ATLAS / Treatment chair for Otto Bock

ATLAS
ATLAS

Atlas – treatment chair for the casting and fitting of prostheses and ortheses on upper- and lower leg amputated patients.Key features of the chair are the two different treatment positions. The one for the under leg casting is the higher seated position for an ergonomic casting procedure, both for the patient and for the orthopaedic technician. The one for the upper leg-casting is the position with the driven back seating surface. This enables the leg amputated patient a secure and comfortable treatment without the deformation of the stump.
