Silcare Breathe Liners feature laser drilled perforations along the length and distal end to allow moisture to escape, resulting in drier skin and a healthier environment for the residual limb. Managing moisture in this way helps to reduce the damaging effects of friction and improves comfort and control.
The action of walking and weight bearing on the liner also expels air through the pores, and with the use of a one way valve, helps to generate a better vacuum and more secure fit, allowing the user to wear their prosthesis for longer as they benefit from an improved fit throughout the day.
The SmartIP microprocessor controlled knee employs intelligent programming technology that dynamically programs the knee to optimum swing settings for the individual Level 3 activity user, reducing the amount of energy expended by trans-femoral prosthesis users. The weight activated stance control provides an adjustable smooth and yielding transition at toe off.
Comfortable gait from very slow to very fast walking speeds
Smoother speed progression because of enhanced program
Weight activated stance control
Stanceflex option improves comfort
Battery life expectancy 9-12 months under normal usage
This award-winning design continues to add a little magic to prosthetic gait. It cushions shock and shear forces caused by vertical and twisting motion and protects the skin interface from abrasion and discomfort.
