Working for you to find your Prosthetic Solutions
When considering socket design there is no absolute but well-established principles. The function of any prosthetic socket is to transmit external forces to the skeleton via the soft tissues.

The key elements to achieving good socket fit are:
Working for you to ensure your balance and safety are optimal
The fundamental biomechanical principles governing the behaviour of a prosthesis remain the same independent of socket style. The Centre of Mass (COM) position in relation to the Centre of pressure (COP) determine the direction and level of forces interacting between the residual limb and socket wall. Poor alignment will likely cause gait deviation, instability and an increase in energy cost when mobilising. This often result in socket discomfort during ambulation.
