A finite element model of Syme’s socket was built to investigate the influences of parameters alterations on the weight of socket and stiffness to weight ratio under general loading. For the prosthetic studies, it is known that the weight of the socket is one of the important features to consider during the assessment of the Syme’s prosthesis. To achieve this aim, four materials have been used in the parametric analysis by SOLIDWORKS® program; these materials were the proposed laminate, Polypropylene (PP), Polylactic acid (PLA) and Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) with varying the socket thickness for the last three materials. The obtained results proved the effectiveness of the proposed material among the four materials with regard to stiffness to weight ratio in despite of the change of thickness for the other materials.

Keywords: Parametric study, stiffness to weight ratio, Syme’s socket
