After a transtibial amputation, the goal is to find a prosthesis solution that provides you with the highest level of safety and independence – along with a good fit.
One option is what is known as a shuttle lock fitting, which works in a similar way to a lock. A pin screwed into the lower end of the liner is inserted into the socket's counter piece, known as the shuttle lock, while putting on the prosthesis. The pin engages in the shuttle lock, connecting the residual limb to the prosthesis. The system is easy to unlock using a simple trigger mechanism.
Two special features of the MagnoFlex lock make putting on the prosthesis much easier: a magnet in the lock housing gently pulls the pin towards the opening as it is inserted. Because the pin is also flexible, it follows this gentle pull easily, sliding along the housing of the shuttle lock before engaging in the proper position.
The MagnoFlex lock works especially well with the Skeo liners, which include a range of versions to cover a wide variety of user requirements.
