Every prosthesis Leimkuehler, Inc. fabricates is specifically designed for each patient through the use of casts, measurements and working models.
There are 2 basic types of socket designs for the transfemoral amputee:
The Quadrilateral Socket where the patient bears weight on the ischial seat.
The Ischial Containment Socket designed with a narrower medial-lateral dimension.
There are many variations of each socket design and we custom fit the prosthesis for the optimal patient comfort and performance. There are also a variety of knee units, foot designs and suspension options customized to each patient’s needs.
