Patient Information Osseointegration

IMPROVED MOVING ABILITY

With a bone-anchored attachment, you can move more freely but also on a more regular basis, as you will not need to worry about chafing or discomfort.

STABLE ATTACHMENT

A bone-anchored prosthesis is attached without using a socket, which ensures stability, as well as the rapid attachment of the prosthesis without any need for additional tools.

ENHANCED COMFORT

The absence of the prosthetic socket enhances comfort and enables above-knee amputees to e.g. sit more comfortably and also giving patients the ability to cross their legs.

REDUCED PRESSURE, SORES AND PAIN

Heat, sweating and chafing are all common problems among users of socket prostheses. With the OPRA Implant System, you do not need to think about these problems.
