OBJECTIVE To determine the right moment for fitting the first prosthesis, it is necessary to know when the volume of the stump has stabilized. The aim of this study is to analyze variation in measurements of transtibial stump model volumes using the water immersion method, the Design TT system, the Omega Tracer system, circumferential measurements, and anthropometric measurements. DESIGN Nine stump models were measured on two occasions, each consisting of two sessions. In each session, two… CONTINUE READING
