The three essentials of an ideal prosthesis: 1. Socket Comfort, 2. As light as possible consistent with durability and 3. Good Alignment without the use of additional metal components.
The most common complaint of amputees today is that their artificial limb is too heavy. In response, the research staff at Rothschild’s Orthopedic Appliances developed the lightweight prosthesis known as the Light-Pro prosthesis.
About the The Light-Pro
The Best Lightweight Below Knee Prosthesis
Why we consider the The Light-Pro prosthesis to be the best prosthesis made. Unlike most artificial limbs that are assembled from pre-made heavy metal parts, the Light-Pro is completely handmade by the prosthetist, from lightweight plastic. This results in prosthesis engineered to the patient, reducing weight by 50%-300%.
If your prosthesis presently weighs:
9 pounds it will reduce to 2.5 pounds
5 pounds it will reduce to 2 pounds
3 pounds it will reduce to 1.5 pounds
Without compromising strength – WEIGHT MAKES A VERY BIG DIFFERENCE!
