SafeLimb Transtibial Residual Limb Protector
During post-surgical care of transtibial amputation patients, the SafeLimb provides supportive protection of the residual limb if the patient falls.
Prosthetists will appreciate the SafeLimb’s unique design, materials and adaptability – which enhances the fit, suspension and patient compliance. A spherical compressive foam cushion mounted on a rigid plate – attatched to the struts at the distal end of the brace – prevents trauma to the surgical wound.
The length of the SafeLimb’s medial and lateral bars is adjustable, and the bars can also be hand-contoured to align with the degree of extension. The material interface is lightweight and breathable, with anterior-opening and anterior straps for ease of application. A proprietary “SupraPatellar Strap” (above the knee) effectively prevents migration.
Features and Benefits:
- Post-surgical support & protection
- Five sizes; universal for left or right leg
- Bars can be hand-contoured & lengthened
- Anterior opening & straps for easy application
