High weight limit water activity prosthesis

Caroline Ward

Hi everyone

I have a bilateral trans-tibial patient who weighs 148kg and requires
water activity legs. I have been unable to find suitable components
rated to a high enough weight limit for this patient. I am aware that
Kingsley feet would be suitable but I’ve been told by Kingsley that they
do not have a foot bolt or attachment block rated high enough to enable
me to safely attach these feet to the limbs.

Does anyone have any experience of producing water activity limbs for a
patient of this weight? If so what components did you use?

Kind regards
