Hip socket fabrication

Many practitioners see only a few hips in their careers. If you have a challenging hip or hemipelvectomy patient you'd like to work with, give Ottobock a call.

Our fabrication experts have decades of experience with hip and hemipelvectomy sockets and see many each month. We can offer the support you need to get a great solution for your patients. And we’ve got all the tools and materials to get even very large sockets done right.



  • High volume and years of experience: Our Technicians know their stuff and love their work—with literally 100s of hip sockets behind them.
  • Different types of sockets: Ottobock hip and hemipelvectomy sockets can be made in multiple ways—including hybrid sockets that are part traditional socket and part custom silicone for better comfort and fit.
  • Complete prostheses: Complete hip prostheses take advantage of the best Ottobock has to offer, like the Helix 7E10 and the 7E9 hydraulic hip joints—and C-Leg and Genium knees. These components are designed to work together to create a smooth, comfortable and secure system for your patients.
  • Clinical help for the complete system: Ottobock’s Cooperative Care team can take you to the next level with hip patients. Our clinicians work side-by-side with you and your patient; we’re not so much a consultant as a trusted partner. And with fabrication facilities just a few steps away, the process from casting to test socket can happen in a day! Your patient can leave walking on that new test system. You’ll get a great outcome for your patient without the worry. Find out more about Cooperative Care.
