Bath prosthetics are not available as a complete product, since each prosthesis is manufactured individually. It is in the decision of the orthopedic technician which components (components) he uses and which company.
Baths are used in shell construction and serve as a water-resistant assistant. The shaft has a contact bed with valve and has lateral holes in the lower shaft. The lower leg is internally hollow so that water can flow into the cavity. The holes are so-called flood holes. This is important to reduce the buoyancy of the prosthesis body in the water.
The outer shell of the shaft is the supporting wall and also cosmetics. There must be no materials on the prosthesis, which can be destroyed by water. Always use an articulated foot as a prosthesis foot. The prosthesis shaft is firmly connected to the foot.
