Ottobock releases socket technology

Austin, TX-based Ottobock in June released in the US the DVS-Dynamic Vacuum, transtibial socket technology that reduces movement between the limb and socket associated with limb volume fluctuations.

By generating a vacuum within the socket during walking, the DVS maintains a level of elevation in swing and stance phases.

Developed for easy fabrication, fittings are simplified for integration of the system into the socket for both the patient and prosthetist, according to an Ottobock release.
