Integrum’s OPRA™ (Osseoanchored Prostheses for the Rehabilitation of Amputees) Implant System is the only FDA-approved, bone-anchored prosthetic solution available in the United States. OPRA™ consists of an anchorage element (fixture) and a skin penetrating device (abutment). The fixture is surgically inserted into the femur and after a healing time of several months the abutment is connected to the fixture. The prosthetic leg is then attached directly to the abutment via the OPRA™ Axor™, a prosthetic connection and safety device.
