Comfort and confidence are important factors in prosthetic rehabilitation

Socket fit and comfort are a priority for amputees. The goal of socket fit is to have a socket so comfortable that the user does not need to consciously think about it. It should so fit well and intimately so that body movements are efficiently transferred without skin problems. In this way the amputee can move with confidence.
