Below Knee Prosthesis

The below-knee prosthesis of BMVSS has been designed indigenously. The shank is fabricated from locally manufactured, durable, high-quality, high-density polyethylene pipes (HDPE). The socket design used is either total contact, vacuum-formed using a polypropylene sheet, or open-ended, using HDPE. This custom-made shank/socket is fitted with the Jaipur Foot.

A functional below-knee prosthesis looks like a normal limb, allowing for the range of movement required for normal human locomotion. The total contact socket provides better sensory feedback to the wearer and prevents edema.

  • The BMVSS below-knee prosthesis is a Rapid-fit Limb. It can be fitted on the same or the next day unless there is a complication
  • Bio-mechanically, it is based on the Standard Patella-tendon Concept; fabricated and aligned accordingly.
  • Functionally and cosmetically, it is close to the natural human limb; it allows the amputee to walk on undulated terrain, squat, sit cross-legged, run, climb a mountain or a tree, ride a bicycle, or drive a car.
  • It is a Minimal Maintenance Limb.
  • The prosthesis is Water-proof.
  • The user can walk barefoot or with shoes on.
