Our HiFi Interface and Imager™ system, with patented and patents-pending technology, is the most advanced design available because we focus on body biomechanics, responsiveness, shear forces, pressure, bone positioning and control, tissue management, efficiency of movement, gait symmetry, rotational control, range of motion, proprioception, energy saving, and overall user embodiment, all while ensuring superior comfort. In other words, obtaining a comfortable fit is just the beginning. Functional outcomes are the end game.
In the 21st Century we are sending rockets to Mars but prosthetists are still fitting you in buckets!?!?
Where is the science people?
We know the attachment platform is the core factor in determining success or failure of attached devices and is in direct proportion to wear times, walking speeds, balance confidence, falls, comfort, and overall function. In our opinion there has been an overwhelming misappropriation of research dollars allocated to the components that are being attached to the prosthetic user and little financial consideration to the connection itself. The components today are highly effective and functional, yet they are being attached to inefficient socket platforms. You wouldn’t trust your Ferrari or Lamborghini if it was built on a rickety chassis with faulty suspension and flat tires. No one would. But you are forced to trust a socket that is inherently biomechanically flawed with not only your hard earned dollars, but with your life.
Yearly fall rates are as high as 66%.
Did you know, falling and the fear of falling is prevalent among the amputee population, especially for AK amputees?
