Accurate fitting of a lower-limb prosthetic socket is the most important factor affecting amputee satisfaction and rehabilitation. The technology is now available to allow real-time monitoring of in-service pressure distribution of prosthetic limbs. This paper proposes a remote interfacial pressure monitoring system necessary for the assessment of fit. The suitability of a wireless ZigBee network due to its relevant technical specification is investigated. The system enables remote monitoring of a prosthetic socket and its fit under different operating conditions thereby improving design, efficiency and effectiveness. The data can be used by prosthetists and may also be recorded for future training or for patient progress monitoring. This can minimize the number of iterations by getting it right first time, thereby minimizing the number of replacement prostheses.
