Our prosthetic team understands your individual needs and lifestyle. Our goal is to restore and improve the active lifestyle for patients with mobility challenges. Scott Sabolich Ottobock.care features an extensive collection of prosthetic solutions for all types of patients and people, custom fabricated in our state-of-the-art lab by qualified technicians and prosthetists.
Patients missing an arm or hand have more prosthetic options than ever before. Advances in technology and lightweight contoured sockets have brought dramatic improvement to upper extremity prosthetics. Upper extremity care involves anything regarding the upper extremity including hand and fingers. Our upper extremity specialists are dedicated to helping you discover the prosthetic solution that best meet your needs and functional ability.
Upper Extremity Sockets
The socket is the critical first component in all our upper extremity prosthetic designs. Each socket is custom contoured to fit the bone, muscle, vascular and neurological areas of the residual limb. The result is a socket that has total contact with all the surfaces of the residual limb. That means greater comfort, increased muscle function, better suspension and superior range of motion.
Electrically powered or myoelectric prostheses offer a radically different approach to many conventional designs. With over a dozen different grip patterns and hand positions, a myoelectric prosthetic hand is designed to handle almost anything that you need to do in an average day: from eating meals and carrying bags, to opening doors, switching on lights, and typing. Individual motors in each finger allow you to move the hand and grip in a natural, coordinated way. Proportional speed control gives you precision control over delicate tasks.
The socket is the foundation of the prosthesis and comfort is what we specialize in. At Scott Sabolich Prosthetics, we create stable, comfortable sockets for lower extremity care. Our team has unmatched clinical expertise in virtually all levels of amputation. Since 1947 we have been recognized as a world leader in excellent prosthetic technology and care.
Do more with the Sabolich Socket
Older conventional sockets were rigid and uncomfortable and even painful. In 1992, John Sabolich created the patented Sabolich socket, a breakthrough design that provides comfort and stability. This lightweight socket is contoured to fit the bone, muscle and vascular structures of your residual limb and to provide unmatched comfort and functional ability. Since then, Scott Sabolich Prosthetics has taken this design to the next level. Our proprietary socket is unique to our clinic and our prosthetists have been through years of training and research to correctly fit the latest generation of designs.
Lower Extremity Sockets
The below the knees socket has varying degrees of flexibility depending on each individuals needs. To add stability, it fits into a lightweight composite frame. Some sockets feature areas on the frame with more rigid composites while others feature softer more lightweight areas. All are designed and built to be the most comfortable, best fitting socket available anywhere. Some prostheses are fit with a pin locking system and others suspension sleeves or liners. However your prosthesis is fabricated, you can be assured it will be the best fitting and most advanced available.
The above the knee socket is what we have built our reputation on and also has varying degrees of flexibility depending on each individuals needs. To add stability, it fits into a lightweight composite or carbon fiber frame. Some sockets feature areas on the frame with more rigid composites while others feature softer more lightweight cut-out sections to relieve pressure areas. All are designed and built to be the most comfortable, best fitting socket available anywhere. Some prostheses are skin-fit suction, or some with self locking suction sleeves or liners. However your prosthesis is fabricated, you can be assured it will be the best fitting and most advanced available.
Partial Foot prostheses have also advanced in times of design in materials. Today’s designs are fabricated from silicone which simulates human tissue much more accurately the plastics or rubberized epoxy. The form and function of a partial foot prosthesis has advanced dramatically in the last few years.
