At Amputee Clinic in Fort Myers, Florida, we’re committed to offering the latest advancements in prosthetic technology to improve our patients’ quality of life. One such innovation that’s making a significant impact is Osseous Stabilizing Technology, or OST. This cutting-edge approach focuses on a bone-centric design that provides unparalleled fit and control in prosthetic sockets. Let’s delve into what OST is and how it can benefit you.

Understanding Osseous Stabilizing Technology (OST)

Osseous Stabilizing Technology (OST) is a unique method of designing prosthetic sockets that emphasizes capturing and controlling the bone within the socket. Unlike traditional socket designs that primarily use soft tissue for stabilization, OST concentrates on direct engagement with the residual limb’s bony structure.

Key Features of OST

  • Bone-Centric Design: OST aims to secure the prosthetic socket around the bone, providing a more stable and precise fit.
  • Enhanced Control and Stability: By directly engaging with the bone, OST offers superior control and stability, allowing for more natural movements and improved overall function.
  • Reduced Discomfort and Pressure Points: This technology minimizes reliance on soft tissues, leading to better pressure distribution and a reduction in common discomforts such as rubbing or irritation.
  • Custom-Fit Sockets: OST involves creating a socket tailored to your unique anatomy, ensuring a more personalized and comfortable fit.
  • Improved Mobility: With the stability and control provided by OST, individuals can experience enhanced mobility and confidence in their daily activities.
