Information for Veterans

Veterans’ Prosthetic Panel

Veterans who have lost a limb whilst in military service or whose limb loss is attributable to an injury sustained whilst in service qualify for funding for their prostheses. Funding requests go through the Veterans’ Prosthetics Panel (VPP) which was established in 2012 and is an excellent way of ensuring that veterans can access high quality prostheses regardless of which Disablement Service Centre (DSC) they attend.

Continue to be your best, with the best

Ottobock was founded in 1919 to help those wounded in WWI get back to everyday life. Since then, we’ve maintained close relationships with veterans to research, develop and distribute advanced technology specifically suited to the needs of injured veterans.

Not only do we provide the best prosthetic devices to veterans but we also work alongside BLESMA who offer the best advice and support for limbless veterans. Find out more about this amazing charity here

Genium with Empower

Based on human movement as the model, the Genium has been developed even further since its launch in 2011. The result is a noticeably smoother gait and even better support and safety in everyday situations, for instance on ramps, in confined spaces or when changing walking speeds. When combined with Empower, the only powered propulsion foot available, you end up with a powerful intuitive solution.


Genium X3 with Triton Side Flex

With the Triton Side Flex, we have developed a prosthetic foot that provides extraordinary side-to-side flexibility and when combined with Genium X3, offers the ideal agile solution for active amputees.

Getting your Limb Solutions

Getting your Limb Solutions

A centralised fund is available through the NHS and administered by the Veterans Prosthetic Panel (VPP). It was created to help support veterans who were injured while serving their country. This fund covers the cost of any prostheses that meet your clinical needs and this includes anything from new sockets, liners and componentry such as Genium or Genium X3.

Once you have been to see your prosthetist and your clinical needs agreed, your prosthetist will process your application for funding and pending approval, will arrange a convenient fitting date for you to get you new limb solutions and continue to be the best with the best.

The great news is, veteran funding can be accessed repeatedly as your prostheses age and the warranties expire.
