Challenges of a Modern AK-Socket Design

Not available
This event has a fee
Prosthetic socket design has to fulfill biomechanical aspects as well as specific embedding characteristics. Experts in this care area report on the latest approaches to high performance socket designs in transfemoral prosthetics. Different methods of shape detection from plaster cast to digital scan are considered as well as the critical debate on the design of the sockets entry level (Ischial containment, Ischio-Ramal containment, subischial technique). Concrete approaches for the improvement of the sockets guidance behavior will be shown, as well as measures with influence on the reduction of stump-socket-pseudarthrosis and the painful stump.View Course Preview....
