OPRA™ consists of an anchorage element (fixture) and a skin penetrating device (abutment).  The fixture is surgically inserted into the femur and after a healing time of several months the abutment is connected to the fixture.  The prosthetic leg is then attached directly to the abutment via the OPRA™ Axor™, a prosthetic connection and safety device.
