Weatherproof & Waterproof Devices by Össur
When you encounter water, understanding what your prosthesis is designed to withstand is important. If you have regular contact with water, whether it’s visiting the beach, a pool, or your bathtub, check with your prosthetist to plan ahead and make sure your prosthesis gives the support you need.
In different environments, you will encounter everything from salt to fresh water, and every component in your prosthesis needs to be designed for your day.
Please refer to the instructions (IFU) for each product for exact waterproof specifications.
