Developed by Orthocare Innovations, the Europa™ technology involves an instrumented pyramid that fits near the base of the prosthetic socket. Prosthetics Outcome Reports using Europa™ in the VA population are designed to address important data points not attainable by other devices. Specific contract requirements met by Europa™ include:
- Stance time
- Swing time
- Stride symmetry
- Dynamic function
- Measurement of socket load during gait
Together these measures are tracked in time as a trend and stored within the Europa™ memory to meet the requirement for “Longitudinal, Historical, Objective analysis”.
