Waiting on a prosthetist...

August 1, 2017

The test sockets are all complete and headed to the prosthetics department to make them definitive sockets!  Lesson of the day today, spend some time in your sockets before modifying for small aches and pains. Running is definitely different from walking so the running socket can feel MUCH different when you are walking as compared to when you are running. Also, remember that limbs change shape FAST when they start to sweat and running for the first time in years will certainly make you sweat!  Learn to keep socks with you when you run so you can add them to your residual limb as the volume decreases with activity. Tomorrow we train in typical legs while the prosthetics team finishes the running legs. Training in walking limbs only improves the quality of running in running limbs. Watch out Friday, here we come!!! 😎
