Who is a candidate for the HiFi Interface?
We have had great success fitting both upper extremity amputee and lower extremity amputee wearers. Unquestionably, this design benefits individuals of all activity levels. However, it is extremely effective for those who are very active and demanding on their prosthesis, especially above-knee and upper limb amputees who are looking for greater stability and comfort.
Don’t just take our word for it!
Westcoast Brace & Limb (WCBL) patient, Paul, struggled through several uncomfortable and poor fitting prosthetic leg sockets after becoming in amputee in 2019. In fact, they caused instability, wounds, and discomfort for Paul. After coming to WCBL and working with his prosthetist, Brian, he received a High-Fidelity Interface with HiFi technology prosthetic leg socket. From “100% better comfort”, to stability that allows him to walk easily on multiple surfaces, Paul is finally moving forward, setting goals, and quickly working towards reaching them.

A world of difference!
HiFi patient, Angelia, sought out biodesigns for a HiFi Interface socket, after receiving a socket from a well known company. She had been promised a simple socket with clean trim lines that allow users the ultimate comfort. Instead, her socket had high trim lines and caused her instability and pain. Particularly, she had issues on her femoral artery where one of the straps was located and was impinging her femoral artery. Additionally, her old socket was very large and bulky, thus prohibiting her from wearing certain clothing. As an active duty member of the military, Angelia needed a socket she could wear all day under intense and demanding physical requirements. She found that with her new HiFi socket. Angelia’s gait is now faster, more symmetrical, and has a narrower base. As a result, Angelia now has the ability to fully live her life and reach her goals. Angelia shared her HiFi experience in her own words.
