AK water ski prosthesis
Posted By: Garth Knapp on October 30, 2012
I haven't been able to find any specific information regarding prosthetic
suspension for an AK when water skiing. I am hoping someone has had direct
experience with this.
I have a patient with a professional ski boat and an XT-9 knee who wants to
get back into water skiing. His primary concern is suspension.
I'm thinking about a seal-in liner with a Limb Logic vacuum system, in
conjunction with the thigh compression straps around the outside of his
custom wetsuit. We would like to avoid using a waist belt as auxiliary
Flotation for the prosthesis would be added in case of separation.
Thank you for your input.
