My prosthetist has given me a couple of distal cups over the years (thinnish, worn on the bottom of the BKA stump to help cushion between stump and socket). Recently, I developed a sore on the 'point' of the stump, and needed extra padding. He couldn't provide anything, until I found an Ossur 8mm thick distal cup - far too thick, so I had to cut it down to 'cup' size to get in on at all under my liner. It works, to the extent of shielding my sore bit from getting too much rubbing, but I could do with a 4 or 5 mm thick version instead. Googling doesn't throw anything up. Anyone got any ideas for sourcing such a thing? Ta. Allen.
