It is critical to have a good fit between the residual limb and the socket. A socket that fits well provides comfort for a residual limb, can prevent injury to the limb, and prevent excessive vertical movement between the socket and limb. The test socket is the first socket a prosthetist creates. A prosthetist evaluates and can adjust the check socket before proceeding to a definitive socket.
