Torsion Adapters

At a Glance

  • Optimization of mobility and gait symmetry
  • Reduction of shearing forces otherwise transferred to the residual limb
  • Reduce likelihood of pressure sores, rash, and ulcers

Torsion adapters have significant advantages for the wearer, regardless of their amputation level. Because the socket needs to securely fit the residual limb, the Otto Bock torsion adapter compensates for this necessary lack of movement. By helping to reduce compensatory movements, they increase and help smooth the gait pattern.

The torsion adapters also provide more mobility for recreational activities like playing golf or tennis. In addition they minimize the shear forces on the residual limb – forces which can lead to a painful tissue breakdown. The torsional movement can also help reduce strain on the residual limb while under load.
