Namaste Prosthetic Liner
Prosthetic liners provide a cushioning layer between the residual limb and the prosthetic socket which reduces movement within the socket. An effective liner is critical to increase stability, comfort and safety. For an active amputee a quality liner makes standing for long periods, being productive at work and playing an achievable, life-changing goal.
A standard component available to amputees in wealthy countries for more than 30 years -- prosthetic liners are still not readily available in many low-resource settings. As a result, financially disadvantaged amputees are limited in their ability to obtain gainful employment and enjoy an active family and social life.
The Namaste Prosthetic Liner is changing that.
Operation Namaste developed a way to make this essential component available through providers in poorer communities using CAD, and additive manufacturing to reduce the cost and enable on-site production.
Using 3D printed molds and medical grade, platinum-cured silicone,
practitioners in low-income regions can now produce Namaste Liners in their own facility eliminating shipping time and vastly reducing the cost
for amputees with limited resources.
The Namaste Liner is part of the Namaste Limb Solutions kit and is
available to Prosthetists and Clinicians around the world.
