Here is the step by step approach you will want to take when casting your patients for the EMS Socket System.
When is a patient ready for an EMS Socket System?
- Limb size is not changing / less volume changes
- Understand how to take care of their limb and prosthesis
- Patient has been in an elevated vacuum for 1-3 months (Post Pin System)
Can I just send you a test socket for you to create a mold from?

Why Trust The EMS Socket System?
Other socket systems are non-dynamic, meaning they are unable to accommodate volume changes that will occur naturally throughout the day. As they all utilize both compression and pressure to maintain connection to hold the prosthetic in place, volume changes are increased.
The EMS avoids that by using friction in combination with flexible load distribution. This allows the patient to maintain volume. Combined with its other features, the EMS allows amputees a more consistent, comfortable, confident connection.
With an inferior system, something as simple as sitting can be uncomfortable for an amputee. The balancing of fluid changes within tissue, moisture accumulation around the skin, while accommodating for muscle movement, the EMS can provide freedoms that other systems may not be able to.
