About the Event

Join Southern California Prosthetics along with a unique gathering of highly qualified professionals, Amp'd On Life, Amp'd Up, and FAST, as this group of accomplished amputee advocacies explore the diversity in prosthetic socket designs and features and discuss their advantages and disadvantages.

Attending this event will give you an overview of the many different lower extremity prosthetic sockets and why specific sockets are designed for certain amputees. You'll also learn helpful details about the various types of suspension systems and when it's time to reach out to your prosthetist for skincare and pain issues, along with knowledge on what you can do at home to stay comfortable in your socket. There will be open discussions and time for questions, catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones! We hope you will join us.

Feel free to bring another amputee friend or someone to help you if you need help!
