Designed for patients with an above-knee amputation (AKA), the Patriot™ Endo-Exo Stem is designed to osseointegrate with the intemedullary canal of the femur to act as a transcutaneous, distal intramedullary device, with a distal external coupling system which serves to connect with the AKA prosthetic. Incorporated into the design is a safety measure, activated in cases of high torque activity. The pin located between the endo and exo components serves to protect the femur from mechanical overload by acting as a stress relief point. In the event of shearing, the pin can be easily located and replaced as it is positioned in the distal aspect of the device.
