Design of manikin for testing of residual-limb shape-capture method: Technical note

Anthony McGarry, PhD, et al.


Skeleton of manikin with ???muscle??? attached.

To create a prosthetic socket, the residual limb shape has traditionally been captured with plaster of Paris. This shape can now be captured with the use of computer- aided design systems. Systems must be tested to determine the best method for improved prosthetic socket fit. Testing on real patients is difficult because measurements must be taken in the same position each time and because residual limb volume is not stable. Systems may be tested on manikins that simulate the properties of the residual limb. This study reports on a method to produce a manikin of a transtibial residual limb.
