We can accept full prosthetic limbs (such as condemned limbs or when a patient limb is no longer required), broken down into the individual components (such as when a foot or knee is removed when components are upgraded). Some wear and tear to the components is expected but please do not send faulty or broken components.Below is a list of components that are being requested across our Mobility Network in sub-Saharan Africa.
Currently, we can not accept any orthotic devices or other mobility aids. If you are unsure, send us an email at email@example.com
KneesAll knees should include a pyramid, socket adapter tube clamp adapter on both ends. We can not accept microprocessor knees
Socket AdaptersFor socket adaptors that cannot be removed please cut down the socket leaving 10-15cm of the distal end of the socket if it is safe to do so. This video demonstrates how to remove moulded socket adapters
GubbinsIt’s hard to list everything that we’ll accept so here is a few smaller components to provide an example of what we accept.
Other gubbins worth mentioning
- Four hole socket adapters (male/female)
- Rotation adaptors
- Long stump adaptors
- Knee actuators
- Screw in adaptors (male/female)
- Torsion adaptors
- Double adaptors
