Transtibial and Symes Transformed

Rigid sockets are uncomfortable – so we fixed them. The ultra-comfortable Socket-less Socket™ ICON BK™ is now available for Transtibial and Symes users. Below the knee sockets no longer have to remain static in shape or trap heat. The Socket-less Socket™ conformable materials and open frame design allow the limb to flex and breath.

Comfort of a sneaker

Shoes have laces. Shirts have buttons. Belts have buckles. Our clothes are adjustable – Shouldn’t your socket be adjustable too? Our adjustable sockets provide you full control over how your socket fits, every time you put it on.

Dynamic conformity

The human body is a mechanical marvel. Whether standing, sitting, walking, or running, our limbs dynamically change shape and contouring. We believe the socket should conform to your every move. Our patent pending soft posterior brim lets the socket conform to match your body.

As individual as you

The Socket-less Socket™ ICON BK™ can be customized to each user according to their specific and varied needs – including type of suspension, contouring, and fit. Real-time user-adjustability gives you freedom to ensure your socket fits the way you want.

Suspension-sleeve-less

Hot sweaty suspension sleeves are a thing of the past. Below the knee sockets no longer require bulky suspension sleeves bunching behind the knee and up the thigh. The ingenious SharkSkin Suspension™ can offer the security of a suspension sleeve, but without the sleeve.

Stay Cool

The AirHammock™ Modular Inner Socket actively conforms to the dynamic motion of the human body, yet provides the familiar containment and control of a traditional static inner socket. Its open structure dissipates heat, maintaining a cooler socket.

Testimonials

“This socket feels so secure. It moves with me more than any other socket I’ve worn.”

Justin, Transfemoral Amputee, USA

“I can’t believe how comfortable this socket is. My ischial seat has always been so uncomfortable, and now it is the most comfortable part of the socket.”

David, Transfemoral Amputee, USA

“I love the modularity of this socket design. I can now try fitting adjustments in real-time. It’s like the Lego’s of prosthetics. This is the biggest advancement in prosthetic sockets for our field in a long time. This is truly the future of sockets.”

Joel, Prosthetist, USA

“The socket feels incredible – it’s super comfy and soft.  It provides me the same support I get in my traditional socket but without uncomfortable ischial loading. The brim is one of the most common discomfort areas and it’s now been solved!”

David, Transfemoral Amputee, USA

“We had our first fitting today using the Iliac Crest Stabilizers…fantastic. The patient was almost in tears – he can’t believe how the socket is going to change his life so much. “Freedom of movement”… “so light”…. “fantastic” were just some of the words he used. Once again well done…great idea…we applaud you.”

BTerry, Prosthetist, UK

“I have just come back from my prosthetist after having a [hip disarticulation] test socket fabricated and tried it out with the Illiac Crest Stabilizers. Even though it was just a test socket, it was fantastic. As soon as I started to ratchet the stabilizers up, I could feel them pulling me down and into the minimal socket and literally within 3 strides it felt perfect. Absolutely no pistoning and it felt very secure. It felt like a part of me rather than a unwieldy lump hanging off my waist. Even though I say so myself I am amazed how good my walking is for a Hip Disartic. I will spread the word amongst my HD peers as it really deserves to be ‘out there’ and being used. Based on my experience thus far it should become the standard design rather than the ‘bucket’, which should be consigned to the history books.Great design and idea well done! From a very thankful and now much less restricted HD amp,”

Damian, Amputee, UK

“My name is Kenny Capritto and I’m a Prosthetist in Louisiana. I have a Hip Disarticulation patient who uses a C-leg, Helix hip and a traditional socket fabricated by Otto Bock of a flexible type of resin. He has been utilizing this combination for approximately 3 years and now wants to “streamline” his leg… The Bikini of Hip socket system looks amazing. HD patients around the world should send you a thank you card for developing something as an alternative to ‘buckets.”

Kenny Capritto, CPO, USA

“I just had a successful Bikini socket fit and just wanted to say I love it. I was wheelchair bound for 9 years until this socket design… Thank you for the research and development.”

Jessi, Amputee, USA

“It is so much more comfortable.  It feels like it’s a part of me. I really feel supported.”

Brendan, Transhumeral Amputee, USA

“It’s really responsive.  Before I couldn’t bend over and lock my elbow with the [traditional] figure 8 harness since it would ride up. This new Vest Harness also helps your posture, instead of being pulled forward like what I used to have. For a body-powered this is awesome!  I think it’s 100% better than the old figure 8 harness, for sure.”

Kirt, Transhumeral Amputee, USA

“I have so much better control.  I used to have to adjust my old harness back and forth a million times and I’ve never got it this good.”

 Kim, Transhumeral Amputee, USA

“The prosthesis feels much more attached and lighter using the fabric-based socket design. It is really comfortable. This socket is impressive.”

Jonathan, Amputee, USA

“This is one of the most forward-thinking socket designs in the field today…. Great design. It makes fitting shoulder level patients much more simple.”

Michael, CPO, USA
