New methods to improve the assessment, analysis and quality of prosthetic socket fit (Remedi Research Report)

Authors: Sewell, P., Vinney, J. and Noroozi, S.

Publisher: University of the West of England, Bristol


BENEFITS: The team has produced a relatively cheap but sophisticated measuring system which should be able to be developed for clinical use. The system would provide well fitting sockets at the first measurement session, with resultant speeding up of mobilization, while avoiding the induction of pressure areas, thereby reducing ulceration of the stump.
