APOPPS® (& APOPPS-TF®):
Signature Series APOPPS®
Our founder Robert N. Brown, Sr. has given us the opportunity to create the Signature Series APOPPS® (Adjustable Post-Operative Preparatory Prosthetic System); designed to enhance post-operative, transtibial limb rehabilitation. Effective October 1, 2012 FLO-TECH® O&P Systems, Inc.’s new Signature Series will replace our current 7 socket sizes with just 4 sizes in both 7” and 9” lengths for left and right with: #1416, #1618, #1821, and #2124 for your transtibial patients.
We’ve combined our sizing in order to provide a larger range and sustained use of the sockets for anatomical shaping of your patients. Our new sockets now give more versatility for edema control, knee flection contracture management and aid against distal end breakdown! The new Series will save money by decreasing your inventory to only 4 sizes of each FLO-TECH-TOR™, UFOS™ and VCSPS™ (custom sockets are still available). Each socket has the same patented design and quality synonymous with the FLO-TECH® name.
SOFTIE™ and SOFTIE-TF™
A new level of postoperative amputee prosthetic rehabilitation
Fits most sizes making one left and one right SOFTIE™ and one SOFTIE-TF™ a minimal and economical stock for immediate care.
XL sizes for transtibial distal range up to 28" and transfemoral distal range up to 38" now available.
The SOFTIE™ and SOFTIE-TF™ (for Transfemoral amputees) addresses two concerns: 1) vascular surgeon(s) who fear the application of any prosthetic socket for their dysvascular patients, and 2) prosthetists who see the cost of maintaining a prefabricated postoperative socket, or system, inventory as prohibitive.
Custom Sockets - when you need them!
FLO-TECH® has made Symes, knee disarticulation, extremely long transtibial and transfemoral sockets and systems as well as jointed sockets and sockets with shuttle lock suspension.
The Symes Socket is a VCSPS™ type socket with some unique features. There is a distal strap which will provide AP, ML and circumferential control and reduction (not unlike the VCSPS™). The socket has two unique slot sets; one is located (medially and laterally) on the posterior section at the distal belly of the calf, and the other is located (medially and laterally) on the posterior section at the smallest portion of the ankle. Most patients use the Symes socket for transfers. However, a UFOS™ would be required for extended or training ambulation and can be provided upon request.
It can be difficult to get custom services quickly, but not at FLO-TECH® where most custom sockets and systems are shipped on the same day as ordered (if ordered prior to Noon EST).
