A fantastic socket is crucial for a successful prosthetic limb of any type. Our HCPC and BAPO registered clinicians are highly skilled and experienced in a range of specialist socket designs, including those with silicone and gel liners, and can come up with solutions for a range of issues including rubbing, volume fluctuation, neuromas and poor circulation.
We allow ourselves enough time in our appointments to talk through the issues that our patients have been experiencing, discuss what they would like to achieve with their new socket, prescribe an appropriate solution and take the perfect cast or scan. We also make sure to allow time during the fitting phase to make any minor adjustments so that the final socket is a perfect fit and exceeds expectations.
If you use a lower limb prosthesis, we are able to analyse your movement to properly scrutinise the alignment of your socket with our specialist gait analysis equipment. A perfect socket alignment can help to improve your gait pattern, so if you are suffering from back, knee or residual limb pain or have a knee or hip contracture or just feel that the way you’re walking could be improved then we may be able to provide a better solution for you.
A perfect socket is essential if you use any type of myoelectric prosthesis. If you have been experiencing problems controlling your limb, a new socket could help you. We can carry out tests to diagnose issues in your assessment and refit your socket if necessary.
We have a broad knowledge of the very latest and most innovative socket designs and usually manufacture our sockets using carbon fibre, which makes them incredibly light and low profile. We can print onto them with a variety of hydrographic images for children and adults to make them look exactly as you want.

We appreciate that even after the perfect fit has been achieved changes in body weight or, in the case of children, growth can mean that the fit of a socket is constantly affected. That’s why we work hard to make sure that we are there to help you when you need us.
