The CJ Socket Solution
In 2014 she was fit with a CJ Socket to address her limb volume issues and she has enjoyed great success maintaining a proper socket fit and improved control of the prosthesis.
Since the CJ socket uses cloth rather than hard plastic over its posterior section, Mary also reported remarkable improvements in her overall comfort, sitting comfort and flexibility. She noted her pelvis was more level in sitting and she sat straighter.
She also enjoyed being able to rub or scratch her posterior thigh while wearing the CJ Socket and felt less disconnected to her residual limb.
The anterior brim remains more closely approximated to the inguinal ligament and Mary has found it easier to bend over to pick objects off the ground or tie her shoe.
