PITTSBURGH, Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "As a below-the-knee amputee and orthopedic surgeon I thought there could be a better way for individuals with below-knee amputations to shower and enjoy recreational activities in the water," said an inventor, from Encino, Calif., "so I invented the patent pending MODULAR SHOWER LEG."
The MODULAR SHOWER LEG provides an improved way for an individual with a below-knee amputation to stand in a shower or pool. In doing so, it offers a unique alternative to traditional prosthetic limbs. As a result, it enhances comfort and convenience, and it provides added peace of mind. The invention features an effective design that is easy to use and is ideal for individuals with below-knee amputations. Additionally, the MODULAR SHOWER LEG is producible in design and size variations.
The inventor described the invention design. "My design allows a below-knee amputee to stand in the water with this prosthesis. Cost is reasonable because it is not custom - made one at a time. No liner socks are required. A fit is adjusted by air bladder."
The original design was submitted to the Los Angeles office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
