dc.description.abstract The success of prosthetic rehabilitation involves a number of facets including optimum therapy, appropriate components, interdisciplinary network, patient motivation, and a good fitting socket. All of these facets get multiplied in severity when more than one ailment is presented in the patient. This case study will discuss the socket design principles and components that allow for vocational return for a hip disarticulation-shoulder disarticulation patient who is also blind. The design of the myoelectric shoulder disarticulation prosthesis had to be lightweight and provide as much feedback as possible to control the elbow, terminal device, and wrist rotator—as well as aid in balance while ambulating with a sight cane. en_US
