Hip Disarticulation Components
Socket - The connection between user’s residual limb and prosthesis leg. The Socket transfers user’s weight comfortably through the prosthetic leg to the ground. It is the most critical component/part of a prosthetic leg.
Suspension - To secure the prosthesis to the residual limb
Hip Joint - Hip joint comes in different type from single axis hinged that only bend forward and backward to polycentric hip joint also referred to as “four-bar” joints. It provides a smooth walking pattern by closely mirroring the range of motion of a biological hip.Rotators can be added to allow the wearer to rotate the lower part of their prosthesis.
Knee Joint - Mimic the function of a human knee to allow flexion and extension of a prosthetic leg. It also provides reliable support when standing, and allow smooth and controlled motion when walking, as well as unrestricted movement when sitting. There are many types of knee system to select from. A prosthetist will select a suitable knee to fit the user’s age, health, activity level, financial status and lifestyle.
Pylon - Attach socket to prosthetic foot (terminal device). This can be adjusted according to the user’s height.
Prosthetic Foot - Artificial foot is attached below the tube.
