Prosthetic sockets cause numerous issues for the wearer including falls, instability, pain, blisters, pistoning, rotation, uneven gait, and uncomfortably high trim lines. Today’s sockets degrade sensory information resulting in poor proprioception and a reduction in walking confidence and speed; all associated with high mental and physical fatigue. A lack of physiological feedback to the brain contributes to phantom limb pain, a major problem for amputees. There is a better way, and it doesn’t involve surgery.
A Higher Standard
Enter the High-Fidelity (HiFi) with patented and patents-pending Osseostabilization™ and Osseosynchronization™ technology. The HiFi delves deeper to capture and control the underlying bone, syncing the interface with skeletal movement. When motion and force are captured closer to the bone, the prosthesis reacts more precisely and the brain reacts more instinctively. HiFi wearers report their prostheses feel more like a part of them, feel connected to them, with many reporting phantom sensations returning to their limbs, allowing them to feel the ground. Many report a reduction in mental fatigue because they forget they are wearing their prosthesis. Band-aids for sockets (liners, vacuum, adjustability, modularity) can’t replace pure and simple INTERFACE BIOMECHANICS. Without a core platform based in science, you will only be able to go so far. Time to get a HiFi.
