Comfortable residual limb socket for forearm amputees
For many arm amputees, using a prosthesis is essential at work and in their private lives. However, a successful prosthetic fitting depends to a large degree on the quality of the socket. Functionality, comfort and hygiene are criteria that enable the user to lead a largely independent everyday life.
The SiOCX TR socket was developed to meet precisely these requirements. The use of HTV silicone in the inner socket ensures excellent adhesion on the residual limb. Different degrees of silicone hardness and integrated gel pads improve comfort in sensitive areas of the residual limb, which is a benefit with residual limbs sensitive to pressure in particular. The flexible sections of the inner and outer socket provide extensive freedom of movement and optimum adaptability of the residual limb. Last but not least, users appreciate the uncomplicated cleaning of the SiOCX TR socket. For myoelectric arm prostheses, we also offer the option of integrating conductive interfaces into the inner socket.
