Who should wear a Stump Shrinker?

Posted by Bryan Potok on

New amputees experience the most benefit from wearing a stump shrinker.  They assist in limb maturation and preparation for their first prosthetic limb fitting.  If worn regularly, a shrinker can reduce discomfort and phantom limb sensation.

Experienced amputees typically wear a shrinker only at night, primarily to maintain a constant volume.  Many people continue wearing a stump shrinker to improve comfort, lessen phantom pain and improve circulation.  Those that are experiencing diabetes should definitely consider wearing a shrinker nightly after limb maturation is complete.
