Support Group Educational Meeting Socketology
February 26 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Here is a great opportunity to get together with fellow amputees for an educational breakfast to re-connect and learn something new. We have joined with Amp’d up, F.A.S.T., MAAF, and the Amputee Connections of Redlands to host this event with SCP. It will be fun and educational along with seeing old and new friends. Socket-ology for Lower Extremity Amputees: Understanding various socket designs, features, advantages, and disadvantages. This presentation will give you an overview of the many different types of lower extremity prosthetic sockets and why the different types are used on different amputees. It will also include helpful information about the various types of suspension systems. You will also learn when it’s time to reach out to your prosthetist for skin issues or pain, and various things you can do at home to stay comfortable in your socket.
