I am working with a wrist disarticulation myo-electric fitting and have used Ottobock silicone liners for this in the past. These liners are durable and high quality but can be very expensive, especially if funding is a concern. This fitting is challenging and I would like to have the ability to experiment with a few different liner configurations prior to going all the way. Does anyone have experience or recommendations as far as using high-durometer injection molded silicone (Smooth-On ?) for making such a liner? What durometer works best? Do you use reinforcing stockinette? Is this a durable option or just suitable as a test liner? How have you connected or adhered this liner to the rigid socket?
