[Abstract]:
How can an amputee judge whether the position of the prosthetic socket is correct?

 

1. In the standing position, whether the ischial tuberosity feels good,when the body weight is transferred to the prosthesis, ; there is no tenderness in the subpubic bone and adductor muscles; the skin at the end of the residual limb feels touching the bottom of the prosthetic socket but there is no pain; when walking the angle of external rotation of the prosthetic foot is similar to the real foot.

 

2. If the ischial tuberosity does not bear weight after wearing, the skin at the end of the residual limb cannot touch the bottom of the prosthetic socket; and the inner part of the thigh of the residual limb (that is, the upper edge of the receiving cavity) has large skin folds, when these conditions occur , It means that the soft tissue of the residual limb is not all pulled into the receiving cavity, it is not worn correctly, and the prosthesis needs to be taken off and put on again.

3. If the prosthesis is worn, the inner part of the residual limb is found to be uncomfortable during standing or walking, and the prosthetic toe is rotated outward or inward excessively during walking, indicating that the prosthesis is incorrectly worn or crooked, and it needs to be taken off and worn again. Care should be taken to make the direction of the inner wall of the prosthetic socket consistent with the walking direction of the amputee when re-crossing.

 

Warm reminder from Aosuo Prosthetics Company: Although the prosthesis helps you solve many problems, it needs regular maintenance and cleaning during use to reduce skin friction.
