The foot and ankle prosthetic technology provided to Ability’s patients simulates innate ankle motion, while also reflecting a natural cosmetic appearance.
Due to advancements made in recent years, there are a number of socket technology designs available. Each is customized with the primary goal of helping patients establish maximum movement and comfort.
These advanced prosthetic knee devices use internal computers that allow patients to walk efficiently and maintain balance, while also creating a natural gait pattern.
Well-fitting above-the-knee sockets improve the control of the rest of the prosthetic leg and improve comfort. These devices are also easily adjustable.
Technologically advanced with internal cables that make for a sleek cosmetic appearance, myoelectric devices allow patients to complete day-to-day activities seamlessly.
Passive functional devices are lightweight prostheses that provide body symmetry and allow patients to carry out more technical tasks, like writing or typing.
Body-powered prosthetic devices use a patient’s body movements to trigger motion. The simple design includes a shoulder harness and cables.
These devices range from silicone fingers to fully functional fingers that flex and extend naturally. These technologically advanced prostheses help patients do everything from hold a coffee mug to grip a pen.
