Abstract: INTRODUCTION The most important aspect of a lower extremity prosthesis is the socket. The socket is the interface between the human and the mechanical support system1. There are different methods for producing prosthetic sockets. The traditional method requires a skilled prosthetist and is time consuming 2, 3. Using 3D printing technology for manufacturing prosthetic sockets promises to speed up the fabrication process and reduce materials and time cost significantly. 3D Printed prosthetic sockets have to potential to increase socket strength and durability. This paper investigates the effect of material choices and printing process parameters on the mechanical strength of 3D printed trans-tibial sockets.
