About Dynamic Solutions
By overcoming potential obstacles to a more dynamic lifestyle it is possible to reduce the impact of limb loss on the wider community, as well as the individual. For people with a dynamic lifestyle, a good liner and a comfortable socket are the basis for effective, secure suspension. Comfort is also critical if you are on your feet for long periods, perhaps at work or caring for others. A prosthetic knee should offer fluid, natural movement with a suitable level of stability, while a foot module needs to incorporate great energy return and the range of motion with smooth roll-over resulting in less sound side loading.
Taking a more dynamic role
The more experienced prosthetic user engages increasingly with the more dynamic challenges of everyday life – from shopping and gardening, to light work and longer walks. The choice of prosthetic solution is critical in supporting people to play an active role in society, to return to work where appropriate and enjoy life to the full.
