Acetabulum beats Trochanter alignment
Most Prosthetic Manual in the last 50 years refers to alignment based on the TKA Line (Greater-Trochanter, Knee, Ankle).
No one with a strong Biomechanical knowledge will contradict that the efficient Anatomical Prosthetic Alignment should be based on the AKA (Acetabulum, Knee, Ankle).
By converting to the AKA alignment your amputee will not have to overcome the biomechanical disadvantage of a TKA alignment, which is similar to going uphill every step they take.
Locating the center of the Acetabulum with precision has become child’s play with the use of a digital tool such as ePADTM (DAW’s Electronic Precision Alignment Device).
