Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A prosthetic alignment device (100) suitable for use in aligning and securing together parts of a prosthesis having a socket portion and a prosthetic member portion comprises a prosthetic member support (102) , a prosthetic socket support (104) , and an adjusting assembly (106) adapted to be coupled between the member and socket supports. The device permits the prosthetic member to be translated and tilted relative to the socket portion to achieve the necessary- alignment. Once the correct alignment is obtained, this may be retained by the adjusting assembly such that the alignment device may remain in situ.
