A Line of Prosthetic Appliances
In 1989 by the Government decision the responsibility for development of up-to-date prosthetics systems for people with locomotor system damaged was laid on NPO Energia This trend became one of the leading ones in the conversion activities of the enterprise.
Serial production of wide nomenclature of modern modules and units for upper-and lower-limb prostheses and also orthopedic apparatus was developed and provided at RSC Energia based on a high scientific and technical potential of the staff and fruitful cooperation with Moscow and St. Petersburg organizations leading in the prosthetics field and the active support of Ministry of Health Protection and Social Development (Ministry of Labour) of the Russian Federation and Roscosmos of the Russian Federation.
The whole system of new prosthetic and orthopedic products was modular-constructed. A prosthetics specialist can assembly practically any prosthesis of separate modules individually for a particular patient.
