As many of you know, this past year EastPoint became the first clinical partner with LIM Innovations, out of San Francisco, California. In September of 2014, LIM released a revolutionary new socket design, a game-changer in the prosthetic world, the Infinite Socket. The Infinite Socket is the first of its kind to offer a completely customized fit so patients can make their own adjustments as often they choose.
After we found success with several adult patients in this new socket, we strongly urged LIM to continue their developing and release a pediatric version. We are thrilled to announce that they not only honored our request, but they also decided to use one of our sweet kiddos, Miyah as the face behind this new pediatric socket. Miyah loves the LIM Infinite Socket, and her Mom loves the ability to customize the fit on their own, at any time.
Offering this kind of personalized fit for pediatric amputees is a huge step forward for the field of prosthetics. We are so proud of Miyah and her success, and we are thankful to continue being a part of her journey.

EastPoint is excited to join in a clinical partnership with LIM Innovations, allowing our patients access to the newly released Infinite Socket™. This socket design encompasses versatility and customized comfort for a fine-tuned fit that is patient specific. The advanced design of the Infinite Socket™ allows patients increased comfort and function that they can adjust on their own.
While LIM Innovations may eventually release additional options, the Infinite Socket™ is designed for transfemoral amputations. The unique characteristics of this socket include a micro-tensioning system, a soft and adjustable brim, a flexible distal inner liner, a telescoping ischial seat, formable thermoplastic carbon-fiber struts and an adjustable base.
The success of this socket has been outstanding! It has truly revolutionized the lives of the patients who tried it. We are looking forward to seeing even more positive outcomes in the future.
