Be confident in any kind of water. This WaterLeg won’t rust, absorb water or cost you an arm and a leg. You can have a light, strong copy of your current prosthesis that looks as good or even better. Read our material thoroughly, then contact your prosthetist and see if you are insured for one. If not, don't worry and check out our fundraising idea page!

Fundamentally different!

The WaiterGait's solid outer shell is
 impervious to water, unlike the standard
 soft skin cover on the right, which will
 tear, leak and smell bad if gotten wet.

that CAN be used for the 
  WaterGait™ WaterLeg
1.  Shuttle LockWe recommend the Coyote™ brand of shuttle lock, which is made entirely of durable plastic and a stainless steel spring mechanism. Other shuttle locks are NOT designed to hold up to repeated water exposure. Generally, an outer sleeve is also worn to reduce water entering the socket (can be ordered on request).

2.  Suction. (passive) This refers to a basic suction valve. There are many valves on the market and we will work with you to find the most reliable and cost effective model. An Active Suction System, with a mechanical or battery powered pump, is NOT practical for application to the WaterGait™ WaterLeg. So, if you currently wear an active suction system, we will speak with you and determine whether a passive suction system or shuttle lock would be more practical.

3. Supra-condylar suspension. A wedge can be glued to the socket or a pelite liner. It is suggested that some sort of sleeve be worn as a secondary suspension to minimize water getting between the liner and the socket and/or skin.
