Results from a pilot study using a new patient-adjustable socket system are presented. During in-patient rehab after TF amputation, patients wore a new adjustable socket for a week. Patients reported improved comfort and greater satisfaction with the new socket compared to the standard socket.
A retrospective study from four US clinics examined AMP scores obtained during lower limb fittings. The results provide reference data by amputation level and mobility grade (K-Level), but also reveal differences between sites in how the AMP is used in the assignment of K-Level.
