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.
