Long AK component suggestion - USA
Posted By: Tandem O&P on July 27, 2012
I have a long-time patient who has always used the Mauch SNS knee in an
exoskeletal OWW knee/shin. Those parts are no longer in production and I
am looking for alternatives. He is an active guy with a warehouse job
using a skid loader and other equipment, so the amputated side MUST touch
the floor while sitting in order for him to do his job. He is a K3 and
weighs 210 pounds.
I apologize to Otto Bock, but I have already tried the 5R60 it did not hold
up for this gentleman. I apologize to Ossur, the Total Knee 2000 did not
work either; the machining has too much play.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The knee design must
have a minimal build height and offer variable cadence.
Have a great weekend,
Lisa Schoonmaker, CPO
