Lower Limb Socket Comfort
A prosthetic socket is a crucial component in a prosthesis. It acts as the interface between the prosthetic technology and the residual limb. If it doesn’t fit correctly, amputees can experience pain, sores and blisters, and the prosthesis will feel heavy and cumbersome. As a result, an amputee's ability to move freely without pain may be compromised and they may not use their prosthesis at all.
