Accessible from our UK clinics in Ringwood and Burton or one of our worldwide partners, Dorset Orthopaedic partial feet are available for all levels of partial foot amputation. There are two main types of partial foot: a slipper style, which has trim lines just below the ankles and is recommended for mid metatarsal levels of amputation and further distal (mid foot to toe amputations). The second is a SAFoot ™ , which comes higher up the leg like a boot, recommended for mid metatarsal levels of amputation and further proximal (mid foot to ankle (symes) amputations).
Dorset Orthopaedic partial feet can provide functional and cosmetic solutions within one device, or indeed just be functional. Every type of partial foot can encompass a combination of materials with specific properties, to aid your comfort and mobility. Our specialist team will utilise specific casting procedures and the properties of a selection of materials to develop your prosthesis. Soft silicone gel pads can be used to relieve pressure in sensitive areas, medical grade silicones protect vulnerable skin and carbon fibre can be included for function.
Designed to suit a range of needs and budgets
We have five main types of partial foot available from three colour ranges. These products have varying features and levels of cosmetic detail to cater for an array of requirements and budgets.
Our Single Colour range offers three custom made functional solutions, with varying levels of toe detail. Our entry level product is a Single Colour Toe Filler Foot which has no toe detail. The second is a 1D10 Foot which offers a standard foot shape with basic toe detail and nail shapes. Finally in the single colour range we have the Custom Toe Foot. This partial foot is sculpted from one skin tone to mirror the volume, skin and nail characteristics of your sound side, or a foot of your choice.
There are two types of high definition partial foot, Tri Colour and Multi Colour. The Multi Colour Partial Foot is our highest definition product. Every detail imaginable that forms an integral part of your foot such as hair, freckles, moles, veins and even tattoos can be incorporated. The Tri Colour Partial Foot is our middle range product. This product is customised to mirror the volume and skin characteristics of your sound side, made from three skin tones, two nail colours and hair if required. To facilitate the creation of such functional and lifelike products, a casting and silicone appointment is made for you. During your casting appointment a clinician will cast your residual limb and discuss your prescription requirements. They will cast your residual foot in the optimum position to maximise comfort and functionality. Silicone appointments are conducted by specialist technicians, whom you can discuss your cosmetic needs and expectations with. During this appointment the technician compiles all the information they require in order to manufacture your bespoke order. Measurements and photos are taken, custom colours are mixed and a defined plaster cast of your sound side is made.
