Seeing Miyah happy and living an active lifestyle in her LIM socket is what inspires our team to keep innovating. At three years old, she’s already overcome more adversity than most and we’re excited to see her grow up with the chance to do whatever she puts her mind to. Miyah and her prosthetist, Brent at Eastpoint Prosthetics and Orthotics, are  helping spur an evolution from the outdated and outsized medical devices currently used with children to a brand new era of pint-sized versions tailored for kids’s needs. We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of that.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Improvise isn’t a word parents want to hear from their kid’s doctor. Yet pediatric specialists too often have to jury-rig care because many of the medical devices needed to treat sick children were built for adults.

A birth defect left Miyah Williams with one leg missing at mid-thigh. The prosthetic leg she received as a toddler came with such a painful, sweat- and sore-inducing socket; a rigid cup connecting the leg to her thigh that she refused to wear it. Part of the problem is size. Now families are starting to demand solutions to address the issue and rightly so.

Sockets have traditionally been like wooden clogs — made by hand, out of a single material, and ultimately rather unforgiving to wear. Now, a radical new socket  is giving amputees some control over a crucial part of their everyday lives. LIM’s creation, the Infinite Socket, is a complete rethinking of a crucial prosthetic component, bringing modern technology and thoughtful design to bear on a long-ignored pain point. Where traditional sockets are good for maybe an hour of comfortable walking, an early tester of LIM’s said he walked eight miles around hilly San Francisco on his first day with the prototype.

SAN FRANCISCO PROSTHETIC Orthotic Service, located just around the corner from the Painted Ladies, is a fairly standard prosthetics shop. There’s a receptionist or two in front, with some small rooms behind them where people get fit with prosthetics. Past the rooms, beyond an unmarked door, there’s a workshop where prosthetic parts are made. Here, tools hang on the walls above ovens and lathes, and everything seems to be covered in a fine coating of white plaster dust.

Andrew Seelhoff Testimonial

Andrew Seelhoff invites Lim on a beach stroll to share his story of how after undergoing amputation to reignite his life, he was faced with a life partnered with a “bucket” as a prosthetic socket. After much research, Andrew was fitted with the Infinite Socket and talks about the differences between this and the “bucket” he was faced with.
