Abstract

Provide a lower than ambient, cool air to breathable moldable material where the stump contacts the prostheses. This cool air is achieved by blowing ambient air over a heat sink that is cooled by an attached thermoelectric device. This combination will provide a lower than ambient air temperature to a porous, moldable, breathable material (such as polypropylene) that can be inserted into the prostheses device.
