About Tabe Med
TABE MED inspired by the name ( Tabe Ketin Met ) and she is The daughter of one of the priests in the ancient Egyptian civilization, ( Tabe Ketin Met ) is considered as the first person in history using a prosthesis to offset her about the loss one of her toes due to the Diabetic, and we in TABE MED wanted to follow our pharaohs ancestors’ approach and the great Egyptian civilization to regain glory by providing the best mobility solutions and most distinguished for an easy life to our patients.
We know that you are hoping to have a Prosthesis from the future, doesn’t have any health problems or bothering you while using it. And most importantly, being in an appropriate and fashionable form.
As a TABE MED company we offer you the prosthesis that cares for you not what you look after it, the prosthesis that gives you a comfort and normal life.
Our connection with you will not end at this point, so after providing you with the ideal prosthesis we will be as a family that supports you in regard to your health condition.
Let us take a short trip through this booklet to find out more about all you care.
Providing everything new and neat with a reasonable price for amputation owners and wishing by fitting a prosthesis which enables them to complete their lives without obstacles or bothering reviews as we assure to provide the best therapeutic and rehabilitative sessions by the most skilled physiotherapist.
Our company is not looking for financial profit as much as seeking to your comfort and a value profit added to the community again so there are both mental and physical rehabilitation before and after service for free.
Our service is not limited to regional patients only but also we have an integrated specialized team can travel everywhere in the world to help.
Providing our support to the amputation owners and who needs a prosthetic devices, prosthesis or who suffers from physical disabilities so that they can live a better life and achieve their goals easily, so we are keen to provide the ideal product at the lowest prices.

Our Product History
The success of the Echelon Foot focused developments on bio-mimetic designs that would closely mimic human posture and function. The latest, award winning Elan Foot gives sophisticated microprocessor controlled action to assist walking and secure the limb appropriately on slopes. More recently, Linx is the first microprocessor-controlled lower limb system where the foot and knee continuously talk to each other to optimise performance and improve safety.
Meanwhile, the company expanded into new territories – Germany in 2011 and Norway and Turkey in 2015. We now have approximately 800 staff globally and offer world class clinical services and award-winning prosthetic, orthotic and seating products that combine our rich heritage with clinical expertise, scientific evidence and technological innovation.
The 2000s were an exciting period of development within Blatchford with innovative output of feet, ankles and knees. Knees included the KX06, a one-off linkage and hydraulic control hybrid, that enables smoother gait.
Foot developments meant another dramatic development with the Echelon foot providing fluid ankle motion using a hydraulic foot/ankle in combination with independent eCarbon spring heel and toe action.
In 1990 Blatchford began development of the first commercially available microprocessor controlled prosthetic knee in the world. The Intelligent Prosthesis (IP) programmed to each individual user to achieve the smoothest, energy saving gait pattern was soon followed by a unique hybrid pneumatic/hydraulic microprocessor controlled knee, able to detect ramps, stairs and speed and respond accordingly. Another innovation during this period was an injection moulded volume limb system for large scale use in developing countries, a waterproof version, the Aqualimb continues to be popular.
More Awards followed as Blatchford changed the nature of Prosthetic components by developing the world’s first carbon fibre prosthetic system using materials developed for the aircraft industry. This technology promoted light, high strength designs that passed the new ISO standards for limb components. The innovation paved the way for the future development of flexible feet and shin components that would allow energy return to enhance walking and sports activities.
Designed by Brian Blatchford, the Modular Assembly Prosthesis (MAP) was the first UK modular system. It allowed the assembly of a prosthesis from a series of stock components. Finally large numbers of amputees could be fitted within a reasonable time scale. The company won a series of awards, including The Queen’s Award and Design Council Award, for this successful innovation.
1950s & 60s
The need for better limb controls became more apparent after World War II with the huge increase in young active amputees. Blatchford development resources concentrated on a new knee that would stablise during weight bearing but swing freely during walking, thereby allowing a natural walking pattern. Called the Blatchford Stabilised Knee, this device was to become popular worldwide.
Blatchford was also outgrowing it’s London offices and needed space to grow and more room to increase production to meet demands. In early 1960, the Board started the process of looking for locations outside London and by the late-60s the new company head office and factory was open on Lister Road in Basingstoke – a site that Blatchford still owns and operates today, although the headquarters have since moved a few miles down the road!
Second World War & the NHS
During the Second World War, W. A. Blatchford was involved in discussions with the Ministry of Pensions to determine how best to provide for the needs of air raid casualties and the war wounded returning home.
After the founding of the NHS 1948, the company was directed to concentrate on providing lower limb prosthesis and Blatchford has been a provider of prosthetic services to the NHS since its inception.
First World War
The outbreak of war in 1914 and the resulting huge number of casualties returning to Great Britain meant there was an increased need for upper and lower limb prosthetic components. The war acted to stimulate development of artificial limbs including improvements in design, quality and production.
Early years from 1890
The Anglesea or Clapper Leg was developed for the First Marquess of Anglesea in 1816 after he lost a limb during the Battle of Waterloo the previous year. The latter name was given for the noise it made on full extension!
This leg was a feature of Blatchford clinical provision when the company was founded by Chas A. Blatchford in London in 1890.
