A Step Ahead Prosthetics is fully qualified and equipped to evaluate, guide, fit and connect potential patients directly with Osseointegration experts in the US and around the world.
Osseointegration – the revolutionary procedure that substitutes the traditional prosthetic socket interface with a titanium rod, implanted in the bone of a residual limb, has become a viable alternative for amputees. As the existing bone and the coupling system fuse together, a single structure is formed which offers a number of advantages over a prosthetic socket including:
No more fit issues due to weight gain/loss
Fast and simple donning/doffing
No liners mean no perspiration problems
Better outcomes for hard-to-fit patients
No pressure sores or skin irritation
