The new EMS or Environmentally Managed Socket system is the next step in elevated vacuum systems. With a semi rigid inner socket and a rigid outer socket along with other unique features he has developed a system that patient's are saying truly does feel attached to them. Proprioception and control are all increased and our patient's find themselves having the ability to wear the prosthesis for longer all while being more comfortable. A "rough" inner socket grips the residual limb while increasing surface area by 400%. Due to the flexible inner socket and ultra low trim lines on the outer socket sleeves are lasting much longer and bending ability is much greater.
O'Connor Orthopedics & Prosthetics is now fitting patient's with the system and we would love to evaluate or speak with any patient interested in using this technology.
