Varos. Right from the start

The Varos socket is a socket solution that benefits transfemoral amputees starting in the rehabilitation phase as well as later during treatment with the final prosthesis.
One key advantage is the option to independently adapt the socket circumference to fluctuations in the volume of the residual limb and to everyday activities by simply turning the closure – as needed. This offers numerous benefits in everyday life, from an enhanced feeling of safety to the potential for better movement control.

The Varos liner was developed to be compatible with the Varos socket. Contact between the Varos liner and and fabric adhesive strips in the socket result in a secure hold in the socket. Plus, pressure distribution provided by the liner ensure a comfortable fit. Additionally, the Varos socket can be fabricated in significantly less time than a conventional socket.
