The ActivFIT socket is one of the most important components of a prosthetic limb, as it’s responsible for connecting the residual limb to the prosthetic device. The design of the socket plays a crucial role in ensuring that the wearer is comfortable and able to use the prosthetic limb effectively.
When a person wears a prosthetic limb, the socket is in direct contact with their residual limb. Therefore, it’s vital that the socket can be adjusted properly by the user, so they can distribute pressure evenly across their residual limb. Otherwise a socket can cause discomfort, pain, and even skin breakdown.
Proper socket design with an adjustable fit is essential to achieving optimal function and comfort. A well-fitting socket provides stability and support, while also allowing for a full range of motion.
In addition to fit and design, the material used to make the socket is also important. The socket should be made of a material that’s comfortable, durable, and can withstand regular use. At CJ Socket Technologies, Inc., we use advanced materials and techniques to create custom ActivFIT sockets that match up with each individual's unique needs.
