Socket-less Socket Transfemoral – by MartinBionics
Transfemoral and knee disarticulation re-defined.
We’ve re-invented sockets from the ground up. No more static socket shape. No more hard ischial seat. No more loss of suction. The Socket-less Socket truly conforms to the user, providing a custom-fit socket every time you put it on.
The future of prosthetics.
If you’re the kind of person who wants full control of how your socket fits, this technology is for you. Fitting a prosthetic socket is now micro-adjustable in real-time to create a socket as individual as the toughest patient.
As conforming as a hammock.
Our patent pending swing technology perfectly conforms to the user just like a hammock, providing a soft floating cushioned seat on every step.
Micro-adjustable comfort, every morning.
Conventional prosthetics are static in shape, and require frequent fitting adjustments to match the ever-changing human body. Our technology fits differently. We enable you to micro-adjust for a comfortable fit every time you put your prosthesis on. Our new z-straps give an ultra low profile look.
Huge advancements for small users.
Introducing Pediatric size Socket-less Sockets. Same great technology now available from toddler to adults.
Our NASA-based lightweight design and materials are only a fraction of what conventional sockets weight – with a typical weight reduction of nearly 2 pounds. You’ll be amazed at how light a socket can feel.
The socket-less socket fabrication kit can be used to make any number of types of custom molded socket designs ranging from near-conventional, to more progressive. As a “lego set of prosthetics”, the socket configuration is custom fit to each user according to their specific and varied needs – each providing excellent comfort and conformity.
The end of rigid brims.
The new SwingBrim™ technology offers the same dynamic brim comfort as the full Socket-less Socket, but can be integrated into existing sockets. Its the difference between sitting on a hard chair versus into a soft hammock.
The Flower just got more beautiful.
Our flower distal cup technology provides a modular pin attachment and nearly eliminates the milking effect found in traditional pin systems.
The Biggest Advancement in Sockets, since the Socket-less Socket™.
In our continued evolution of great socket designs, we’ve improved the best socket design around. The new AirHammock™ easily integrates into any Socket-less Socket™ fitting level, and provides real-time conformity of the limb shape with the familiar containment and control of a traditional static inner socket. Its open structure dissipates heat, maintaining a cooler socket.
SharkSkin Suspension™, Inspired by Nature.
The new Sharkskin Suspension™ provides an elegantly simple new suspension option for Socket-less Socket™ users. The bionic-inspired directional texture pads resembles a shark’s skin to securely lock the user within their device.
Donning and Doffing.
Donning and Doffing.
Donning as easy and comfortable as putting on your favorite pair of tennis shoes.
Smooth like Butter.
The compliant fabric-based socket cushions your step. Walking has never felt so smooth.
