Maintaining Limb Volume: Effects of Doffing Between Periods of Activity
Katheryn Allyn, CPO
An increase or decrease in volume may change prosthetic fit and
influence comfort, stability, and activity. Though periodic doffing is
suggested clinically to patients as a means to counter volume change, it
is unknown if residual limbs return back to their pre-doff volumes once
the prosthesis is donned and activity resumed. The purpose of this
research was to evaluate the effect on limb fluid volume of a doffing
period in between periods of activity.
Kate Allyn, CPO, is an ABC-certified and Washington State licensed
orthotist and prosthetist who has been a practitioner since 1992. She
began her research prosthetist role in 2002 with Prosthetics Research
Study in Seattle, WA. In 2006, she started working with the Sanders'
Prosthetic Bioengineering Laboratory at the University of Washington in
Seattle. Allyn believes it is important to effectively translate
research findings in a clinically interesting and meaningful way with a
focus on improving the quality of care prosthetists deliver and
increasing the efficiency of their clinical practice.
