Advanced sensor-based design and development of wearable prosthetic socket for amputees

Project description

More comfortable and personalised prosthetics

An estimated 215 000 amputation surgeries are conducted each year in Europe. There are also some 2.4 million amputees who depend daily on the quality of prosthetics. Since 90 % of these cases concern lower limbs, one major issue has to do with the quality of the prosthetic leg sockets. In this context, the EU-funded SocketSense project aims to make improvements. It will develop wearable sensors (based on patented Quantum Technology Supersensors™ materials) that can be placed inside the socket to collect real-time data about anatomical changes in residual limb and socket performance. This will pave the way for new personalised sockets, modelled exactly according to the user’s needs and convenience.
