Modular Socket Technology
Micheal Nel is one of only a few in South Africa who specializes in Modular Socket Technology with more than 5 years’ experience.
Micheal Nel Prosthetics offer Revolimb who has just introduced Revofit to prosthetics wearers. Revofit is a micro-adjustable prosthetic limb that allows you to instantly control the fit of your socket without ever having to remove it. You can easily customise the fit, feel and performance of your prosthesis by fine-tuning socket compression around your limb.
Microprocessor controlled prosthetics represents a giant leap forward in the prosthetic field because these components 'think' like biological systems do. These devices are programmed in a manner to learn to match the necessary movements made by the wearer. At our practice we strive to stay abreast with constant changing technology and are certified to fit these microprocessor components to achieve a better outcome for our patients.
