Limitless Socket designed to help amputees heal

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Usually months elapse between below-knee amputation surgery and the time that the patient is able to be up and moving about on a prosthesis or artificial leg.

But a device designed by a team of University of New Mexico students promises to significantly reduce that time and enhance the healing process.

Called the Limitless Socket, it is intended to fit on the end of an amputated limb and be connected to a prosthesis, an artificial leg or foot.
