Title: PROSTHETIC LIMB SOCKET WITH VARIABLE HARDNESS
Abstract:
A system and method for producing a customized prosthetic socket based on a digital representation of a residual limb that is used to form a digital model of a prosthetic socket. The digital model is customized to alter its internal structure to produce differing areas of flexibility and support while maintaining the overall geometry of the model and without having to use different materials. The digital model is converted for use with a three- dimensional printing or manufacturing device and then used to print the customized socket.
