Manuel Garcia Prosthetic and Orthotic Centers was one of the first facilities in the state of Ohio to be certified in the process of fitting Elevated Vacuum. Since the commercial release of Elevated Vacuum technology in 1998 we have had great success with fitting Elevated Vacuum, and have Beta Tested pumps for manufacturers.

Now with an evolution in the socket design this technology has redefined the comfort level for many amputees. There is minimal restriction of knee flexion, and superior comfort in all the different angles of the knee. Also by design the trim lines can be lowered to give ultimate flexibility and also maintain superior limb control.
