Prosthetic-to-liner attachment mechanism
A prosthetic assembly for a residual limb that includes a sleeve for attachment to a distal portion of the residual limb, where the attachment member has a diametrically oriented magnetic field, and a prosthesis with a socket for receiving the sleeve, where the prosthesis socket has a distal end with an attachment member having a corresponding diametrically oriented magnetic field. The diametrically oriented magnetic fields of the sleeve and prosthetic attachment members may be oriented on the prosthesis and the residual limb to achieve a predetermined rotational orientation between the prosthesis and the residual limb and will facilitate removal of the prosthesis with a twisting action.

Article of footwear for use with a prosthetic
An article of footwear for a prosthesis is provided and may include an upper, an outsole attached to the upper, and a midsole disposed between the upper and the outsole. The article of footwear may also include a cavity having a first portion defined between the upper and the midsole that receives the prosthesis when the prosthesis is inserted into the article of footwear and a second portion having a constant dimension between the upper and the midsole along the length of the second portion. The second portion may extend in a direction substantially parallel to a longitudinal axis of the midsole and may receive a distal end of the prosthesis when the prosthesis is fully inserted into the article of footwear.

Tube adapter for a prosthetic leg
The pipe-shaped prosthesis (1) is inserted between an artificial foot (3) and an artificial knee joint (5). A connecting element (2), to be fastened with screws (8) located at the back, is provided with a scale (6) showing the angle of the pipe (1) in relation to the knee joint (5). A second scale (4), printed on the pipe element (1) indicates the length of same when attached to the upper parts (2, 5) after having been removed for a particular purpose.
