Medial-lateral digital fluoroscopy (Dynamic Motion X-ray system, VF-Works, Inc, Palm Harbor, FL) of the residual limb
within the socket was recorded before and after level walking on a treadmill for 10 minutes at a standardized speed based on leg length.
Taken together, these studies suggest that the association between pain and depression might be weaker in PLP than in other chronic pain conditions, including residual limb
Antibiotics are administered prophylactically, and daily dressing changes to the residual limb
are performed using aseptic technique, with type of dressing determined by physician order (Ertl, 2016; Gulanick & Myers, 2014; Virani et al., 2015).
* It protects the residual limb
and appropriately transmit the forces associated with standing and ambulation.
The hardware construction of adaptive foot prostheses can be classified into several categories which are classified upon actuation method, DoF, and types of actuators, based on power transmission method, energy regeneration method, and attaching method to the residual limb
or transtibial prosthesis and so forth.
Webber and Davis incorporated a helical channel in the socket wall to cool the residual limb
"It works from electrodes which are positioned on the surface of his skin within the socket of his prosthesis, so this is the custom-made part which is fitted on to his residual limb
. When he tenses those muscles, the electrodes open and close the hand.
At the centre, artificial limbs are made by prosthetists, who start the process by measuring or casting a patient's residual limb
This highly advanced prosthetics uses the existing muscles in Salwa's residual limb
to control its functions, even the fingers.
Petersburg, Fla., in 1994 and quickly became an international industry leader in designing and manufacturing prosthetic liners, the gel suspension and cushioning interface between a prosthesis and the residual limb

Finite element modeling of the contact interface between trans-tibial residual limb
and prosthetic socket.
* Tiny sensors the size of a grain of rice are implanted into the residual limb
of an amputee, targeting the very muscles that would control movement
