Hip prosthetic socket with silicone case
Prosthesis in case of hip joint extraction
Prostheses in the extraction of the hip joint are intended for patients after amputation of the thigh at a level less than the upper third and above. The prosthesis of the hip joint consists of four main sections: a prosthetic socket, a hip joint, a knee joint and a foot. There is one type of prosthetic socket, 3 types of hip nodes, 8 types of knee joints and 18 types of feet. The choice of all elements is carried out only after a personal examination and consultation by a technician-protezist. The average term of prosthesis (from the moment of removal of plaster cast) is four weeks, in cases of complex prosthesis, the terms are specified during the consultations and for example. The weight of the prosthesis depends on the selected foot, knee, hip and additional functional and cosmetic parts, and averages 6 kg.
