The Confidence Socket System
A revolution in interim socket technology
Fits directly on the residual limb, like a second skin, meaning everything can be done in just one appointment. If the patient's leg changes, so does the socket. It's engineered with an innovative thermoplastic material that enables it to be remolded for the ultimate comfort and fit at all times.
Advantages of the Amparo® System
REMOLDABLE: Volume Accomodation
The Confidence Socket System can be completely remolded multiple times due to its innovative low-temperature thermoplastic blend. This offers total comfort to recent amputees during their recovery phase, as the residual limb dramatically changes its volume and shape. After reheating the socket, technicians can easily provide a perfect socket fit.
DIRECT FIT: molded directly onto leg
Contrary to traditional methods, the Confidence Socket is molded directly onto the residual limb like a second skin. This method simplifies the traditional fabrication process to a few steps and minimizes the margin for error when making the socket - allowing for a perfect fit, every time. Now patients can start their rehabilitation without excessive back and fourth with their technician.
MOBILE: Your Workshop in a Bag
The Confidence Socket can be fitted anywhere outside of an orthopedic workshop, either in the hospital or at the patients home. There is no heavy machinery required. In fact, all tools fit in a sports bag. It's excellent for technicians who want to offer mobile services, or have to travel long distances to provide a prosthesis. Therefore, ideal for patients who have a hard time commuting or need to receive home care.
Increasing access to prosthetic care, worldwide.
It is Amparo's vision to offer simple, cost-efficient and high-quality products to restore mobility. Our focus revolves around providing comfort as well as preventing long-term health problems.
This vision inspired the development of our technology, enabling technicians to provide better prothetic care to their clients. One of Amparo's greatest goals is to provide the 90% of amputees, currently without access to prosthetic care, with cost-efficient products that work even in inaccessible areas.
This is why Amparo GmbH is doing research to substantially improve prosthetic sockets and DirectFit sockets, and enhance tools to support orthopaedic technicians.
