AB - ObjectiveTo determine amputees’ and rehabilitation clinicians’ perspectives on the impact of socket fit and issues caused by ill-fitting sockets throughout lower limb prosthetic rehabilitation.DesignA survey was developed to identify rehabilitation factors and issues for prosthesis wearers and rehabilitation clinicians. Participants opted to participate in a further telephone interview.SettingOnline and across the United Kingdom.ParticipantsLower limb prosthetic wearers and clinicians that are part of a lower limb prosthetic rehabilitation team.InterventionsNot applicable.Main Outcome Measure(s)A survey and an interview to measure the perceived impact of socket fit on lower limb rehabilitation.Results48.0% of amputees and 65.7% of clinicians identified socket fit related issues as the biggest factor impacting rehabilitation. Amputee interviewees focused on the impact of fit on quality of life and the ability to complete daily tasks, whilst clinicians focused on the lack of widespread ability to adjust the socket and gait re-education.ConclusionsSocket fit has a large impact on and is a large source of frustration to amputees and their clinical teams throughout rehabilitation. From the interviews, it became clear that the interpretation of socket fit is different for each person; thus “socket fit” does not mean the same for all.
