How your Prosthetic Leg is made

Steps to Making your Prosthesis

Our Prosthetist will cast your residual limb.

The cast is filled and modified for fabrication of the check socket.

A check socket is made to trial for comfort, fit and function.This is normally trialed by the patient for a couple of weeks and modified until the fit is perfect.

Once the check socket is perfected, we begin working on the definitive socket. A lamination process is used to create the hard shell known as the socket.

The socket is then attached to a pylon and foot, or knee/hip joint, depending on level of amputation.

Your definitive prosthesis is fitted to your limb and adjusted to suit.
