Warranties

All flexible inner sockets, preparatory sockets, and definitive sockets are warrantied for 90 days following the date of delivery to the patient. This includes ONLY mechanical failures inherent to the use of the prosthesis by the patient. 

Test sockets are not warrantied due to their nature of short-term, mainly in-clinic use.

No flexible inner socket or definitive socket will be warrantied based on the fit to the patient. If there are discrepancies with the fit, these should be assessed and rectified during the test socket phase.

Refunds & Returns

All refunds and returns will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The refund or return request must be submitted by email to joe@ascentfab.com no later than two weeks following the mechanical failure of the device or delivery of the shipment to the clinician. All refund and return requests must submit anterior, medial, lateral, and posterior pictures of the device in question, as well as a detailed account of the event that caused the mechanical failure. The device will only be refunded or re-fabricated if we deem any failure to be the result of proper use by the clinician, technician, or patient according to our guidelines and specifications.

Disclaimers

By purchasing any definitive device, the client assumes all liability after delivery of the device to the patient. All lower limb orthoses will be in R&D until further notice. 

All 3D printed test sockets will not be as transparent as traditionally vacuum formed test sockets. This is in the nature of the product manufacturing process and cannot be avoided. 

It is suggested that if a flexible inner socket is to be used, then the clinician should achieve a 2ply fit for the test socket due to the inherent friction of the 3D printed flexible inner socket. 

If the 3D printed test socket or prep socket is to be used outside the office, then the clinician assumes all liability. These sockets should be fiberglass wrapped at the clinician’s discretion.

Flexible inner sockets, protective covers, and definitive sockets have a 90 day warranty, while prep sockets have a 60 day warranty, including ONLY mechanical failures inherent to the use of the prosthesis by a patient.
