Explanation: Hi Karin,
without more context it is hard to tell. If we are talking about pts. after amputation (above or below knee) then the socket refers to the upper part of the prosthesis which fits over the stump. If we are talking about orthopedic surgery then socket could only be Hüftpfanne since neither knee nor ankle, let alone the metatarsals or toes, have a socket. "Orthopedic appliances and devices" refers to something you would get in a "Sanitätshaus", so Beinprothesenschalen it is.
