The Knit-Rite 4-Way Stretch Shrinker is a truly incredible shrinker for above knee amputees. The 4-Way Stretch AK Shrinker features stretchy polyester/Lycra core-spun yarns providing multidirectional stretch for a shrinker that creates less discomfort when applying. Silicone beads along the inside top will keep your shrinker in place, especially at while you're sleeping. Knit-Rite has been manufacturing prosthetic textiles since the 1920s and they know how to engineer a quality shrinker.


82% Polyester, 18% Spandex

Directions for Use

It is highly recommended that you consult with your prosthetic professional for proper guidelines on the application of this Knit-rite shrinker and report any changes in the fit or the condition of your limb. Changes in your limb may occur over time and it may be necessary to take new measurements for a new AK shrinker. Do not wear the shrinker while your prosthesis is in use.

  1. Turn the 4-Way Stretch AK Shrinker inside out halfway.
  2. The Knit-Rite shrinker will be folded over itself. Use both hands to pull the shrinker over your residual limb.  At this point, half of your residual limb should inside the shrinker.
  3. Turn the shrinker back to being right side out, pulling it evenly over your residual limb.
  4. Adjust for final placement and smooth out any crease using the palm of your hand in a gradual upwards motion.

Note: Do not pull the shrinker onto the limb by grasping the top edge only.

Care Instructions

Do not dry clean. Wash in a laundry bag. Machine wash Warm. Do not Bleach. Tumble Dry. Do not iron.


If any issues or changes of your limb or skin develop, discontinue use and consult with your Prosthetist.
