To support the patient’s continuous, comfortable, and long-term use of their prosthesis, the prosthetist can use a heat gun to make spot adjustments at any time throughout the life of the prosthesis.
Environmental / Health Benefits
Fabrication and assembly of the XtremityTT® socket is accomplished in about one hour, in a small workspace, without a large oven or vented room for grinding and finishing the socket.
No layup. No lamination. No hazardous raw materials or irritating carbon dust. XtremityTT® is a healthier choice for clinic employees and more sustainable for our environment.
Quality Manufacturing in the USA
The XtremityTT® is the first socket created by injecting a proprietary carbon reinforced polymer (a material no prosthetist has ever experienced) into machined tools to create a precise “Preform” available in four sizes and two profiles (Standard or Conical). The Preform can be heated in a compact Benchtop Heating Unit and custom vacuum-formed to a model of the residual limb.
All components are injection molded, CNC milled from aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel, or 3D printed in Colorado (100% made in the USA) by ISO suppliers.
The Most Tested Socket Ever
While there are no existing standards or requirements for socket testing, Xtremity’s product development and engineering team completed the most testing ever on transtibial socket technology. Xtremity invested millions of dollars creating precise methods and devices to conduct a vast range of tests to validate the structural durability, performance, safety and benefits of the XtremityTT® Socket System.
The XtremityTT® Socket System was load tested (3 million cycles, heel and toe) adhering to ISO standards for prosthetic devices. A 38-patient controlled study involving six clinics, as well as a battery of tests for ultimate strength, torsion, pressure mapping and material creep, were completed prior to the product’s release. Patient “testers” included extreme athletes who logged more than 30 million steps.
