Ischial Containment Socket

The Ischial containment socket fits intimately with the ischium, buttressing against the bone to achieve stability,(Krajbich, 2005) but also limiting hip motion (Fatone et al., 2021; Klotz et al., 2011; Rabuffetti et al., 2005) and contributing to socket discomfort. Comfort of the prosthesis while standing and sitting is of great importance to persons with lower limb amputation.
Ischial Containment has been shown to have better results especially related to better weight distribution, suspension, and better-coordinated transfer of weight to the distal parts. It is increasingly becoming inevitable that one has to acquire knowledge and skills in fabricating an Ischial Containment socket to elevate the quality of life of people with trans-femoral amputation.
