    Brand: ALPS
    The ALPS VIP® is an air expulsion integrated pump for elevated vacuum. Its use provides patients with continuous total contact when donning the prosthesis. This is essential for even weight distribution and to distribute the suspension of the prosthesis over the whole surface of the residual limb. The elevated vacuum created by the VIP® stabilizes the residual limb, overcoming all issues connected with the residual limb changing volume during the day.

    What is Elevated Vacuum?

    • Elevated vacuum suspension systems act by drawing out air trapped between the socket and liner
    • Achieved by a mechanical or electrical pump
    • Generates a uniform negative pressure within the socket that pulls the liner and patients residual limb towards the inner socket walls
    • Requires a total-surface-bearing socket and usually used in conjunction with a sealing sleeve
