space Every prosthesis Leimkuehler, Inc. fabricates is specifically designed for each patient through the use of casts, measurements and working models.
space The conventional above elbow and below elbow prosthesis consists of a socket, triceps cuff, suspension and cable systems with flexible or rigid hinges. Suspension is achieved with an intimate socket fit and a harness of Dacron straps.
space Below elbow control systems consist of one stainless steel cable attached to the harness at one end and the terminal device at the other. The harness transmits muscle and joint movement to the cable system which in turn operates the terminal device.
space Above elbow control systems require two stainless steel cables. One flexes the prosthetic elbow joint and operates the terminal device. The second cable allows for the locking and unlocking of the elbow.
space There are a variety of terminal devices available—both hands and hooks. Hooks offer more versatility, lighter weight and increased durability. The hand can be functional or cosmetic.
