biodesigns socket ups walking distance

Westlake Village, CA-based biodesigns in November reported a recent 13-patient study showed its alternative transfemoral socket outperformed a standard-of-care socket in improving amputees’ balance confidence and walking capacity. The retrospective cohort study compared results from the Activity-Specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) and the two-minute walk test (2MWT) in transfemoral amputees aged 26 to 58 years (two women) who had first received an ischial/ramus containment (IRC) socket (worn for at least 30 days) followed by the biodesigns socket after rejection or failure of the IRC socket. Three patients functioned at the K4 activity level; all others functioned at the K3 level
