“…The area that is then used to achieve VAS is also used to achieve the connection to the socket through the reflective sealing component (Figure 2). In a sample of people with transtibial amputation, Klute et al observed a reduction in pistoning from 6 mm with pin suspension to 1 mm with VAS [10]. They concluded that VAS could result in a superior fitting socket because it minimizes pistoning.…”

“…The benefits of dynamic VAS may provide the person with amputation with improved socket pressure distribution, daily volume management, rotational control, musculoskeletal stability, and reduced socket movement [9][10][12][13]. If VAS does favorably affect these variables for the TFA, then the IRC brim's purpose may be biomechanically diminished.…”
