The Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Center in Moscow has been engaged in lower limb prosthetics for the past ten years. The RTC manufactures a wide range of modern modular prostheses using high-tech modules of the Icelandic company Ossur and the German Otto Bock. In addition, the specialists of the center for the manufacture of prostheses in the budget package use well-proven modules of the Russian enterprise Metiz. These manufacturers are constantly improving their technologies, both in terms of functionality, durability and practicality of artificial modules, and in terms of their design.
In an effort to maximize the quality of life of people, for whatever reasons, forced to use prosthetic and orthopedic products, manufacturers from year to year improve the materials and expand the range of component parts and structural elements. Due to this, qualified prosthetists of our center in a fairly short time can assemble a convenient module taking into account all the individual characteristics of the patient. The latter include the type and level of amputation, medical indications, the state of the stump, the patient’s age, the degree of his activity, the nature of the classes, personal wishes and financial capabilities.
A variety of designs allows you to make the perfect prosthesis for everyday life, work or for active sports. Each patient is assigned a qualified, experienced prosthetist, who works with him at all stages of prosthetics: from creating an impression and psychological preparation to complete rehabilitation.
ROC specialists can manufacture the most advanced bionic prostheses, equipped with a microprocessor, trained as they are used and provide the most natural gait. In such prostheses the most modern modules are used.
The self-learning knee module is so smart that it learns continuously and independently adapts to the individual and its environment. RHEO KNEE® uses advanced sensor technologies (load sensors) to take measurements at a frequency of 1000 times per second. RHEO KNEE® studies your walking style, recognizes and responds immediately to the slightest change in speed, load and terrain.
The first in the world of the foot, which uses artificial intelligence – provides the patient with the amputation of the lower leg functional benefits unparalleled. Automatic ankle flexion means that the functionality is as close to the functionality of a healthy human foot as possible today. This device thinks for itself, reacting to changes in terrain and approaching steps and descents. As a result, a more balanced and symmetrical gait, preserving the health of the whole body.
Symbionic Leg is the first fully bionic foot. Using the combined nutrition and control of the foot and adaptive knee from a single microprocessor, Symbionic Leg provides unsurpassed benefits for patients with amputation above the knee. Active lifting of the foot while walking minimizes the risk of falling. The system of automatic adaptation to the terrain adjusts the angle of inclination of the foot, depending on the steepness of the slope, creating better contact with the ground and optimal movement of the knee module on ascents and descents. By adjusting the heel height, the user can use shoes with different heel height or walk barefoot, without sacrificing gait.
The prosthesis – an individual product, the selection of equipment and the manufacture of the prosthesis takes place individually for each patient.
The cost of a full course of prosthetics
The cost of prostheses in the budget version using mechanical modules from 100,000 rubles. up to 200,000 rubles.
The cost of prostheses for patients with a high degree of activity, with the possibility of sports, using hydraulic or pneumatic knee modules and foot modules with a high level of energy return, made of carbon fiber, from 200,000 rubles. up to 750,000 rubles.
The cost of bionic prostheses from 1,000,000 rubles. up to 3,000,000 rubles.
Recommendations for preparation for prosthetics
It is very important in the first days after amputation to tune in to an active lifestyle. First of all it concerns persons of working age.
On the second or third day after the operation, it is advisable to start getting up and sitting down. First with help and with walkers and crutches with emphasis on the forearm. Axillary crutches are not recommended because they cause chronic trauma to the nerves and blood vessels.
During the rehabilitation period, the patient must follow the guidelines for the care of postoperative suture, stump formation, maintaining joint mobility and strengthening the remaining muscles.
Surgery for postoperative sutures is provided by medical personnel. The patient must carefully follow the instructions of the attending physician, especially for patients with vascular disease and diabetes.
After amputation, the skin on the stump has an increased sensitivity. You can reduce the sensitivity with the help of massage. You can massage the stump with a soft brush, a massage ball and rub the stump with a hard towel or towel made of terry cloth. Massage should be carried out from the distal (lower) end of the stump to its base. Intense training of the distal end of the stump on the support is not recommended – the patient may be harmed.
In addition, to take care of the cult, a daily douche is recommended, washed with baby soap, and after the formation of the scar, daily smearing with odorless cream is necessary.
To prepare the stump for prosthetics, it is necessary, as soon as the attending physician permits, to begin bandaging the stump with an elastic bandage from the distal end in a spiral to the base of the stump. Apply a bandage in the morning and take off in the evening before bedtime. If there are painful sensations, the bandage should be immediately removed and reapplied. The pressure should be maximum (but without pain) in the distal part and decrease to the base of the stump.
To prevent joint contracture (restriction of passive movements in the joint, due to cicatricial deformity of the skin, muscles and tendons), it is necessary to perform exercises according to the recommendation of the attending physician and exercise therapy doctor. And for the effective use of the prosthesis, it is necessary to develop the abdominals, muscles of the back, arms, and healthy and injured legs.
The Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Center is located in the town of Mytishchi, Moscow Region, just 5 km from the Moscow Ring Road on the Yaroslavl Highway. It is convenient to get here and independently and public transport.

C-leg intellectual prosthesis
The microprocessor-controlled prosthesis of the lower limb C-Leg uses a pneumatic actuator in order for its owner to experience sensations similar to those that occur when walking on both legs. The pressure sensor (strain gauge) measures the load on the prosthesis fifty-times in one second, and due to this, the process of bending the artificial knee and the ankle is carried out properly. According to users, it is much easier to walk with C-Leg than to travel on ordinary “non-intellectual” prostheses: you can go down the stairs without any problems, whereas earlier you had to avoid it and
Biocibernetic Neural Interfaces – BrainGate2
Thanks to this device, for the first time in the history of mankind, a completely paralyzed person was able to independently drink coffee from a bottle, using the electrical activity of his brain and controlling the power of his thoughts with a robotic manipulator that looks like a hand. For this, a 58-year-old patient named Kate was implanted a special neurochip in the motor section of the cerebral cortex, consisting of ninety-six gold contacts and allowing the neuron signals to be converted into commands for an artificial hand.
