4 Ways to Feel in Control of Your Prosthetic Limb

At CJ Socket Technologies, Inc., we believe that it's important for you, the wearers, to feel in control of your prosthetic limbs, and our CJ ActivFIT socket is designed to help you achieve it.


Our ActivFIT socket gives you control because it’s adjustable by you. Here are 4 other ways to feel in control:




Tip 1: Set realistic goals and expectations


One of the keys to feeling in control is setting realistic goals and expectations. It's important to remember that your prosthetic limb will not function exactly like a biological limb, but that doesn't mean it can't be functional and useful.



Tip 2: Practice, practice, practice


Like any skill, using our ActivFIT socket with your prosthetic limb takes practice. The more you use it, the more natural it will feel and the more control you will have over it. Make sure to work with your prosthetist to develop a training program that works for you.



Tip 3: Communicate with your prosthetist


Your prosthetist is an invaluable resource when it comes to feeling in control. Make sure to communicate any issues or concerns you have, as well as any specific goals you want to achieve. Your prosthetist can work with you to make any necessary adjustments and provide guidance on how to use the ActivFit socket effectively.



Tip 4: Try new activities


Don't be afraid to try new activities. Start with simple activities and gradually work your way up to more complex ones. You may be surprised at what you can achieve, stage by stage.



Summary


In conclusion, gaining control over your prosthetic limb involves a balanced mix of realistic goal-setting, consistent practice, open communication with your prosthetist, and the courage to try new activities.


With CJ Socket Technologies Inc.'s ActivFIT socket, we stand committed to supporting your journey to feeling empowered and in control. Remember, every small step you take is a stride towards greater autonomy and self-confidence. Here's to making the impossible, possible!
