What is Osseointegration?
Osseointegrated Prosthesis for the Rehabilitation of Amputees
What are the benefits?
The main difference between a conventional socket prosthesis and a bone anchored prosthesis is the absence of a socket, which means the prosthesis always fits, always attaches correctly and is always firmly held in place.
The absence of a socket also relieves other problems directly related to the use of a socket, such as heat, chafing and discomfort. It also eliminates pressure sores and pain.
The OPRA surgical system allows better sitting comfort, stable attachment and better quality of life.
