Abstract:

The objective of was to gather quantitative data on the materials commonly used to manufacture definitive composite sockets. The purpose was to make informed recommendations to guide socket fabrication. Materials were fabricated into both flat panels and sockets. Flat panels were tested according to ASTM test protocols. Sockets were tested according to the static testing described by the ISO standard for lower limb prostheses.
