A mechanical interface connecting a biological body segment, such as a limb, portion of a
limb or other body segment, to a wearable device such as a prosthetic, orthotic or
exoskeletal device, is fabricated by quantitatively mapping a characterized representation of
the body segment to form a digital representation of the mechanical interface shape and
mechanical interface impedance. The mechanical interface includes a continuous socket
defining a contoured inside surface and a contoured outside surface, and includes a ...
