NEW Air-Lock Lamination

Instruction Video

Very thorough instructions of entire prosthetic fabrication process using Coyote Designs CD103 Air-Lock.  Video depicts layup, lamination and finishing of prosthetic.  The layup uses Coyote Composite and Coyote Design's CD103AF Alignable Connector. The lamination uses modified acrylic resin (Nano Resin). The cast is modified with the StabileFlex Transtibial Socket Design.

Coyote Design AirLock is Aqualeg Compatable

A lightweight, dual-suspension pin system designed to combine suction suspension comfort with pin suspension security. The airtight seal prevents air from coming into the bottom of the socket, creating suction and reducing pistoning even without a sleeve! Also available with a longer pin for patients who struggle with pin engagement.

Coyote Design has a new heavy duty Air-Lock option that includes our solid brass pin. Coyote found the new brass pins are more durable, have less deflection and have exceptional wear characteristics. These pins increase the Air-Lock weight capacity from 265lbs to 350lbs.  Like most Coyote products, it is non-corrosive and water resistant, making it great for active people and heavier weight patients.  The pin also helps eliminate noise issues.

  •  Suction allows for less traction on the limb for increased comfort and decreased liner wear
  •  Expulsion valve or suspension sleeve are not needed to maintain suction in most cases
  •  Water-resistant
  •  Do not use with elevated vacuum
  •  Dual suspension, suction pin lock system
  •  Gain extra suspension even without a sleeve
  •  Reduces pistoning and traction on end of limb
  •  Improves suspension and comfort
  •  Decreases distal pressure
  •  Single-stage lamination
  •  Offset alignment capability
  •  Great for active and heavier weight patients
  •  Pin may help reduce or eliminate noise issues.
  •  Increases the Air-Locks weight capacity to 350lbs.
  •  Suction allows for less traction on the limb for increased     comfort and decreased liner wear

Single Lamination and Offset Fabrication

The fabrication procedure for the Air-Lock and Easy-Off Lock

is a time and money saver. The Alignable Connector is

attached to the lock in the desired location for prosthetic

alignment, allowing the lock to remain in ideal lock alignment

for easy engagement. A single lamination is done that

incorporates the lock and the connector into the socket. The

offset capability saves money by eliminating need for offset

components, and saves time with a single lamination and

easy component setup.

 

Billing Information

Coyote Design® believes that “suction” in a prosthetic refers to negative pressure created inside the socket, rather than componentry such as an expulsion valve or sleeve. Because we think of suction as a function, we believe it should be permitted to bill L5671 in conjunction with the L5647 or L5652 in cases when it is medically necessary. As with other situations where multiple suspension methods are used and billed we feel the combination of a lock and suction helps to increase safety for the patient.
