ProsFit is driving a paradigm shift in how prosthetic sockets are specified, manufactured and fitted to amputees. It is applying available technologies and innovative supply chain approaches to transform socket making from slow “multi-local, artisanal, and empirical” fabrication (an “art”), to rapid “industrial, predictable, and globally scalable” manufacturing & logistics (a “science”).
This will enable the significantly growing numbers of amputees be kept mobile and integrated in society.
The adoption of ProsFit’s sockets will ease life for amputees and their families. The limb-fitting centres will also enjoy positive impacts, including cost-savings, with less stress in the healthcare system.
