Smart Socket Promises Pain Relief for Below-Knee Amputees

A team of Canadian scientists has unveiled a new type of prosthetic socket that's designed to improve fit and reduce pain in below-knee amputees. Similar to the AI-enabled smart liner developed by the London-based startup Unhindr, the Canadian device uses microfluidic actuators that subtly adjust the socket fit in response to changes in pressure and residual-limb size.
