How to measure for a AK Compressogrip stump shrinker.

STEP 2: Find your size

Take your circumference measurement 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 (in)
X-Small 12 - 17
Small 15 - 20
Medium 18 - 24
Large 24 - 32

When taking body measurements, you need to use the correct type of tape measure. You will want to use a soft cloth or flexible plastic  tape measure, similar to what a seamstress uses. Do not use a metal measuring tape, used in construction (your measurements will be inaccurate).  Pay special attention not to pull your measuring tape too tight.  Doing so will produce a measurement that is too small.

Knit-Rite Compressogrip AK Shrinker Description

The Knit-Rite Compressogrip A/K is a prosthetic shrinker specifically designed for above-the-knee amputees. Knit-Rite borrows the same patented advancements of the B/K Compressogrip shrinker and adds improvements such as circular knit construction, universal waist belt and multidirectional stretch. This Knit-Rite shrinker is constructed using X-Static fiber for odor management and antimicrobial. The Compressogrip fabric offers 25-30mmHg compression at 50% stretch, which is within limits for therapeutic benefits. The Knit-Rite A/K Compressogrip fits either left or right above knee (transfemoral) amputees.

Benefits

  • Compressogrip AK shrinker is more affordable and easier to apply than traditional AK shrinkers
  • Multidirectional stretch offers a better fitting prosthetic shrinker
  • Knit-Rite Compressogrip circular knit construction along with higher elastic power creates a heavier fabric
  • Incorporates X-Static for odor and antimicrobial feature
  • 25-30mmHg compression
  • Universal AK belt prevents your shrinker from rolling down especially during night time
  • Available in silver X-Static
  • Made in the USA
  • Sold individually in a sealed polybag

Features & Details

Knit-Rite Compressogrip AK Shrinker

89% (95% Polyester/5% X-Static blend), 11% Spandex, Latex Free

Directions for Use

Adjust your A/K Knit-Rite compressogrip for either a left or right amputation and then secure velcro stays. Apply to your residual limb. Fasten the universal belt, cutoff unused end and discard. Snug the plastic ring to the bottom of your residuum. Reflect the second layer over the first layer. Identify how far the second layer should extend to your groin and mark with a marker. Pull the second layer down, cut to length and discard excess. In all cases, the second layer should be cut below the groin level to prevent “roll back.” For limbs presenting significant taper (conical), it may be advisable for the second layer to be left shorter to avoid greater compression along the top of your limb

Care Instructions

Attach hook to pile before washing. Machine wash warm, no bleach; dry low.

Precautions

The Knit-Rite A/K Compressogrip shrinker features a higher compression power than the B/K Compressogrip shrinkers. At 50% stretch this fabric provides 25-30mmHg compression. At 100% stretch the compression is doubled. Double layers will double compression at both 50% and 100% stretch. Application of more than two layers, or more than 100% stretch, may exceed the limits of desired therapeutic pressure.
