How to measure alps clearline reinforced sleeve.

STEP 2: Find your size

Take your thigh circumference and use the chart to determine your size. If you're in-between sizes, we suggest remeasuring again to be on safe side.

SIZE CIRCUMFERENCE
X-Small 16 7 3/4 - 9 1/2 in. | (20 - 24 cm)
Small 20 9 3/4 - 11 3/4 in. | (25 - 30 cm)
Medium 24 12 - 13 1/4 in. | (31 - 34 cm)
Medium Plus 26 13 3/4 - 14 1/2 in. |  (35 - 37 cm)
Large 28 15 - 15 3/4in. | (38 - 40 cm)
X-Large 32 16 1/4 - 17 3/4 in. | (41 - 45 cm)
2X-Large 38 18 - 23 1/2 in. | (46 - 60 cm)

When measuring your thigh, pay special attention to how tight you take your measurement. It's best to pull the ends of your tape measure somewhat tight and then release. Your goal is to find a middle ground of how much tension you should apply to your measuring tape. Too tight and too loose will both result in a poorly fitting prosthetic sleeve.

Alps EasySleeve SFS Description

Alps Easy Sleeve Fabric Reinforced SFS is a gel prosthetic sleeve engineered for those below-the-knee amputees needing a sticky high adhesion prosthetic sleeve. Knee bending and overall leg movement is not inhibited by its very flexible fabric covering or proprietary GripGel. The Alps EasySleeve SFS will not roll down as a result of its high adhesion or create uncomfortable shear forces.  This Alps sleeve can be safely used with most vacuum and suction systems.  The Alps Easysleeve Fabric Reinforced SFS prosthetic sleeve can be used as an alternative or secondary means of suspension in conjunction with a prosthetic liner.  Adding a below-knee sleeve to a locking liner will add security to a pin suspension, without any loss of comfort or movement.

Suggested Use

achieve suspension through mild skin adhesion. The combination of EasyGel and an elastic outer fabric will allow you to fully bend your knee while at the movies when someone is trying to slide past your seat. This Alps below the knee prosthetic sleeve is an alternative to using a prosthetic liner with locking pin suspension or adds security to a pin suspension, without any loss of comfort. The Alps Clearline Reinforced Sleeve SFS is intended and designed for moderate-to-active amputees looking for a prosthetic sleeve that doesn't compress nor constrict your limb. The Alps EasySleeve SFS works great for those with hand dexterity issues, requiring a sleeve that is easy to apply and suspends your prosthesis with minimal effort.

How-To Install

Although it is not necessary to apply any type of lubricant to your residual limb you may use Resilience Ultra-Rich Prosthetic Moisturizer. Avoid petroleum jelly and other oil based lubricants, as they will damage your Alps EasySleeve SFS. Apply talcum powder to the inside of the  Alps EasySleeve. Invert the Alps EasySleeve so that the inside is facing out and roll the sleeve up onto your prosthetic socket. Place your residual limb inside the socket and roll the EasySleeve onto your thigh. Many Prosthetists would instruct below knee amputees to roll their sleeves on versus pulling on to prevent any skin from being pulled taught along your thigh.
