Socket Issues or Discomfort

December 6, 2012

Proper socket fitting requires a skilled clinician and a plan tailored to your unique needs. Without a sound clinical plan, socket fitting can take far too long, yet still provide little in the way of improvement and comfort. Unfortunately, a one-size-fits-all approach is used in the prosthetic industry, which inevitably compromises comfort and your ability. Ask yourself, is your current socket:

  1. Easy to put on and take off?
  2. Wearable all day without causing irritation or discomfort?
  3. Giving you full and complete control of the prosthesis?

If your answer to any of the above questions is no, you should consider other options. If your current efforts are not solving the issues you are facing, contact us for a specialist opinion on the many available solutions which you may not have tried.
