      I don’t personally fit the limbs, I’m more on the behind-the-scenes team to develop technologies to improve the limbs so they are more comfortable and fit better to prevent further injury to the amputees.
      The limbs attach to the amputee’s body using pressure so they will feel in when the limbs are put on and fitted. Not enough to hurt (hopefully) but enough to make sure it stays on.
