Lower limb prosthetics
Mobility means quality of life. This applies to every age and especially to those who had a lower limb amputated. The demands on a prosthesis are as different as our lives are varied. Ottobock provides the solution for the fitting that is perfectly adapted to your requirements. Our prostheses allow you to participate in many day-to-day and leisure activities without major limitations. The prerequisite, naturally, is a fitting that meets your individual needs. The best possible kind of fitting is determined in conversation with your doctor, orthopaedic technician and the rehabilitation team.
When having an amputation in the foot region you can be fitted with a high-quality silicone prosthesis. The advantage of a custom silicone prosthesis is its high wearing comfort through its accurate adaption to your foot shape. Furthermore, a partial foot prosthesis has a highly natural appearance because its colour and shape can be individually adapted to you.
Individual fitting solutions for amputations below the knee, above the knee and in the area of the hip
If you need a prosthetic fitting for these kinds of amputation levels your prosthesis will consist of various modular components, such as a prosthetic foot, knee and hip joint where applicable and connecting elements. That means each component can be chosen and adapted according to your very personal needs and lifestyle.
