Amputee Essentials Alliance Diamond Sleeve is a neoprene reinforced prosthetic sleeve intended for below-knee prosthesis users and is compatible with suction and shuttle lock suspension systems. Diamond Sleeve offers an airtight suction fit for those moderate-to-highly active amputees.

The Diamond Sleeve is not your average neoprene suspension sleeve for amputees and is constructed with abrasion resistant fabric.  The outer fabric covering not only withstands wear, but also offers increased tearing and bursting strength.  The included sleeve saver reduces wear and tear from sharp prosthetic trimelines and the sleeve's seams are glued and stitched for extra durability. Expect durable and reliable performance from your Diamond Sleeve.

Amputee Essentials constructed this suspension sleeve with a pre-flexed shape, enhancing suspension by preventing knee bunching in the back and folding of the neoprene that typically occurs. This pre-flexed posture allows for better suction suspension because the multi-direction neoprene will move with you and not separate from your thigh. The Alliance Diamond Sleeve was thoughtfully created without seams over your kneecap to provide greater comfort and less skin irritation.

Directions

  1. Apply the included sleeve saver over the top of your prosthetic socket; tension band end down.
  2. Beginning with the bottom, turn your sleeve inside out halfway. Maintain front-to-back orientation.
  3. Align the front of your sleeve over the top of the socket; begin stretching your sleeve over the socket brim and sleeve saver.
  4. Fold the lower half of your sleeve right side out over the socket. Roll top of sleeve down and apply prosthesis.

Care Instructions

Hand wash your Diamond Sleeve and sleeve saver using mild pH-balanced soap and cold water. Rinse thoroughly. Pat off excess water and allow to completely air dry. Do not use excessive heat, solvents, or chlorine bleach. Store in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight.

Precautions

The rubber material may cause skin irritation. Prosthetic users with known susceptibility to dermatitis or with broken skin should avoid use. Discontinue use and consult your physician if skin irritation develops. Exposure to excess heat can damage your sleeve's ability to maintain suction.
