It may seem obvious, but the simplest prosthetic solutions are often the best. Our experience in above knee socket technology has proven this over and over. Certain systems often offer marginal benefits, but if they are difficult to work with to the point of being a burden, then they are rarely worth it.
MCOP has worked closely with industry leaders like OSSUR and other manufacturers to refine the simplest suspension systems for above knee amputees, meeting your needs with a simple, elegant solution.
We are all individuals, and no two people needing prosthetics are ever the same.
Selection of an appropriate prosthetic knee and foot system is critical to your success. Our criteria for product selection is based on these priorities; reliability first, safety and stability second, and features third. Prosthetic knee joints come in many types, from the classic, yet effective mechanical knees to highly advanced microprocessor-controlled and motor powered knees. Only an experienced clinician can recommend a complete prosthetic leg that meets all of your needs.
Our work with the military allows us to test each and every product on the market, with some of the most active amputees that the world has likely ever seen. This experience has shown us how, when and why different products fail. As a result, our team has become a trusted resource for many manufacturers to help them improve their product designs. Like Ossur, Otto Bock, and iWalk, you can trust our recommendations.
Take a look at some of the advanced technology that we are currently using on our technology page.
We also are acutely aware of the wear and tear that an active above knee amputee endures on their joints, muscles and back. As a result, we emphasize symmetry and gait training as a critical element of success. We are proud to team up with leaders in amputee rehabilitation and leading physical therapists to make strengths of your weaknesses and iron out any bad habits developed over time.
