Direct Prosthetic Socket System

Experience enhanced comfort, straightforward hygiene, and maximum freedom of movement with a direct socket prosthetic.

Prosthetic Socket

Prosthetic Socket Solution for Maximum Comfort and Mobility

From start to finish, PrimeCare’s direct socket prosthetic can be fabricated and fitted in two hours to fit transtibial patients.

Flexible and highly contoured, these lightweight prosthetic socket types reduce pressure on limb tissues, improve circulation, and enable amputees to do more with less energy expenditure. A custom prosthetic socket is the most critical part of a prosthetic device because it distributes the wearer’s weight, enabling comfortable movement.

Our Above & Below Knee Prosthetic Socket Technology

The majority of prosthetic leg socket failures can be attributed to residual limb changes and socket rigidity.
Our Above & Below Knee Prosthetic Socket Technology
Prosthetic socket types with a poor fit and subpar biomechanics reduce control, leading to negative rehabilitation outcomes. Because the socket is the interface between the device and residual limb, it must be well-fitted and comfortable to ensure successful rehabilitation. At PrimeCare, each patient is fitted with a custom prosthetic socket that accommodates muscle growth, vascular areas, and bones. Our carbon fiber prosthetic socket solutions are designed to optimally distribute pressure when shaping soft tissue during casting, improving comfort, mobility, and ultimately, quality of life.

Our Process

  • Step 1: Measurements

    The process of making a socket prosthetic for a leg begins with capturing the shape of the residual limb and relevant body segments measurement once the residual limb is no longer swollen and completely healed.

  • Step 2: Prosthetic Socket Fabrication

    Multiple layers of composite fabric are placed over the residual limb and casting liners. These are covered inside and out by silicone sheathing. A two-part resin is injected into the prosthetic socket material, which sets and becomes a lightweight socket.

  • Step 3: Prosthetic Socket Fitting and Adjustment

    After trim lines are established and components bolted into place, the prosthetic is fitted with a seal-in liner, so our specialists can optimize a patient’s static and dynamic alignment to achieve optimal gait.

Patient had to undergo a below the knee amputation of right leg to save his life. The use of his current prosthesis, which was fabricated using Ossur Prosthetics direct socket system, makes the patient feel, “like this prosthesis is part of my body and I have more control of my prosthesis.” Patient was able to get back to living a very active lifestyle thanks to the proper goal setting, latest technology and fitting techniques available from Primecare.

FAQ

  • How much does a prosthetic socket cost?

    The cost of a prosthetic socket depends on a patient’s needs and the prosthetic components required to achieve enhanced mobility. If you book a free consultation, we’ll assess your residual limb and lifestyle needs and provide a rough estimate.

  • How long does a prosthetic socket last?

    Most prosthetic limbs are built to withstand only three to five years of wear and tear and need to be replaced over the course of a lifetime. While they’re not a one-time cost, health insurance may cover some or all of the cost, depending on a patient’s healthcare plan.
