Breakthrough innovation for elderly amputees
For many people with limb-loss, age and poor health can have a significant impact on mobility and confidence. The use of a prosthetic limb can be challenging in itself, so feeling secure and comfortable from the outset is vital if the user is to maintain a level of independence, however small.
A majority of low active amputees never receive a prosthesis. Enter Connect®, an adjustable socket ideally suited for low active amputees, who often struggle with conventional sockets. Connect offers a solution that is easy to put on while sitting and is comfortable to wear while sitting, standing and walking, making it appropriate for more low active users than traditional sockets.
Its unique design simplifies the entire process for same-day fitting just about anywhere—clinic, hospital, home or nursing facility giving more amputees a chance of a life without limitations.
At Össur we are devoted to improve people's mobility. We focus our efforts and expertise on helping people to be confident, safe and mobile, regardless of injuries or conditions that could compromise their quality of life.
