Prosthetists

  • Access to precise, quantitative data

  • Pinpoint problems faster

  • No need to rely on inaccurate patient feedback

  • Access to patient history

  • Access to pressure data contextualized by gait analysis

Patients

  • A more accurate fitting process means less pain

  • Less time to get the socket adjusted

  • Quicker response from the healthcare providers

  • More transparent and engaging process

  • Better understanding of clinical decisions

Prosthetic Centers 

  • Each patient requires less time from the prosthetists

  • Time and resources to treat more patients

  • Access to quantitative data for insurance purposes

  • Easier to train younger prosthetists, since they can now see the experience of their mentors translated into objective data and concepts

  • Access to medical history

  • Patient sockets can be stored digitally

Healthcare Providers

  • Ability to monitor patients more closely

  • A more efficient and cost-effective workflow 

 

Traditional workflow: THE “TRIAL AND ERROR” CYCLE

Most importantly — and regardless of the type of prosthetic used— all amputees need to be properly fitted for their unique socket. Currently prosthetists operate a time-consuming trial-and-error methodology, relying on a patient to flag any discomfort or areas of poor fit with the socket until the final socket is achieved. This is especially time-consuming when you consider that each amputee needs a replacement prosthesis on average every two years.

The trial-and-error cycle can take multiple fitting sessions, sometimes over a number of months, before achieving a functional and painless final socket. This can cause significant discomfort, a loss of mobility, inconvenience, and a number of other physical and psychological effects.

Furthermore, insurance companies and National Healthcare Systems do not pay for prosthetists’ services, only for their products. This means prosthetic centres get a fixed amount of money per patient, regardless of how many interventions are required for the fitting. Their profit is eaten away each time the patient has to come back for further fitting interventions.

INSIGHT workflow: THE BENEFITS OF BIODATA

In the current process, prosthetists depend heavily on the accuracy of a patient’s feedback. With INSIGHT, prosthetists are presented with high quality biodata gathered by the sensors to complement the patient’s feedback and clearly understand what’s happening inside the socket. 

This can even help in detecting problematic areas with the fit before a patient notices the issue, which could traditionally take some days of prosthetic usage to become uncomfortable. With INSIGHT, prosthetists can anticipate and finalise changes to the socket from the first visit.

 

What you need to know

wedontprintsockets.png

We do not print sockets...

INSIGHT was designed to capture biodata reflecting the relationship between the patient’s stump and the socket. The socket is prepared by the prosthetist, designed to the patient’s stump, and the scanner creates a 3D model of the socket. The sensors are attached to the socket and wearable device which together measure the pressure in relation to the fit of the socket both when the patient is static and mobile.

We do not replace prosthetists... 

We give prosthetists the tools to measure, analyse and iterate their work, in order to provide more efficient and personalised care to their patients. This system empowers them to make more accurate decisions faster, and provides them with a deeper knowledge of their practice.

INSIGHT was designed by understanding the needs and workflows of prosthetists and should fit in with and complement the traditional workflow instead of being a hassle or an “extra-step”.
