VIP is an air expulsion pumping system for prosthetic socket.
The use of VIP provides patients continuous total contact when donning the prosthesis.
This is essential for an even weight distribution and to distribute the suspension of the prosthesis over the whole surface of the residual limb.
The vacuum created by the VIP stabilizes the residual limb, overcoming all issues connected with the stump changing volume during the day.
VIP is easy to install in the prosthetic socket.
It doesn’t require the use of batteries or other power sources, and the need for pistons and cylinders to pump air out of the socket
It’s quite, light and doesn’t affect the cosmetic appearance of the prosthesis.
ALPS VIP is available with 2 different vacuum levels: Low Vacuum or High Vacuum.
