The most limiting factor in being an amputee has to do with the socket.  It’s hot.  It’s painful.  It’s time consuming to take on and off and very (veryemotionally draining and stressful when you need to have a new one made.  You put on weight – you need a new socket.  You take off weight – you need a new socket.  It just plain sucks.  Enter osseointegration…  when you wake up in the morning, instead of taking several minutes to salve and spray, put on the liner, step into the socket… take it off and step into it again because the alignment isn’t right… take it off and step into it again because the alignment isn’t right… take it off and step… well you get the picture…  just attach your prosthetic knee to the end of your implant and BOOM! that’s it.  Seconds.  And there’s no more bruises, calluses, sores.
