Vip- High Vacuum, Convex
The ALPS TM VIP is an elevated vacuum system, fabricated into the distal end of a socket similar to a distal end pad. The VIP is engineered out of a medical grade silicone polymer and two valves to control the airflow. Once the amputee dons the prosthesis and places a seal sleeve over the socket, the pump is activated from the user’s weight during heel strike, and draws elevated vacuum after toe off during swing phase. The VIP is available with 2 different vacuum levels within the socket, depending upon the patient’s activity level and skin conditions.
