Prosthesis management of residual-limb perspiration with subatmospheric vacuum pressure

Glenn K. Klute, PhD, et al.

Sweat can pool in the bottom of lower-limb prostheses when the users are out in hot weather or performing vigorous activities. When this happens, the prosthesis may become loose and insecure. We demonstrate the use of a novel prosthesis that can expel sweat but otherwise works like a currently available prosthesis.
