Union Orthotics & Prosthetics Co. Provides Cutting-Edge Technology to Pittsburgh Amputees with Proteor Kinterra Foot-Ankle System

Union Orthotics & Prosthetics Co. is committed to providing the most advanced prosthetics and support services to amputees in Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania. We are excited to announce our collaboration with Team Proteor USA to introduce their latest cutting-edge technology, the Kinterra foot-ankle system, to our patients.

What Exactly is the Kinterra System?

It's a powerful prosthetic system that combines a hydraulic ankle with dorsi-assist spring, an EnduraCore® foot module, a male pyramid connection, and a Spectra sock. These features work together to provide amputees with improved mobility, stability, and comfort.

Our Prosthetics Team Lead, Drew Buffat, played a crucial role in setting up five of our patients with the Kinterra devices. We are thrilled to report that these pioneering amputees have successfully tried out the new PROTEOR USA Kinterra foot-ankle system, and we invite you to join them for a walkabout in Pittsburgh to see the system in action.  Check out the Proteor video below!


At Union Orthotics & Prosthetics Co., we are committed to staying ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest advancements in prosthetics. Our collaboration with Proteor USA and the introduction of the Kinterra system is just one example of how we are working to provide the best possible technology and support for our patients.

What Our Patients Are Saying About the Kinterra

  • “I've tried many different feet and this foot that I am wearing right now, the Kinterra, is the best foot that I have ever worn.” – Stephen J.

  • “Believe me, I'm a double-amputee and nothing's like this foot.” – Francisco M.

  • “This is just like having two regular feet. I mean I forgot that I have a prosthesis on." – Melissa B.

  • “I was skeptical at the beginning because of you know I'm thinking - yeah hydraulics foot - you know how smooth could it be but I mean the smoothness, it really impressed me it only took like a couple minutes even just to start walking and feeling very comfortable.” – Jeff L.

  • “Getting up and down in and out of a chair or up and down off a couch or a stool the fact that you have an ankle that you can bend allows more natural smooth movement." – Jeff T.
