Amparo GmbH has developed the Confidence Socket, a revolution in prosthetic socket technology. We can provide someone with a prosthetic leg in less than 1 hour. Our material is remoldable and therefore can be re-used, saving huge costs to health providers. Last but not least, all the tools required to perform this process can fit into a sports bag, so people in rural and remote areas of the world can also have the opportunity to walk again.
So, contrary to traditional methods, the Confidence Socket is molded directly onto the residual limb like a second skin. This method simplifies the traditional fabrication process to a few steps and minimizes the margin for error when making the socket - allowing for a perfect fit, every time. Now patients can start their rehabilitation without excessive back and fourth with their technician.
The product was designed for below-knee amputees as an interim prosthesis. It is made fast, so that fitting can occur anywhere and with optimal efficiency, so rehabilitation can begin immediately. By accommodating volume changes throughout the entire recovery phase, it provides maximum comfort. Now amputees can rely on just one socket for their entire interim phase and walk again with confidence.
The Confidence Socket System can be completely remolded multiple times due to its innovative low-temperature thermoplastic blend. This offers total comfort to recent amputees during their recovery phase, as the residual limb dramatically changes its volume and shape. After reheating the socket, technicians can easily provide a perfect socket fit.
The Confidence Socket can be fitted anywhere outside of an orthopedic workshop, either in the hospital or at the patients home. There is no heavy machinery required. In fact, all tools fit in a sports bag. It's excellent for technicians who want to offer mobile services, or have to travel long distances to provide a prosthesis. Therefore, ideal for patients who have a hard time commuting or need to receive home care.
Behind this idea, there is a multinational and multidisciplinary team of individuals with public health, business, industrial design, and engineering backgrounds. United in our passion to make a real difference and a positive impact to the lives of amputees all over the world. more
