The Length Adjustable Tube Adapter facilitates the correct static alignment of lower limb prostheses during the trial fitting. Reproducible adjustments make it possible to optimize gait during the trial walking. The length adjustable tube adapter is mounted between the prosthetic foot and the knee joint. Tube lengths are adapted for use between the prosthetic foot and the knee joint. The total length of the tube adapter can be adjusted with a tube clamp. The outer and inner rotation of the foot is also adjustable.
Adjustable tube adpaters are to be used exclusively for the initial fitting or interim prostheses, testing purposes and trial fitting of lower limb prostheses. They are used as an adjusting element for alignment optimization and must be disassembled before completion of the definitive prosthesis.
