Definition: Creation of a residual limb positive model. This does not involve patient contact.
|1||Negative model rectification||Adjustment of negative model to optimize biomechanical joint position, force distribution and alignment to achieve patient treatment goals.|
|2||Negative model preparation and filling||Preparation to negative model or existing socket prior to creating a positive model. This may include adjusting negative model, sealing and extending cast, applying separator, mixing plaster/geltrate, positioning mandrel, filling, stripping and marking positive model.|
|3||Digitally generated positive model||Transferring digital information from CAD, laser scanning, or digital photography to create a positive model.
