- Easy to clean socket system with inner socket that can be sterilised
- Material that is safe from a dermatology perspective
- High surface adhesion for an excellent fit on the residual limb
- Flexible socket edges that adapt to movements
- Silicone gel pads for sensitive areas of the residual limb
- High level of wearer comfort thanks to a flexible ulna opening in the outer socket
For many amputees, a prosthesis is essential at work and in their free time. The objective of every fitting is to compensate for lost or limited physical functions with the help of a technology solution that is as functional and visually unobtrusive as possible.
But in addition to the functional characteristics, a successful prosthetic fitting also depends on the prosthetic socket.
With the new SiOCX® TR socket, Ottobock is offering you a new fitting standard in terms of socket comfort for the upper limbs.
The use of silicone improves adhesion of the socket on the residual limb. This enhances the functionality of the fitting in terms of prosthesis control as well as the level of security perceived by the user. A donning aid makes the prosthetic socket easy to put on.
The comfortable silicone inner socket features skin-friendly characteristics. Medical grade silicone of the highest documented purity is used. The material is breathable and hypoallergenic, can be sterilised and therefore assures improved hygiene.
Using silicone with varying degrees of hardness as well as integrated gel cushions enhances wearer comfort, even for sensitive areas of the residual limb. The soft edge of the socket also increases the range of motion for the residual limb and makes it easier to master everyday challenges. Thanks to the flexible ulna opening in the carbon fibre outer socket, the residual limb can adjust when the arm is rested on something or during movements. This makes the prosthesis comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time.
Thanks to improved residual limb adhesion and the soft silicone material, fittings for residual limbs that are short or sensitive to pressure do not pose a problem.
