Transfemoral socket design in the US and Germany: What is state of the art?

In cooperation with The American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists

Description

Transfemoral socket design and fit management are challenging, and there appear to be divergent trends among German and US prosthetists regarding brim designs. Research evidence regarding ischial containment and sub-ischial socket designs will be reviewed from biomechanical and patient-centric perspectives. Attendees will also learn standardized impression taking and modifying techniques for both designs from leading clinical experts from the US and Germany.
