We know that a comfortable prosthetic socket is absolutely crucial to the success of your prosthetic solution, and are committed to staying at the forefront of technology to make sure that is possible.
State-of-the-art 3D scanners are used throughout Ability Matters clinics, which help us to guarantee your comfort. Scanning – as opposed to the traditional plaster cast method – enables our clinicians to accurately capture the shape of your residual limb in a quick, clean, and safe process. The captured shape can be digitally manipulated as required, and can be stored for future treatment. All of our clients are supplied with a ‘check socket’ to test whether the fit is suitable and comfortable, and alterations can be made prior to producing the final socket.
