SHAPE

Calf reconstruction is our standard. For amputations below the knee (BK), the FlexCover is shaped exactly like the calf (It also depends on the shape of the socket). However, in the case of amputations above the knee (AK), we recommend reducing the FlexCover circumference by a few percent, and even above ten percent for a very large calf.

 

COLOURS

Black and Skin colour are our standard and most popular colours. Other colours are also available, but the ordering time may be extended by one week.

 

 

A Flex Definition Colour Guide is also available.

FAQ

1. Do you need a definitive carbon fibre socket before ordering the cover?
Yes, the socket must be definitive and all prosthetic settings, feet angles, etc., must be set up before taking measurements. Only for above-knee amputation may the socket be temporary.

2. What measurements do I have to take before placing an order?
Each of our FlexCovers is made individually to fit the patient’s calf and prosthesis. We manufacture our covers according to the data you provide us with. You will have to fill the forms shared below.

3. What is the expected delivery date after placing an order?
1-2 weeks plus shipment that takes several days to cover the whole world. For example, transport to such distant countries as India, Israel or Brazil took only 5 days.


4. How do I place an order?
First, you will have to fill the form available on our website and send it to us. If you provide us with a 3d scan along with the form we will send a visualisation of your cover to you. Once you accept it we will start the manufacturing process, which usually takes us about a 1-2 week, and then ship it to you.

5. Can the FlexCover be used with every type of prosthetic feet?
We manufacture FlexCovers for every type of prosthetic feet however there are some restrictions. If the foot is flat on its upper part, then the FlexCover will be adjacent to it on its edges (the covers diameter fill be the same as the foot’s).
On the other hand, if the upper part of the foot is not flat (as shown below) and the foot has an adjustable angle (e.g., for women wearing heels), then the cover is behind the foot — the diameter is slightly larger than the diameter of the upper part of the foot. In this case, we need a scanned foot.
6. Can the FlexCover be used with every type of prostheses?
Yes, we manufacture our covers for every type of prostheses. It doesn’t matter if the amputation is above the knee or below. Our covers are individually designed for each customer, we don’t have unified sizes like S, L, XL. No two flex covers are the same!

7. How do I send pictures along with the form from your website?

You can send the pictures and the form to us in the same mail.

8. Is the FlexCover water/sunlight-resistant?
The FlexCovers are water-resistant, provided they are glued to the prosthetic foot. However, we strongly recommend that the prosthesis is also waterproof. They are also sun resistant. The sunlight may slightly change the colour of the cover. In places, with strong sunlight, we recommend using the Flex or FlexPlus covers only.

9. How much does Flex weigh?
The weight of the FlexCover depends on the chosen design. The typical weight ranges from 300 - 650 grams, depending on the design and personal measurements. Flex are imperceptible while walking.

10. Will my FlexCover protect my prosthesis from impact?
Flex protects the prosthesis from the usual use of the prosthesis. Scratching the overlay does not cause colour loss, because we print them from materials coloured in bulk.

11. How to care for FlexCover?
Flex do not require special care. You can clean them with a soft damp cloth under running water, you can also use soap.

12. How can I get a Flex demo for my company?
If you are interested in offering Flex products in your company, the best solution is to have a FlexDemo available for patients so that they can see and feel it. Write to us at nextt@nexttprosthetics.com to learn more about how to get Flex in the demo version.

13. How can I purchase a Flex Definition Colour Guide for my company?
A Flex Definition Colour Guide is available - the delivery time is approx. 2 weeks.

14. Can Flex be cut or sanded?
Yes of course. Sometimes an additional hole is needed in the Flex cover, e.g. for a lock release button or linner locking pin. This can be done using a drill, a grinder or even a soldering iron. We use the same machines that you use to process your prosthetic socket.

15. Can the shape of the Flex cover be changed?
Of course, just like we change the shape of a temporary prosthetic socket by using a stream of hot air. But you have to be very careful not to overheat because when it exceeds about 200 degrees C it will start to melt. Warm it up slowly and after obtaining the appropriate shape, put it into cold water.

ORDERING

You can either take measurements and fill the form attached below. But sometimes photos and measurements are not enough and we can ask for a scan of the prosthesis.

If you have a 3d scanner, placing an order will be even easier. We recommend a very good and inexpensive 3D Structure Sensor scanner.

Sometimes there is a problem with scanning glossy surfaces. Therefore, you should spray these surfaces with a special spray. It could be IP Scan-Spray (www.ipdent.com).
