Shot in the Dark

Kramarczyk, Charles

O and P Peeps,

I have a new patient to me, who comes to me from another facility. He is an experience amputee of many years, and has a couple different BK prosthesis that he wears throughout the week . His favorite prosthesis is a Vacuum socket with a pathfinder foot, but instead of the pathfinder piston, he has a TEC Harmony piston/vacuum unit from Tec Industries. The piston no longer holds air pressure or vacuum, and I don’t think it could be repaired. I know Otto Bock bought Tec Industries, and the good people at Otto Bock, haven’t seen this piston in years.

I am looking to see If anyone has one of these piston’s lying around their lab collecting dust, that would be willing to part with it.

The patient loves that prosthesis, and foot combination, and I am hoping to keep it together for him.


Chuck Kramarczyk, CP
