How do Below -Knee prosthetic legs work? Also known as BK or transtibial. A below-knee prosthetic leg consists of the following: Custom made sockets, liner, pylon and foot. Every component of transtibial prostheses is designed to work together to ensure comfort and optimal function.

Mechanical prosthetic arms along with myoelectric allow the patient to regain function after limb loss. Mor myoelectric/bionic prosthetic arms have moving parts that work via sensor and electrodes.
At NOP, we work with children of all ages who were born with a missing or partial limb, or who lost a limb due to injuries or illness. Our team strives to not only provide each child with a custom prosthesis to improve mobility but also takes special care that the process results in greater confidence and a healthy self-image.
From the first consultation through prosthetics fittings and follow-ups, we work to create a caring and comfortable environment for you and your child. Since children are constantly growing, discovering new activities, or looking for greater independence, we offer ongoing services to modify, upgrade, repair, or replace their prosthetics.
We design, fabricate and fit a variety of prosthetic devices for children, adolescents, and young adults, including:
We don’t just send our young patients on their way. We help children and their parents learn, adapt, and become confident with their new prosthetic.
Many of our patients are active people with a healthy lifestyle. Some are even world-class athletes. Either way, NOP has a long history of offering the best custom sports prosthetics available today. Whether you’re into running, cycling, swimming, skiing, rowing, golfing, surfing, kickboxing, soccer, or virtually any other sport, we’ve got you covered.
