Use of silicone in prosthesis construction
A fitting socket is the basis for an optimal prosthetic fitting. If it does not fit perfectly, even the most modern prosthesis fitting cannot be used properly. In our own silicone workshop, we manufacture a combination of silicone inner socket and carbon outer socket for you.
In addition, the silicone increases the adhesion of the socket to the residual limb. The use of the HTV silicone socket provides greater safety, as the movement of the residual limb can be optimally transferred to the prosthesis socket and the prosthesis. This also significantly improves functionality.
The HTV silicone socket can be used with any degree of mobility!
We manufacture everything in our silicone workshop
Another advantage is that sensitive and short residual limbs can be treated very well, thanks to the soft silicone finish. Due to the elastic and flexible shaft edge, the shaft adapts to every movement. The ergonomic shape of the outer shaft supports the freedom of movement.
A particular advantage of this technology is that scar retractions, bone growths (so-called exostoses) or other sensitive areas can be bedded using different silicone hardnesses.
We can manufacture the HTV silicone shaft in our own silicone workshop. This keeps the distances short and you have a contact person on site. In addition, we can produce your socket in an individual colour. In case of any skin intolerances, we can produce the socket in a colourless version – also for allergy sufferers!
