Xtremity Introduces All-New Proprietary Prosthetic Flexible Inner Socket: The XtremityTT™ FLEX

Xtremity, a premium medical device maker known for developing cutting-edge prosthetic thermoformable socket technology and the creator of the XtremityTT™ Socket System, today introduced its new and uniquely crafted flexible inner socket (FIS) product offering, the XtremityTT™ FLEX. Designed for patients with transtibial limb loss, the XtremityTT FLEX provides a more adaptive socket fit and increases patient comfort. It is compatible with the XtremityTT Socket System and other traditional laminated prosthetic socket devices.

“Since day one, Xtremity’s mission has been to provide life-changing prosthetic care by creating innovative thermoformable socket technology for transtibial limb loss patients and the clinicians that care for them,” said Maynard Carkhuff, president and chief executive officer at Xtremity. “The XtremityTT FLEX is no exception and is differentiated by its newly developed proprietary polymer—which was precision-engineered by our team to improve formability, reduce friction, minimize shrinkage and increase socket system durability. It also delivers consistency across heating, stretching and shaping during fabrication—making it an incredibly smooth process for prosthetists. It’s a truly winning product for all participants in the value chain.”

The device maker’s initial product offering, the XtremityTT Socket System, was introduced last summer as the first-ever heat-adjustable definitive transtibial prosthesis. Xtremity’s unique socket technology allows for rapid fabrication in just one-hour, seamless fittings and easy modifications that reduces the need for patients to get an entirely new socket anytime their limb goes through significant volume and shape changes.
