Dycor Prosthetics - Renewing Lifestyles - Leading Technology
Every human being requiring a prosthesis should have access to maximum freedom and mobility, within their range of ability. All Dycor products are inspired and created by this basic philosophy. Since our inception in 1987, this underlying belief solidly manifests itself in the service, quality, and workmanship of our products.
Renew your clients' lifestyles with a new sense of freedom in movement. Specify Dycor products as part of your clinical protocol.
The design of our products takes into account the unique structural and functional requirements of geriatric and non-geriatric wearers because they do not routinely subject themselves to the same inadvertent and excessive stress. Dycor also limits prosthetic utilization to activities of daily living (ADL) as opposed to extra ambulatory or high impact sports which can increased repetitious structural loading.
The Dycor Experience
Our prosthetic feet are the lightest on the market. Significant weight reduction is accomplished with use of patented resin transfer infusion and lightweight polypropylene components. Dycor designers achieve the blend of comfort, balance, and design by successfully combining the technology and application of three critical components – (1) shock and shear absorption, (2) flexibility and resiliency, and (3) versatility and reliability.
Vertical shock absorption is maximized by the placement of the primary axis of the ankle on or near the bottom of the foot. This position maximizes the vertical component of plantar flexion and simultaneously minimizes the horizontal component. Foot slap is reduced with our patented Variable Radius (VR) keel technology which creates a convexed plantar surface at heel strike. All Dycor feet have patented high impact molded polypropylene keels.
Mobility, flexibility and resiliency are heightened with theDynamic response "Extra" Foot. The "E" Foot uses a patented polyporpy leme spring shell composite upper member which produces an extremely lively response for the highly active ADL person. Resiliency and mobility occur without use of rubber bumpers or snubbers - unlike any other foot that is currently available.
