Prosthetic Orthotic Designs specializes in fitting the most comfortable socket for even the most unique limb shapes.
For lower limb amputees, a comfortable socket is the first step in designing a long-lasting and versatile prosthesis.
For new amputees, our socket design is comfortable and lightweight. This allows you to adjust to your prosthesis safely and comfortably.
A soft elastic distal end cup is placed inside each below knee socket to cushion between your residual limb and the prosthesis.
The above knee socket is slight different in that it uses suction to hold the residual limb in place. Our clients vastly prefer this system for keeping the socket tight and comfortable on their residual limb. Traditional pin systems have a disadvantage because the size of your residual limb changes throughout the day requiring you to constantly adjust the pin system to maintain socket suction.
