishing components:
* cosmetic foam
* stocking.

The distal part of the trans-tibia prostheses is connected to a trans-tibia interface following the biomechanical and physiological characteristics of the user.

Prosthesis has to be aligned properly according to biomechanical principles.

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

Contra Indication Text

High load on outer parts of the prosthesis, e.g. during 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

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
