Socket Design Focused
The innovative growing technology of prosthetic knees and feet have made a helpful impact for amputees, but the most important part of a prosthesis is the Socket. The socket is the interface between their limb and the prosthesis. For lower limb amputees, the socket allows the transfer of body weight through the prosthesis to the ground. This needs to be comfortable, responsive, and consistent.
At Human Tech we use a variety of socket designs and suspension methods. We believe in both ischial containment and subischial socket designs depending on anatomy, strength, and activities of the individual. We routinely utilize suction, elevated vacuum, or locking suspension methodsin the socket design.
The only way to confirm the appropriate design and daily consistency of the prosthesis is by diagnostic fittings and component trials. When appropriate we will fabricate multiple diagnostic socket and setup trail fittings for microprocessor knees and feet.
This is Human Techs’ specialty
We are the premier provider for Above knee prosthetics in Tennessee. We use both Ossur and Ottobock Microprocessor controlled knees. We use a large variety of mechanical knees for sport prosthesis, activity specific, and everyday activities. The socket design, function and fit are the key points. We focus on socket design, diagnostic fittings/trials and we do all fabrication for prosthetics in our facility.
