In addition to a functional reconstruction of the lost limb, many lower limb amputees also desire an inconspicuous or enhanced appearance. The outer design of the prosthesis as a cosmetic functional fitting for all amputation levels of the lower limb is therefore of particular significance.
For this purpose Otto Bock offers cosmetic foam covers with which the individual features of users can be accounted for on the basis of the natural example.
An Otto Bock SuperSkin foam coating provides new features that facilitate a further improvement in the quality of the cosmetic cover.
With SuperSkin coating technology, the cosmetic foam cover can for example be spray-coated with a liquid polyurethane plastic (PUR). The applied coating is stretchable, splash water repellent, UV-resistant, and can be dyed to match the skin tone. Prostheses coated with Otto Bock SuperSkin have an even more natural appearance and, for example, they are more dirt-resistant.
