Lower Limb Prosthesis

Prosthetic Services

Prosthetic Services

We are among the leading prosthetic manufacturers and offer full prosthetic care for amputees. This may include pre-amputation counseling and evaluation, as well as immediate post-surgical prosthetic fittings (IPOP). We provide on site evaluation, design and fit patients of all shapes, sizes and ages for their artificial leg below knee requirements. We do provide a wide variety of amputation levels for both below as well as above knee. In both these fittings, Human Technology is among the leading companies where artificial leg above knee fitment is provided to the utmost satisfaction of the patient. We manage the entire spectrum of patients care, thereby maximizing their prosthetic experience. We work closely with the patient’s physicians, therapists, insurance company, case manager, psychologist and social worker to ensure an optimal outcome.

We also provide care in skilled nursing, acute rehab facilities, hospitals, and if necessary, patient’s home.

At Human Technology we believe in quality and timely delivery of device. We have partnered with some of the newest and most technologically advanced facilities and leading prosthetic manufacturers in US and abroad to bring the state-of-the-art quality and faster services. And to be able to provide patients with an array of solutions to ensure the most comfortable fit and function available so each can move freely and Live Active.

Lower & Upper Extremity Prosthetics

Lower Extremity Prosthetics

Lower extremity prosthetics describes artificially replaced limbs located at the hip level or lower. The two main subcategories of lower extremity prosthetic devices are 1.trans-tibial (any amputation transecting the tibia bone or a congenital anomaly resulting in a tibial deficiency) and 2.trans-femoral (any amputation transecting the femur bone or a congenital anomaly resulting in a femural deficiency). In the prosthetic industry a trans-tibial prosthetic leg is often referred to as a “BK” or below the knee prosthesis while the trans-femoral prosthetic leg is often referred to as an “AK” or above the knee prosthesis.

 

Other, less prevalent lower extremity cases include the following

  • Hip disarticulations – This usually refers to when an amputee or congenitally challenged patient has either an amputation or anomaly at or in close proximity to the hip joint.
  • Knee disarticulations – This usually refers to an amputation through the knee disarticulating the femur from the tibia.
  • Symes – This is an ankle disarticulation while preserving the heel pad.
Transtibial Prosthesis
A transtibial prosthesis is an artificial limbs that replaces a leg missing below the knee and commonly called prosthetic leg below the knee . Transtibial amputees are usually able to regain normal movement more readily than someone with a transfemoral amputation, due in large part to retaining the knee, which allows for easier movement. In the prosthetic industry a trans-tibial prosthetic leg is often referred to as a “BK” or below the knee prosthesis.
Transfemoral Prosthesis
A transfemoral prosthesis is an artificial limbs that replaces a leg missing above the knee. Transfemoral amputees can have a very difficult time regaining normal movement. In general, a transfemoral amputee must use approximately 80% more energy to walk than a person with two whole legs.[20] This is due to the complexities in movement associated with the knee. In newer and more improved designs, after employing hydraulics, carbon fibre, mechanical linkages, motors, computer microprocessors, and innovative combinations of these technologies to give more control to the user. In the prosthetic industry a trans-femoral best prosthetic leg is often referred to as an “AK” or above the knee prosthesis.
