Adjustable prosthetics are the future direction for prosthetic technology. Patients are seeking out ways to adjust their prosthetic when their limb changes and prosthetists are taking note of this demand. Many patients report their limb goes through changes during the day and being unable to adjust can lead to skin irritation or even tripping and falling.
Persons with recent amputation will experience drastic changes in their limb volume over the first year. Using socks is one way to fill in the missing volume, however too many socks can reduce total contact and therefore a proper fit. iFIT's patented buckle system allows the wearer to adjust their socket whenever and wherever they are. All sockets are further modifiable by the prosthetist so they can accommodate even large changes in volume.
