Using 3D Printable Density-Graded Lattice Structures to Minimize Risk of Tissue Damage from Compression-Release Stabilized Sockets

Designing safe and effective upper limb prosthetic sockets requires knowledge of the complex interplay between a person’s individual anatomical features and their interface with a prosthetic device. If not fitted correctly, damage can occur within the soft tissue of a person’s residual limb. In this research, we consider a novel strategy to minimize the risk of soft tissue damage in a modified prosthetic socket design.
