Ottobock Announces Support of RevoFit™ Adjustable Prosthetic Sockets
AUSTIN, Texas (December 8) – Ottobock and Click Medical are teaming up to make innovative, adjustable sockets more easily available – now through Ottobock’s Central Fabrication Service in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ottobock Central Fabrication now offers RevoFit micro-adjustable sockets. The RevoFit adjustable socket solution, designed and patented by Click Medical, allows prosthetic users to micro-adjust socket fit throughout the day to accommodate fluctuations in limb shape.
“RevoFit adjustable sockets are an excellent complement to our portfolio of Central Fabrication services,” said Pete Nohre, Director of Business Development for Ottobock North America. “For years, we have excelled in unique or difficult fittings to help our customers expand their work bench and offer more to patients. The RevoFit adjustable socket is another example of how Ottobock helps customers offer unique fitting solutions to their patients.”
Click Medical introduced the RevoFit adjustable socket in 2015 as a unique solution that allows patients to quickly adjust socket fit rather than rely on adding socks to their socket. The RevoFit adjustable socket is designed to fine-tune compression within the socket by using custom, movable panels targeted to specific areas of the limb.
RevoFit Adjustable Socket Benefits
- Patient Empowerment: Patients can control the fit of their socket throughout the day as their limb changes thus giving them more control over fit and comfort.
- Adjust Prosthetic Fit On Demand: The RevoFit adjustable socket technology allows the patient to micro-adjust the volume of the socket with just one hand.
- Reduce Patient Time: By giving patients a socket where they can control fit based on daily volume changes the amount of post-delivery adjustments can be dramatically reduced.
- Rapid Donning & Doffing: With the RevoFit system installed, donning and doffing becomes easy. Simply pull the dial with one hand to release.
“We are excited to have Ottobock’s skilled and experienced fabrication team trained and ready to support the fabrication of the growing number of RevoFit micro-adjustable sockets,” said Jimmy Capra, CEO, Click Medical.
