Abstract: PURPOSE The socket is the main component of a prosthesis which surrounds the residual limb and transfers loads and motions between the residual limb and prosthesis. A misfit socket may lead to excessive stresses on the residual limb, pistoning of the prosthesis during walking, patient discomfort, pain, and skin damage. The quality of socket-skin interface directly affects quality of life, prosthesis use, and satisfaction from prosthesis in amputees. Pain is a devastating condition that prohibits prosthesis use1-4. The present study aimed to evaluate pain threshold and tolerance of the transtibial residual limb to improve its socket design and fit.
