Abstract

The transfemoral socket is the interface between the patient's residual limb and the remaining prosthesis. Whether the patient uses a technologically advanced knee mechanism and foot or a single axis, constant friction knee and solid ankle cushioned heel, no other prosthetic component is as crucial in assuring a comfortable and well-functioning prosthesis as the socket. This article discusses the rationale of quadrilateral and ischial containment socket designs and reviews suspension options.
