Photo: Electrodes with a sticky backing [24/07/2013] Many people who use prostheses experience pain on a daily basis where their skin meets the socket. Engineers aim to ease this discomfort with research that could help build better sockets. They have developed a device that tracks how much a person's limb swells and shrinks when inside a prosthetic socket.Pain of Artificial Legs Could Be Eased by Real-Time Monitoring - Read more
