Lapoc System Prostheses: Product Overview
Lapoc System Prostheses, designed from the maker’s point of view to meet the demands of users.
It's been 40 years now since a request came from the Labor Administration Prosthetics Orthotics Center (now the Rosai Rehabilitation Engineering Center), and based on the concept of "designing from the maker's point of view to meet the demands of users," we developed Japan's first modular prosthesis system with the goal of jointly developing a system of prosthetics structured to suit a Japanese lifestyle. The "Lapoc" in "Lapoc System Prostheses" comes from the initials of the Labor Administration Prosthetics Orthotics Center (now the Rosai Rehabilitation Engineering Center) where these products were first developed. "Lapoc" is used as the brand name for the prosthetics department at Imasen Engineering Corporation and has been widely recognized as Japan's first modular prosthesis system. We continue to develop this product today at Imasen Engineering Corporation, based on the technology and expertise we have cultivated up to the present. We continue to produce outstanding products, like knee joints based on new designs, prostheses for children, and prostheses for sports and recreation, that offer a better life to their users.
|System Prostheses||SL Prostheses||Children’s Prostheses|
|All these products are based on the Lapoc modular prosthesis system, offering a line-up of products to suit every activity level. We have a wide selection of products to meet an amputee's every need.||SL prostheses get their name from the initials of three S-words - Simple, Senior, and Safety - and the word Light. Designed for senior citizens with safety as a priority, this system of prostheses is also made to be simple and lightweight. This system can be used by anyone concerned about knee safety, and not just senior citizens.||These prostheses are not simply smaller versions of adult prostheses. Instead, they have been developed with the special activity patterns of children in mind, resulting in Japan's first modular prosthesis system for children.|
