Vacuum Integrated Pump
The ALPS VIP is an air expulsion integrated pump for elevated vacuum. Its use 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. Elevated vacuum created by the VIP stabilizes the residual limb, overcoming all issues connected with the residual limb changing volume during the day
Efficiently deals with stump volume fluctuation which in turn leads to improved prosthesis control and comfort
Reduces the intensity of peaks in pressure on the patient’s limbs, improving comfort and providing greater freedom of movement
Helps preserve residual limb skin health by improving circulation and consequently increasing limb oxygenation
Quit and light does not affect the cosmetic appearance of the prosthesis
Easy to install and battery-free
