Making a well fitting prosthesis is not an easy job. Especially to make the socket, the part that connects the prosthesis to the limb. This is why LegBank developed the Majicast. The working principle behind the Majicast is hydrostatic pressure. This means that water pressure is used for modeling the casting material, by deforming the soft tissue of the residual limb under a uniform load. This results in a corrected soft tissue displacement that allows capturing an accurate impression of the volume and bone structures of the residual limb for creating and fitting total surface bearing (TSB) sockets. Using a standardized, easily documented procedure, the Majicast is proven to provide accurate and consistent results, making it possible to eliminate the need for modification of the resultant positive mold, reducing prosthesis delivery times and socket manufacturing costs.
Prosthetic sockets produced as a result of the Majicast process have increased user comfort, stability and fit; achieved by reduced shear and friction at the socket/residual limb interface which leads to improved control of the prosthesis and increased patient satisfaction.
