An Introduction to Our Prosthetics

Introducing Biomimetic Lower Limb Prosthetics

We look to the complex biological make-up of the human ankle and foot for inspiration. The knee was the first prosthetic joint to be controlled by microprocessors and have been through many stages of development over the years.

Biomimicry Technology


Replication of natural motion is at the heart of our design philosophy. Our award-winning range of products are designed to help individuals achieve the best possible mobility, function, comfort and long-term health.

What Types of Prosthetics Legs Does Blatchford Design and Manufacture?

There are different designs of lower limb devices we make that work with different parts of the leg that have been amputated. 

If a person has had their leg removed below the knee (BKA), we design prosthetic legs that have been made specifically for that part of the body. The same goes for an above knee amputation (AKA); we design a prosthetic leg that will replace the amputated part.

Prosthesis for an above knee amputation (AKA) will include a socket for the stump (end of the lower limb) to fit in, the thigh, knee, shin, foot, ankle and foot.

Prosthesis for a below knee amputation (BKA) includes a socket for the stump (the end of the lower limb), the shin, ankle and foot.

From above knee prosthetics to biomimetic, bionic limb systems, Blatchford products are developed with the long-term health of patients.

Orthotists and prosthetists that work with our products are confident that Blatchford products are the best fitting lower limb prosthetics on the market.

Our lower limb prosthetics include:

 

The four main areas of health outcomes we strive to focus on with our prosthetic limbs are:

  • Decreasing the risk of falls
  • Reducing osteoarthritis
  • Lowering back pain
  • Reducing residual limb tissue injuries
