The APOPPS™ (Adjustable Postoperative Protective and Preparatory Systems)*, from FLO-TECH® O & P Systems, Inc., are available in 17 transtibial sizes (Children/Youth/Adult) plus 3 Adult transfemoral.

Children sizes fit distal tibial circumferences of 8 and 9", length of 5": 6 sockets* left and right, or 12 prefabricated sockets.

Youth sizes fit distal tibial circumferences of 10, 11 and 12", length of 7": 9 sockets* left and right, or 18 prefabricated sockets.

FLO-TECH® stocks Royal Knit amputation socks and all pylon and foot components necessary to complete the system with one phone call and overnight shipping. The price a practitioner pays (in many case) is less than the manufacturer’s price. When components are purchased as complete packages (foot and all other required components), the price a practitioner pays is less than the manufacturer’s price. And, when components are ordered with sockets or systems practitioners save even more by avoiding additional shipping charges.

The APOPPS™ has long been trusted by prosthetists for offering added protection, diligent wound care, controlled shaping of the residuum and early rehabilitation of transtibial, and now transfemoral, amputations. A variety of sizes and custom sockets (fabricated from measurements received in our lab by noon) are shipped the same day—making the benefits of the very latest in postoperative prosthetic rehabilitation technology available to all amputees.

*The APOPPS™ consists of three sockets: FLO-TECH-TOR™, VCSPS™ and UFOS™.
