Toe prosthesis/Foot prosthesis AHP Europe
The lower limb prosthesis (foot or toe prosthesis) uses the same techniques as the upper limb prosthesis. These These have been developed by the AHP® group, for your comfort, guaranteeing you a realistic, aesthetic result while limiting your movements as much as possible.
Today, the use of these techniques allows us to obtain a prosthesis that is aesthetic enough to make it possible to wear shoes suitable for daily outings (open shoes, heels, etc.).
Aesthetic ... but also functional!
different types of amputations
There are different forms of foot amputations, each allowing its specific prosthetic solution:
Toe amputation: This operation aims to remove part of the toe, one or more toes. The device will consist of reducing an already existing deformation following the amputation or preventing a future postural deformation caused by the loss of the missing toe(s). In addition to the functional side, the psychological aspect of the loss of a limb can also be combated by wearing a toe prosthesis.
Transmetatarsal amputation: This operation aims to remove part of the forefoot by cutting from the middle of the metatarsals.
Chopart's amputation: This surgical procedure involves the removal of the front part of the talus and the calcaneus, the bones that make up the mid-tarsal joint.
Lisfranc amputation: This more radical procedure involves the complete removal of the toes as well as the metatarsal bones. It is rarely practiced and reserved for serious situations where the whole of the foot is seriously affected, jeopardizing the function and viability of the limb.
Transmetatarsal, Chopart and Lisfranc amputations also intervene functionally by altering:
- the initial postural scheme (there is a deformation of the foot in varus/equine varus)
- the gait pattern (the unfolding of the step, but also the stability in the oscillating phase)
- comfort in the static position
In addition to the functional side, as with the removal of toes, the psychological aspect of the loss of a limb can also be resorbed by wearing a prosthesis.
Our manufacturing process
Optional, free, it allows you to get answers to your questions as well as learn about your custom-made device. It is not subject to any future commitment.
The first consultation starts the process of designing the prosthesis. Impressions and measurements will be taken. This stage lasts on average half a day.
Accompanied by one of our colorist experts, the coloring and fitting of your prosthesis will be made with you and is made to measure. This stage last on average 1/2 day.
Our experts are fine-tuning the last details in our laboratory without your presence. You can pick up your prosthesis in person or we will ship it directly to your home.
Foot and toe prosthesis
We understand that each patient has different mobility or aesthetic needs. This is why we offer a range of lower limb prostheses suitable for different activity levels. Whether you are an athlete, an active worker, or need a prosthesis for occasional use, we will offer a suitable solution that meets your expectations.
The AHP® prosthesis can be worn comfortably, regardless of body type, size or weight. It significantly improves mobility and comfort when standing or walking. In fact, most patients confirm an increase in their walking distance when they wear it.
