New EMS Socket System

Ottobock is the exclusive distributor of the new EMS (Environmentally Managed System) socket system developed by Carl Caspers, CPO. The EMS technology is fully compatible with the Harmony vacuum system Caspers developed and sold to Ottobock in 2003, but also offers more surface area for better pressure distribution, a higher coefficient of friction for better connection, a flexible supracondylar connection for knee stability, an air cushion to reduce distal pressures, and flexible inner socket trim lines and lower definitive socket trim lines for better range of motion and improved sleeve durability.
