A newly developed socket design for a knee disarticulation amputee who is an active athlete.


:This case report describes a newly developed socket design for a world class knee disarticulation athlete. To meet the demands concerning especially the suspension of the prosthesis a new type of socket was developed. The socket is made from carbon fibres and polyaramid fibres and is designed with a slit in the socket creating a flexible flap. This allows the amputee to both increase and decrease the inner circumference of the socket, thereby allowing the amputee to adjust the socket to stump variations. According to the amputee the new design offers an excellent fit and enables him to concentrate fully on the technical aspects of the different disciplines.
