A method (100) of ordering a custom prosthetic or orthopedic device includes manually moving a portable scanner (5) about an anatomical part of a patient to generate three-dimensional information representative of the anatomical part. The portable scanner (5) is coupled to a mobile device (3) routinely carried by a user. The method involves obtaining order information associated with the patient on the mobile device (3) and transmitting an order (29) with the mobile device (3) to an intended recipient. The order (29) contains at least a portion of the three-dimensional information and at least a portion of the order information.

A strap tightener assembly has a base, a tightening device mounted on the base and movable relative thereto, and a strap assembly coupled to the tightening device. The tightening device provides incremental movement of the strap assembly relative to the base at a plurality of predefined settings. A cover extends over the strap assembly and connects to the base so that the base and the cover form a channel permitting movement of the strap assembly therethrough. The cover defines an elongate slot extending along a portion of a length of the cover, and the strap assembly has an indicator identifying the relative location of the strap assembly to the cover. A strap is securable to the strap assembly.

A tightening system (100) includes a housing (112) and a spool (106) situated within the housing (112). The spool (106) is rotatable about an axis (A) within the housing (112). A tensioning element (102) having an elongate configuration is rotatably linked to the spool (106) and a tension control mechanism (110) is operatively connected to the spool (106). The tension control mechanism (110) is arranged to automatically shift when tension in the tensioning element (102) reaches a predetermined level, which, in turn, releases at least part of the tension in the tensioning element (102).

A valve (200) for use with a prosthetic socket (14) includes a body (202) defining a first opening (226), a second opening (228) adapted to be in fluid communication with the socket cavity (15), and a passageway (224) formed between the openings (226, 228). A membrane (206) is flexibly seated on the body (202) over the first opening (226). The membrane (206) is movable between a closed position which the first opening (226) is sealed and fluid communication between the first opening (226) such that the second opening (228) is inhibited, and an open position in which the first opening (226) is unsealed such that fluid can flow through the passageway (224). The membrane (206) includes a first part (234) connected to a release element (208) that is operable to move the membrane (206) between the open and closed positions and a free part (232) that is operable independent of the first part (234) to move the membrane (206) between the open and closed positions.

A suspension liner is provided for use as an interface between a residual limb and a prosthetic socket. The liner has an elongate, generally conical liner body formed from at least one material segment that is at least radially elastically extensible from a relaxed non-extended condition and including proximal and distal end areas, and a seal component connected to the liner body and having an exterior surface defining at least one exterior seal protruding from the exterior surface and extending radially outwardly from the seal component relative to a longitudinal axis of the liner body. The at least one interior seal is located along an interior surface of the seal component and defines at least one blade extending obliquely toward the liner body. A portion of the seal component carrying the interior seal extends freely and is movable relative to the liner body.

An Achilles heel wedge (200) has a back part (292), a front part (294), and a longitudinal axis (A) extending in a longitudinal direction between the back part (292) and the front part (294). A first wedge section (256) defines a bottom surface (270) and a top surface (272). The top surface (272) of the first wedge section (256) forms a convex portion (276) curving along the longitudinal axis (A) and extending between side portions (296) of the first wedge section (256). The convex portion (276) is positionable under the longitudinal arch of a users foot during use. A second wedge section (254) is removably attachable to the bottom surface (270) of the first wedge section (256). The second wedge section (254) defines substantially parallel top and bottom surfaces (264, 266) and a ramped edge (268) at or near a front of the second wedge section (254). The ramped edge (268) extends downwardly and forwardly relative to the first wedge section (256) and the top surface (264) of the second wedge section (254).

A versatile orthopedic device (10) is arranged to convert between ligament and osteoarthritis treatment, and to accommodate a variety of leg anatomies. The orthopedic device is preferably configured as a double-upright brace indicating struts (16, 17), frame component sections (24, 26) and associated hinges (20, 24) preferably intended to be along both medial and lateral sides of a wearers leg. A strap kit (48) with an unloading strap system may be added to the orthopedic device for conversion into an orthopedic device for osteoarthritis relief.


A pad assembly (10) comprises a padding (12) defining first and second surfaces (18, 20), and includes a first layer (42) being resilient and accessible from the first surface (18) and a second layer (44) being resilient and underlying and secured to the first layer (42). First and second removable sections (36) are formed from at least one of the first and second layers (42, 44) and are arranged in a pattern and separated by edge clearances (38). Each of the first and second removable sections (36) is tearable from the padding (12) such that a residual portion (56) of the removable section (36) remains when at least one of the first and second removable sections (36) is removed from the padding (12). The pad assembly (10) may include a strap (16), and a substantially rigid or rigid shell (14) connecting to the padding (12) and strap (16).

Various features for improving the performance of prosthetic sport feet are provided. Prosthetic sport feet according to the present disclosure can be designed to improve performance in board sport activities, for example, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, and the like. A prosthetic board sports foot can have a wide profile and large area for contacting the board or ground to improve stability. The board sports foot can include a traction sole to reduce slippage on the board. The board sports foot can also include an attachment member for attaching the foot to a users residual limb or another prosthetic component. The attachment member can include a tendon designed to allow for flexibility over an initial short range of movement. The tendon can be interchangeable, and tendons having various stiffnesses can be provided.

A vacuum suspension system (20) includes a pump mechanism (200) operatively connectable to a prosthetic socket (10). The pump mechanism (200) has a first member (204) and a second member (202). First and second fluid chambers (217, 220) are located between the first and second members (204, 202). The second fluid chamber (220) is fluidly separate from the first fluid chamber (217), and arranged for fluid communication with the socket (210). An increase in volume of the first fluid chamber (217) mechanically expands the second fluid chamber (220), which, in turn, creates a vacuum pressure in the second fluid chamber (220).
