The Latest Technology
and Materials to Help Amputees
iLimb and iLimb Digits
For upper limb amputees looking for more hand function, iLimb is a state-of-the-art solution. Five individually-powered digits allow a myriad of functions in this light-weight replacement hand.
The Symbionic Leg is a completely bionic leg for above knee amputees which combines a microprocessor knee and foot seamlessly. This leg allows amputees to explore all terrains safely without the user needing to compensate in any way.
Subatmospheric Socket Technology
Brimless transfemoral sockets are more comfortable, feel more secure and are easier to manage, even in high activity. Flexible socket materials are used in a design that doesn’t push on the pelvis. Our vacuum suspension and new liner materials also improve range of motion and volume control.

Breakthrough technology and functionality come together in the latest microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee. As an above-knee amputee, the Genium knee is all you could ask for in a prosthetic device. Dynamic stability, water resistant, more compact size, a gyroscope sensor and 5-day battery life are some of the features that make the Genium stand out.
The BiOM technology platform is the first true personal bionics solution. By mimicking muscles and tendons, the BiOM Systems enable smooth, natural human movement. The artificial muscle power allows people to walk with the same gait and the same effort as non-amputees. The BiOM Ankle System instantly improves function, empowering people to do the things they want at their chosen speed with (1) less energy requirements, (2) decreased joint degeneration and (3) fewer aches and pains.
The first and only motor-powered prosthetic knee, the POWER KNEE works as an integrated extension of the user, designed to restore the power of lost muscles and symmetry of movement that is vital for those with limb loss. POWER KNEE gives users the ability to cover greater distances than they could previously.
Confidently negotiating obstacles and inclines has never been easier. With the POWER KNEE ascending stairs foot-over-foot is now possible.
Our Computer Aided Design (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) system is used to create prosthetic limbs with accuracy and efficiency. At Scheck & Siress, our prosthetists may use CAD to scan a patient’s residual limb and then send that information to our central fabrication partner, Advanced Orthotic & Prosthetic Systems who will manufacture the limb using CAM and their electronic carver.
