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.

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.

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.
