body powered options for elbow disarticulation

DeAnna Chapman

I am searching for all body powered prosthetic options for a patient with an elbow disarticulation amputation. I am considering Hosmer’s outside locking hinges and would like to know if there is a prefabricated forearm that can be utilized with this type of joint. Cosmesis is not of concern, so if there are other elbow joints and/or forearm combinations that have been successfully utilized by your patient with an elbow disarticulation, I would appreciate that feedback as well.
