Vessl offers lower limb amputees an automatically adjusting prosthetic socket that connects them to their prosthetic leg. Most amputees experience limb volume changes daily, which means that the static socket they got measured for weeks, months or years ago never fits perfectly long-term. In addition, any misfit between the residual leg and socket leads to debilitating pain, and in 55% of cases, lower limb amputees abandon their prosthetic leg completely. Our solution automatically adjusts to changes in limb volume to maintain a snug fit, allowing amputees to avoid pressure sores and thus, walk around all day comfortably.
