Prefabricated Orthotics

Prefabricated Orthoses are stock items that can be provided and fitted by our Orthotists. These items can be provided quickly and are often suitable for acute injuries and post-operative treatment and may be required for a relatively short amount of time while healing occurs.

Custom Orthotics

Custom orthoses are bespoke braces and supports that are designed and made specifically for individual clients.  Custom orthoses are usually prescribed for chronic conditions and designed for long term use. Our Orthotists work closely with referrers and clients to design the orthosis to best meet their requirements.

Bioness L300 Go System

bioness systemThe L300 Go system lifts your foot if you have drop foot, which can occur as a result of diseases of the central nervous system such as multiple sclerosis and infantile cerebral palsy or after a stroke. This improves your gait pattern, making it smoother and safer. The L300 Go stimulates the nerves that the central nervous system can no longer control. This is done using functional electrical stimulation with small electrical pulses. One electrode controls two stimulation channels. They are simply placed on your lower leg with a cuff and ensure that dorsiflexion is well balanced. If the knee is also unstable, the L300 Go can also trigger knee flexion and extension with an additional surface stimulator.


Multi-channel stimulation ensures well-balanced dorsiflexion.
The L300 Go also provides support in case of knee instability.
Intelligent 3D motion detection generates the stimulating pulse at exactly the right time.
An app can control the dorsiflexion system and measures your activity.

C-Leg 4 Microprocessor Knees

C Leg right side view
Presenting with numerous innovative features, the C-Leg 4 empowers the user to tackle anything that daily life has to offer, from stairs and ramps, to varying terrains and even walking backwards.

With each movement the knee makes, its integrated microprocessor receives and processes sensor signals, intelligently controlling the knee in real time.

Bluetooth®  - The C-Leg 4's integrated Bluetooth® technology means that it can communicate directly with your devices, allowing it to connect and disconnect with ease.

Inertial Motion Unit (IMU) - Inside the C-Leg 4 sits an IMU made up of gyroscope and acceleration sensors - this allows the knee's processes to be measured and controlled based on motion analysis.

Hydraulic Unit  - The C-Leg 4's intelligent hydraulic unit is responsible for controlling the knee, continuously modifying resistance against flexion and extension during the stance and swing phase, responding to the needs of the patient.

New Carbon Frame Design  - Constructed using strong, high-grade and lightweight carbon, to carry you through daily life and protect the electronics - whilst the hydraulic unit and the battery lie inside the housing of the knee.

ALLUX™ is the world’s first polycentric microprocessor stance-and-swing-phase controlled knee. The unique concept boasts a dual safety system based on inherent polycentric stability factors and microprocessor control. The polycentric design’s greater toe clearance means less risk of stumbling; however, in case of a stumble, the microprocessor immediately increases the hydraulic resistance to prevent the knee from sudden buckling.

  • Weight limit: 275 lbs (125 kg)
  • Knee weight: 1510g
  • Height: 294mm
  • Build height: 287mm
  • Max. flexion: 155 degrees
  • Water resistance: IP42
  • Battery life: approx. 4 days (5,000 steps per day on prosthetic side)
  • Application range: low to high activities

Ossur Proflex Foot

pro flexpivot
All Pro-Flex feet feature a unique and proprietary 3-blade design with a footblade that incorporates a full effective toe lever and a more anatomical split toe. This innovative design helps generate exceptional toe-off energy and a fluid, natural progression from heel strike to toe-off. Now available with heel-height adjustability.

Pro-Flex® Pivot

Pro-Flex Pivot is a prosthetic foot that uses complementing levers connected through pivots to create mechanically-powered push off. Combining 27° of ankle motion and significantly greater ankle power than conventional carbon fiber feet, it closely mimics regular biomechanics, delivering a proven 11% reduction in load on the contralateral limb.

Mechanically-powered push off
27° of ankle motion
Sound-side protection by reducing load and impact by 11% and 15% reduction in external knee varus moment
Natural progression of center of pressure, closely mimics the natural foot
Higher patient satisfaction

Össur recommends using Pro-Flex Pivot in conjunction with the sleeveless vacuum suspension system Unity®, which adds minimal weight and no extra build height, and does not interfere with Pro-Flex dynamics. Unity is designed to provide secure suspension in combination with Iceross Seal-In® technology, while stabilizing volume fluctuations and maintaining comfortable socket fit throughout the day.

Taska Hand

7 key features diag v2The intention behind the design of TASKA™ was to make a super practical waterproof hand that “gives” and “flexes”. This may be why it feels more natural to use than others currently available, and why so many people easily adapt to its movements.

7 Key Features

  • Knuckle Breakaway
    Anti-damage knuckle breakaway is user-resettable to provide additional robustness.
  • The TASKA™ Control System
    Simple touch and go Easy to use GRIP CYCLE buttons provide simple access to grips and client diagnostic help.
  • The TASKA™ Low Profile Wrist Option
    A low profile wrist option allows the waterproofing to be extended up to the socket. The LP Wrist also allows for 90ºdeg of mechanical rotation.
  • Inbuilt Flexible Wrist
    Locks easily. Every model of the TASKA hand has an inbuilt flexible wrist with three lockable positions as well as centre biased free flexion.
  • Motorised Thumb Rotation
    Motorised thumb rotation mimics the real movement of the hand and improves grip speed.
  • Confident Grip
    Hold things with more confidence. Soft pads between the fingers and on fingertips, complement the flexible fingers to provide unparalleled grip security.
  • Flexible Fingers
    The fingers on the TASKA hand are flexible and can laterally spread allowing the hand to effectively grip a wide variety of objects firmly. “To be able to grip confidently is huge.
