The lower leg stump is not a stable volume. Volume changes during the day between -10% and +5% may occur and these are caused by fluid movements in the stump. These volume changes can mess up a good fitting prosthetic socket and this can lead to pain and injuries. A new invention called “Unimode Beams” solves this issue by placing over 100 beams...
