With our HiFi Interface, we have documented the benefits of OI – increased prosthetic use/longer wear times, increased stability, increased walking speeds, increased comfort, increased range of motion, and a feeling of being connected to your prosthesis, without the risk of any surgery. The greatest benefits occur when you combine skeletal stabilization with soft tissue fascial tension and better engage the full suite of mechanoreceptors, like we do with the HiFi Interface.
While we are not opposed to OI, we ask that you consider the HiFi first. We understand and appreciate your disappointment with bucket sockets and sockets claiming to solve all your issues. We’re disappointed with them too. But with the HiFi, no surgery is required, no recovery period, no open wounds, no ongoing infections, no medications, no fear of bone fractures, no fear of activities, and no fear of water. So what are you waiting for?
To the medical community, we support the idea of a connenction. In fact, we consider our HiFi Interface System more in line with OI than Standard of Care Sockets as we focus on achieving bone control. And we know OI shows much promise, but we challenge those surgeons performing OI on amputees with otherwise healthy limbs capable of using a removable interface to make your patients aware of the HiFi Interface System as a possible alternative, or better yet, prerequisite, to surgery.
