Hip Disarticulation and Hemipelvectomy Re-Defined

Instead of encapsulating the entire pelvis with a thick bulky bucket, our patented, lightweight Bikini Socket™ and ultra-conforming Iliac Crest Stabilizers™ provide a more direct biomechanical link between the prosthesis and its user, resulting in superior stability, comfort, and quality of life for all activity levels. 

The End of Rigid Sockets

The unique conformability of the Socket-less Socket™ technology radically changes comfort and quality of life for those who are fit with it.  Medicare, insurance, and VA approved – and it costs the exact same as an antiquated rigid socket.  Don’t settle for the same status quo.

Cool and Breathable

Hot sweaty encapsulated sockets and socks are things of the past. The unique open socket design dissipates heat and keeps the limb cool, which eliminates sweating issues for most users.

Self-Adjustable Fit

Shoes have laces. Shirts have buttons. Belts have buckles. Our
clothes are adjustable – Shouldn’t your socket be adjustable too?
Our uniquely adjustable and conforming socket design gives you full control to dynamically capture the limb shape in real-time,
and makes the socket feel like a part of you. The Iliac Crest
Stabilizers™ are so conforming that you could fold them up in
your hand. Now you can maintain that 7am fit all day, without
adding socks. If you’re the kind of person who wants full control
of how your socket fits, this technology is for you.

Increased quality of life through comfort

As comfortable as a socket should be – sitting or standing. No more impinging of the socket into your abdomen or rib cage during sitting, or sitting on a bulky hump of plastic. Sitting with a prosthetic and even bending forward to tie your shoes is now so comfortable you’ll forget you are wearing it.

Ridiculously Light

Hot sweaty encapsulated sockets are things of the past. The unique open socket design dissipates heat and keeps the limb cool, which eliminates sweating issues for most users. Our NASA-Inspired lightweight design and materials are only a fraction of what conventional sockets weight – with a typical weight reduction of several pounds. At 1/3 the size and 1/3 the weight of conventional bucket sockets, you’ll be amazed at how light a socket can feel.

The Biggest Advancement in Hip Sockets, Since the Bikini Socket™.

CONFORMING AS A HAMMOCK

In our continued evolution of great socket designs, we’ve improved the best hip socket design around. The Hammock Casting Stand™ captures high resolution anatomical contouring through integrating a fabric hammock mesh in the casting process, giving equal weight distribution throughout the entire socket, and eliminating point specific ischial loading. The Bikini Socket™ is therefore as comfortable as sitting in a hammock. The casting shape becomes the final socket shape. It’s that simple.
