10 Questions

Soft tissues of the stump within the socket are subjected to a special environment due to external load characteristics that affect tissue breakdown.

True

The skin rubbing against the socket edge and interior surface does not result in intermittent skin deformation and biomechanical irritations.

False

Excessive slip between the skin and the socket does not lead to tissue abrasion and heat generation.

False

Residual limb tissues do not exist often in a high-humidity environment due to the socket intimately fitted on the residuum.

False

Residual limb tissues may not suffer from possible chemical and mechanical irritations or allergic reactions to various sockets or interface materials.

True

Tissue deformation is a response to mechanical loading?

True

Ischemia can lead to the formation of pressure sores?

True

Repetitive force application does not contribute to tissue damage?

False

Pain is the most direct reaction of the human body to excessive external loads?

True

Neuropathy does not affect the sensory feedback related to mechanical insult?

False

Explore the responses of soft tissues to mechanical loading in prosthetic applications, including types of tissue harm, external load characteristics, and physical conditions at the interface. Understand the factors affecting tissue breakdown and the pressure-tolerant & sensitive areas.
