Chopart footplate for partial foot amputees
After a partial foot amputation, the affected individual wants a foot prosthesis that serves as a functionally and visually equivalent replacement for the lost limb. Requirements for a prosthetic fitting differ depending on the amputation type. The footplate forms an important basis for your foot prosthesis.
Thanks to its low structural height, the Chopart plate developed by Ottobock is suitable for partial foot amputations performed according to renowned surgeons such as Francois Chopart, James Syme and Nikolei Pirogoff (amputation retaining the heel pad).
The plate is available in all common foot sizes and approved for a body weight up to 136 kilograms. It is connected to the socket with adhesive. Your orthopaedics specialist is happy to advise you regarding a visually appealing cosmetic foot cover in a choice of two colours.
