Bikini Socket

Martin Bionics has developed new technology on socket design for hip disarticulation prostheses. It is called the Bikini Sockets because of its low profile and lightweight design. This new socket allows patients to use iliac crest stabilizers instead of the typical bucket design used in current hip disarticulation prostheses. While this design may not be ideal for all patients, POSI believes our practioners should always be knowledgeable in new prosthetic designs and technology.
