UNITY SLEEVELESS ACTIVE VACUUM LEG PROSTHESIS
Unity™ Unity ™ Vacuum System provides advanced vacuum suspension, an unprecedented improvement that allows users to easily accept the product without using a knee brace. Moreover, the vacuum pump works independently of the Flex-Foot® foot module, allowing the foot to move optimally for maximum efficiency. Since knee braces are not used, there is no limitation in the range of motion of the knee joint and the vacuum system can be released quickly and easily with a single button. Unity helps to balance the volume while providing a highly effective and knee-free vacuum suspension by applying the vacuum to the area needed – the distal circumference of the limb.
This advanced distal vacuum system minimizes the risks of proximal vacuum leakage and puncture, the unresolved problem of traditional above knee vacuum methods. SEAL-IN® ADVANTAGE: The Unity vacuum system is based on the proven technology of icecross Seal’s V silicone liner. The soft distal tip for firm grip and comfort is located under an airtight seal. This gasket distributes the pressure evenly, ensuring full compliance with the stump and preventing unpleasant pressure rises. Thanks to the patented wave design on the gasket, the knee joint can move freely. And Össur’s special silicone blends offer superior comfort and protection for your sensitive skin.
There is no need to use a knee sleeve
- 15-22 mmHg for better mobility and ease of use
- Effective vacuum volume balancing
- Simple design
- Quick and easy fix/release vacuum
- The whole system weighs only 130 g
PROPRIO SMART PROSTHESIS FOOT WITH UNITY KNEE ACTIVE VACUUM LEG PROSTHESIS
Because the world is not flat.
PROPRIO PROSTHESIS FOOT design, which offers unique physiological advantages, significantly reduces most of the compensatory movements that amputated people often have to do. The design of the foot is based on proven Flex-Foot® technology, which is hardened and layered with processes similar to those used in the aerospace industry, containing lightweight but very durable carbon fiber. Motion analysis for PROPRIO FOOT is carried out on Dynastream’s patented technology platform, which is the leading experts in the research and development of proprioceptive, “smart” devices using inertial and wireless technology.

After switching to the Unity system, I started to use the prosthesis for a longer period, I can now travel with the prosthesis all day. My flexibility increased as the need to use knee sleeves disappeared. In this way, I started getting on and off the car more easily and now I can run behind my daughter in the park. The Unity system has now become part of me. ”
UNITY SLEEVELESS ACTIVE VACUUM LEG PROSTHESES
The Unity system has a three-function valve that allows the vacuum to be carried out easily, quickly, and automatically with a few small steps. Another feature of equal importance to the user is the release function, the vacuum is released instantly when you press the button.
The development of Unity
“We always hear about this from customers who want patients to have the safety and freedom of the vacuum suspension but do not want to be exposed to knee sleeves. They demanded a system that could cope with volume fluctuations and was compatible with FlexFoot® technology. “That’s why we’ve begun to explore how we can further develop Iceross Seal-In® V, an already highly effective suspension liner. The integrated seal ensures a natural limit for the distal vacuum, and this vacuum system is located in the area where soft tissues are most unstable. “We didn’t want to compromise the function of our Flex-Foot shock units, so we developed a pump that would run independently, requiring minimal load for a powerful vacuum process. With Unity, the pump is operated using energy supplied from the heel of the foot. “The weight of the entire system is only 130g. When the sockets fit better and the Flex-Foot dynamics come together, a very light and fast response product has emerged, this product has been developed with user tests and feedback. ”
DOES IT HAVE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
• Iceross Seal-in® V liner cannot be used when the stump is too short
• Tapered limbs that have difficulty in providing an effective connection with Seal-in V in particular.
• When large volume changes are expected in a short time
