Dorset Orthopaedic is delighted to introduce the 3S80 Sports prosthesis. The 3S80 running blade has been specifically developed for recreational athletes by Ottobock, the official Prosthetic, Orthotic and Wheelchair Technical Service Provider for the 2012 Paralympic Games.
The 3S80 Sports prosthesis has a sport knee joint and newly developed sport foot adapter – designed to appeal to amateur athletes looking to enjoy active lifestyles. Using the latest technology in rotation hydraulics, the prosthesis provides momentum and stability, allowing above-knee amputees to enjoy their running across a wide range of terrains – from the treadmill to the fells.
Watch the video demonstration:
The new sport prosthesis is compact, light and sturdy and is suitable for a body weight of up to 100kg. Optimised for running sports, it comprises the new 3S80 Sport knee joint, 1E90 Sprinter Carbon Foot and the newly developed 4R204 Sport Foot Adapter.
3S80 Sports Knee Joint
The 3S80 knee joint is designed to withstand the high pressure imposed whilst running. Rotation hydraulics have been optimised for running sports; the joint dampens the extension and flexion movements in the swing phase in such a way that a dynamic movement pattern is enabled even at higher stride rates while running. The manually operated lock on the new knee joint facilitates a secure stance that can be of use during warm-ups and stretching.
1E90 Sprinter Carbon Foot
The durable 1E90 Sprinter carbon spring foot offers a particularly high energy return, making it ideal for running. Various stiffness versions of the spring are available to suit every body weight and running experience. Two soles are available; the universal sole with an all-terrain tread is suitable for running on a variety of surfaces such as forest trails, while the spike sole can be used for fast sprints, especially on an all-weather running track.
4R204 Sport Foot Adapter
The newly developed sport foot adapter joins the knee joint to the foot. A fitting guide is included with delivery of the sport prosthesis, allowing the prosthetist to accurately align and adjust the sport prosthesis for the individual. Running exercises and a user step-by-step guide are also provided for prosthetists.
