Dual Thickness Sock (courtesy of Medalin)
‘Medalin Dual Thickness Socks are for use with a below knee prosthesis. The sock is half terry fabric and half plain fabric, with two variants: upper portion terry / lower portion plain fabric and upper portion plain / lower portion terry fabric. This useful addition to the Prosthetist’s arsenal is especially good for packing out parts of a socket.
This may have been done previously with two socks or pieces of fabric (cut socks) to do the same job, this is a much neater solution and has the benefit of not rucking in the socket causing discomfort’.
Many other types and sizes of prosthetic sock to suit most situations are also made.
Iceross® Clean and Simple (courtesy of Össur)
‘For users of silicone liners daily cleaning of the residual limb is essential. We recommend use of a mild liquid soap, such as Iceross Clean and Simple soap. This product is specially pH balanced and 100% fragrance- and dye-free.
If dry skin is noted, apply Iceross Clean and Simple Moisturising Lotion to nourish and soften the skin. All Iceross lotions are pH balanced, 100% fragrance- and dye-free and will not leave an oily residue’.
A lubricant spray to help don silicone liners without fabric covers is also available.
