Slip-On Donning Aids from amputeestore.com
Waking up each morning and putting on your prosthesis sometimes requires a prosthetic aid to make things easier. Trying to apply a suction socket without a lubricant or donning sheath can be a daunting task. Employing a donning sheath--sometimes referred to as a parachute bag or nylon pull sock-- will make it easier to "draw-in" any extra skin along the top of your prosthetic socket brim. Many prosthetic liners, especially those used with vacuum systems, do not have a outer fabric covering and require a cream or lubricant spray to avoid frustration. Amputee Store carries a range of prosthetic donning slip-on aids, ranging from liquid powder to quality donning sheaths from Knit-Rite and Arion.
