Anyone who wears a prosthesis knows that fit, comfort and suspension are critical. That’s why it’s important to know your options when it comes to sockets and liners. As the part of the prosthesis that connects directly with your residual limb, the socket is an extension of your body. Prosthetic users are looking for two key attributes here: comfort and the confidence of secure suspension. If the socket doesn’t fit right, is uncomfortable or doesn’t feel secure, the other components of the prosthesis will not matter because you’re probably not going to wear it.
