Prostheses for Children

Our modular system is also suitable for the treatment of children. By reducing the size of the components, correct proportional prosthesis care for 2- to 12-year-olds has become possible. The transition to an adult-modular system is smooth. Special hinge structures cater to the special needs of paediatric prostheses.

We recommend verifying the components every third month because the system is subjected to extreme stresses. These inspections should be carried out with regard to functional performance, tubular adapters, possible distortions and damages. Structured and functional parts made of aluminum and titanium coming from the adults’ product range are preferably used for larger children.
