Sockets & Liners

Prosthetic sockets are the foundation of any functional prosthesis, whether it may be for the lower extremity or upper extremity.

A highly skilled prosthetist would guide you throughout the fitting process and might attempt many adjustments within your socket to make it compliant for your daily use. On a daily basis, an amputee wears his/her prosthesis for an average of 7 – 8 hours. Thus it’s our responsibility at Xtremity to ensure we leave no stone unturned to make them comfortable and yet functional based upon your needs and activities.

In a transtibial socket, we have the following options available: – Specific weight-bearing socket – Total surface weight-bearing socket There are different socket designs for each amputation level, each tailored to the individual presentation of the user and considering how and where load-bearing forces are distributed through your limb.

Some of the common types of suspension used worldwide are:
