prosthetic leg

Prosthetic limbs are becoming another part of our client base these days, we already supply to podiatrists custom fitted composite orthotics, and custom fitted composite seats for the cerebral palsy association.

Now we are having good results with our prosthetic legs. We have just completed another composite leg for a patient. We are utilising a unique method where the mould (leg profile) is 'washed' out after manufacture to create a hollow structure that is sealed by the leg socket at one end and the reinforced foot attachment at the other. This means the leg can meet the weight target set for us by the prosthetist while maintaining an extra strong construction to meet the rigours of everyday movement.
