Title: ADJUSTABLE SOCKET SYSTEM
Abstract:
An adjustable socket system (100) includes a plurality of shell components (106) and longitudinal supports (104) connected to a base (102) and is movable between an open configuration to loosen the fit of the adjustable socket system (100), and a closed configuration to secure the fit of the adjustable socket system (100) on residual limb received therein. A tightening system (114) includes a tensioning unit (118) having a handle (132) defining a moment arm rotatable about a rotation axis (134), and a tensioning element (120) operatively coupled to the handle (132) via a movable connection point (138) and to the shell components (106) via a control point (136). Rotation of the handle (132) displaces the movable connection point (138) and the tensioning element (120) relative to the control point (136) to move the adjustable socket system to the closed configuration.
