Avoid constant changes of complete prosthetic for various activities

With Xtend Connect, you can change quickly from an activity foot to an everyday foot and keep the same socket, so you don’t need to carry complete sets around with you. Or change quickly between high heels and everyday foot – without disturbing the important settings, of course.

Technical information I am interested

Changing feet

Because different feet have different heights, remember to fit Xtend Connect as high as possible up the tube that connects to the prosthetic foot. By doing this, you can adjust for different prosthetic foot heights by
truncating the connecting tube to the correct height. It is also easier for the prosthetic user to change the foot if there is a tube to hold onto.

Remember, too, that you need to order two lower components for the different feet.

Changing trousers

Here you can put Xtend Connect wherever you like, but the lower down the prosthetic foot the connection is, the easier it is to pull on tight trousers.

Changing the knee joint

Bear in mind that changing knee joints can be heavy work for the prosthesis user, and that both hands are often needed to perform the change.

Alignment is very important, and easiest to achieve if you use the female pyramid as a connecting component to the knee joint.

Don’t be afraid to rotate Xtend Connect so that the quick fit unit faces downwards. This does not affect the functioning of the component, and can sometimes be easier for the patient to manage.
