Versatile SocketCone Available
August 01, 2007
The SocketConeTM, a quickly cast and fabricated socket available through Chesapeake Medical Products Inc., can be modified and fitted in an hour. Made from a low-temperature (160 degrees F) thermoplastic reinforced with Kevlar, the SocketCone requires only one patient visit and never needs plaster. The SocketCone makes an excellent IPOP and can be used as a temporary prosthesis, a dynamic test socket, as a shower/swim leg, or as a spare prosthesis. Cost effective and perfect for use in developing countries, the SocketCone can be reheated and remolded as many times as needed.
