Abstract

The research of existing and the development of new trans-tibial socket concepts are on the agenda of most researchers and clinicians in this field. However, the understanding of the mechanisms contributing to a 'good fit' concept is hampered by the complexity of soft tissue behaviour as the load transferring medium within the socket. There is also a lack of consensus on the description of a good fit. There is no doubt that advances in relation to fitting techniques have been made, but to what extent those advances contribute to enhanced quality of fit is uncertain.
