Eugene Rossouw

prosthetic technology

As prosthetic devices are mechanical and/or electro-mechanical devices, technological advancements greatly influence prosthetic device development and improvement.



Prosthetic component manufacturers all have proactive R&D departments that work on constantly launching newly developed products, or updated and improved versions of existing products, that can improve an amputee’s function, mobility, safety or cosmetic expectations of a prosthesis.

Eugene Rossouw is very proactive in attending training courses, seminars and conferences both locally and internationally. On average, Eugene attends specialised training courses and certifications twice yearly overseas with the most renowned prosthetic device manufacturers. Eugene was a clinical prosthetic specialist for one of the leading international prosthetic manufacturers, OSSUR, for a period of six years working in Central Europe, East Europe, Russia, The Middle East, North Africa and South Africa. He gained invaluable experience and knowledge during this period.

To fit the majority of prosthetic devices by all manufacturers, no special certification or authorisation is needed other than being a registered Medical Orthotist & Prosthetist. However, many of the superior and advanced prosthetic devices needs specialised training and certification or authorisation. These typically include myo-electronic arm devices (hands and elbows), bionic prosthetic knees and foot-ankle devices. Eugene is certified/authorised to fit all currently available products from the leading prosthetic device manufactures. Please follow link for relevant certifications/authorisations.
