Many little things do the perfection. This also applies to prosthesis. If walking really should be fun, it needs more than just a high-quality knee joint. The perfect interaction between an optimally fitting socket, the correct setting of the joint and the ideal statics of a prosthesis make the decisive difference. This goal is our motivation. We manufacture prostheses for a wide variety of requirements, which convince through optimal functionality, optics and state-of-the-art technology. Thus you not only stand with both legs in life, but also can pursue all your interests in sports and leisure time.

Our expertise

M.A.S. socket

We became known in the field of prosthetics with the M.A.S. technology, which Gottinger introduced in 2005 in Germany. Since then, we have further developed this socket system to continuously enhance comfort throughout the day.

The precise Ramus clasping of the M.A.S. socket allows a power-saving, precise guiding of the prosthesis and an improvement of the gait pattern.

The user benefits from more comfort while sitting and significantly greater freedom of movement. With the use of precise measurement methods and optical scan data, we are able to design precisely and create millimeter-accurate models. Changes of the socket can be traced, documented and evaluated. This leads to a constant improvement of the prosthesis.

Socket technology

Without a perfectly fitting socket, running or walking does not bring much joy, even with the best and most modern knee joint. We are certified for the installation of all common knee joints. But only our experience, craftsmanship and sensitivity in modeling and adjusting the socket ensure that our patients receive the best possible result. So the prosthesis should allow all the necessary movements at work, in everyday life and in sports.

Depending on the type of stump and the degree of mobility, we will work with you to select the ideal type of socket and materials to ensure that the prosthesis has a perfect fit.

Thanks to our own CAD department, we are also able to scan well-fitting sockets and create duplicates with millimeter precision.

3D printing technology

With the additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, a new manufacturing method moved into the orthopedic technology. Due to selected materials and manufacturing techniques, the aids receive maximum stability and increase the wearing comfort. In the designing phase, required joints and spring elements are taken into account and are later installed. As patients are involved in the design of the prostheses, the acceptance increases and thus the product is worn more often.

AREAS OF APPLICATION:

Bathing prostheses:

Under the shower or while taking a bath prostheses must give a secure grip and consist of suitable materials. The 3D printing offers ideal conditions. Furthermore it has an attractive, modern look through individual design and coloring.

Prosthetic cover:

While classic prosthetic covers try to attract as little attention as possible and look as natural as possible, 3D printed covers are a real eye-catcher. The choice of colors and patterns make the prosthesis an expression of personality and a real accessory.

Latest knee joints of all common manufacturers

The range of high-quality prosthesis parts is huge. Which one is optimal for you depends on your degree of mobility. With the prosthetic feet, the range extends from the simple SACH foot for stability and soft movements, to the high-end carbon spring, which makes running particularly effortless. The knee joints also have a variety of options available.

From a simple lockable knee joint up to the microprocessor-controlled version. We prefer lightweight knee joints with a mechanical brake or computer-controlled high-tech joints, such as the ‘Genium’ knee joint or the 'Rheo Knee'.

Phases of a rehabilitation

Phase I: wound healing

Wounds have to close, pain subsides and the swelling goes back. This is supported by a compression therapy. We come to you into the hospital and supply you with compression stockings and silicone liners. This is the first time you get to know our orthotist.

Phase II: interim prosthesis

As soon as the stump is loadable, we start building the interim prosthesis. Thisonly takes a few days. As you make the first experience of your prosthesis, your leg or arm gets used to the strain and the swelling goes back.
The prosthesis is designed to be relatively easily adapted to the changing volume. Also, individual parts such as socket, joints and foot or hand can be easily replaced. This way you can find out what feels best for you.

 

Phase III: final prosthesis

After about six months, we produce your final prosthesis. We then focus on low weight, functionality and cosmetics. The carbon fiber socket is very filigree and light, but four times stronger than steel. Parts are individually tailored to your needs and wishes. Using digital images and a form detection of your other leg or arm, we make a cosmetic cladding of the prosthesis, to ensure the most natural appearance possible.
