Prosthetics Pressure Measurement

F-Socket™ Pressure System Features

  • Addresses the needs of the Orthotist & Prosthetist (O & P) professional by enabling improved design, fit, and function of prosthetics
  • Provides detailed pressure profiles and graphical displays for quantitative analysis
  • Uses a paper-thin, high-resolution sensor placed within the socket that can be trimmed into freely floating fingers to closely approximate the curvature of the socket interface
  • Closely examines the formation of pressures within the socket interface during the various phases of gait allowing you to modify the socket/stump interface accordingly
  • Sensors trim to fit prosthetic

Benefits of Pressure Mapping:

  • Improve design and fit of sockets and prosthetics
  • Increase longevity for wear of socket and use of prosthesis
  • Reduce recovery time for improved healing
  • Tangible, visible biofeedback, therefore increasing compliance and tolerance of the amputee to the socket and prostheses

The F-Socket™ system is available with the following hardware choices: Tethered.

F-Socket™ Pressure System Applications

  • Determine the proper fit of below the knee (BK) and above the knee (AK) sockets and prostheses
  • Determine contact area and dynamic stress analysis of the socket design
  • Assess the design and evaluate function of the socket
  • Examine the distribution of pressure during various phases of gait

F-Socket™ Software Features

  • Display 2D and 3D real-time and recorded data
  • Display contact area, average and peak pressures, and Center of Pressure and its trajectory
  • View data frame by frame
  • Side-by-side comparisons of pre- and post-treatment conditions
  • Measure distance between two points (anatomical landmarks or sites)
  • Isolate and analyze specific regions
  • Import and export subject movie files
