AK socket roatation issues

Stan Vydrzal

I have an active 50 year old patient that I made an AK prosthesis for. He plays golf and rides a bike. When claims when he is active and sweats his socket internally rotates. I have deepened the socket slightly and decreased the tensions because I though maybe it was shallow or too tight.
Not sure the depth was an issue but it was a little tight. His tissue is firm. I thought it was tight and not letting his muscles fire. All the measurements seem good now but he still has the problem. The new socket is without proflex and he uses pure suction. Myself nor the guys I work with have come up with a good solution.
