Unsure about lower limb prosthetics?

We’ve answered common questions in our guide to what to expect on your prosthetic journey. 

We have extensive experience at satisfying the needs of lower limb amputees, with access to a full specialist multidisciplinary team who are all very experienced in amputee care. The team consists of a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, Prosthetists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists dependant upon the requirements of the client.

The basis of a successful result is a comfortable socket. We have the skills and take the time to ensure comfort. Having determined that the socket is comfortable we can concentrate on the functionality. For amputees that need prosthetic knees we are experienced in all of the leading high functioning prosthetic knees. This includes the C-leg (Including the latest C-leg 4), Genium, Rheo Knee and Sensor Knee as well as other knees from all of the leading suppliers.

We use the full range of prosthetic feet including carbon fibre feet (blade runner type) shock absorbing feet, energy storing feet, whichever is most suitable for your needs. Finally if the appearance is of high importance we are leading experts in high definition silicone prosthetics.

The best way to find out what we can do is to contact us for an appointment. After an amputation you find yourself in a new situation. How your life will look in the future largely depends on you. As a rule, the rehabilitation process itself takes up to half a year.

Sport Prosthesis

Prosthetics for Amputee Sport

At Ledbrook Clinic we are able to provide you with specialised sports prosthesis for use in recreational as well as competitive sporting activities. We use not only the most advanced carbon fibre components but also utilise the Gait Lab to finely tune alignment and improve your training techniques by using the motion technology often incorporated in Olympic standard coaching regimes. We can also refer you to an experienced amputee sports physiotherapist if necessary.

Gordon Wilson has wide experience of producing running, swimming and golfing limbs and pioneered the design of an ice-skating below knee limb, using standard modular components, for a professional ice dance instructor in 1993. See archive article of Gordon (Lead Prosthetist) and Rob (Prosthetic Technician) with patient.

Waterproof Prosthetic Leg

Waterproof Prosthetic Legs

Made to your requirements

If you have an existing socket you are comfortable with, at Ledbrook Clinic we have the facilities to duplicate the design and provide you with a totally waterproof limb. Alternatively we can redesign a socket for you and incorporate it into a new waterproof limb. We can produce waterproof limbs with both traditional suspension systems or the more modern alternative types, such as silicone liner with pin and lock. However in most cases we recommend that when choosing a waterproof limb you remain with the type of suspension system you are accustomed to.
