Seat Options

There are many types of seats that are available that fit differently. We select a seat that would be for your weight and size from the information that comes from your measurement form. How you're going to use the Legsim is another consideration.

A person who wants the device for short time use “going to the rest room at night” would want a seat that would be easy to mount, typically a narrow back.

For a person who will use the Legsim for longer periods of time, such as a person who suffers from neuromas and has a problem wearing their prosthesis all day, a wider soft gel seat would be a better choice.

Hip disarticulations often do better with a split seat where the residual femur does not have excessive pressure on it. The gel seat cover can be hollowed out or compressed to achieve a more comfortable custom fit.
