Abstract:

An amputation is the final point of no return within the medical struggle to save a patients limb. In this case, rehabilitation is usually achieved by providing the amputee with a socket prosthesis, which embraces the soft tissue of the remaining stump. However, this method always implies the risk of skin-irritation and volume-changes of the stump, which lead to the inability to rehabilitate all amputees with satisfactory results.
