The suspension method is the way in which the prosthesis is connected to your body and there are many options depending on residual limb type and patient preference. Suspension is a very important part of the prosthesis as it is how the patient interacts with the prosthesis, if the suspension method doesn’t feel right then a patient will be less likely to wear a prosthesis. Thus, an evaluation is done to determine which method will theoretically be the best for the patient, but ultimately it is up to the patient to find what feels most natural to them. Many things need to be considered when deciding on a suspension method, such as activity level and age. The prosthesis and suspension method should be able to adapt to the patient’s daily and leisure activities.
