Tapered Compressogrip X-Static Description

Knit-Rite Tapered Compressogrip B/K Shrinker with X-STATIC is a prosthetic shrinker designed for individuals with larger thighs. The tapered shape reduces rolling and bunching behind your knee triggered when it’s too tight above the knee. Its tubular shape allows amputees to control or vary shrinker compression for post amputation surgery edema management.

Easily double the layers or stretch the Tapered Compressogrip B/K shrinker to manage volume control. Doubling the shrinker layers will create 2X the compression regardless of how taut you pull the shrinker. Please consult with your Prosthetist before applying more than two layers, which may exceed the desired therapeutic pressure. Controlled compression is a treatment for hypertrophic scarring along your residual limb. The Tapered Compressogrip B/K Elastic Shrinker contains X-Static fibers to inhibit odor causing bacteria in the garment and wick moisture away from your residual limb.

Benefits

  • Tapered compressogrip shrinker design is great for amputees with fuller thighs to prevent rolling down and increase comfort
  • Especially great for new amputees that can benefit from varying lengths and adjustable shrinker compression
  • Tapered top prevents over-tightness along the upper thigh, preventing rolling down
  • Incorporates X-STATIC to protect against bacteria and fungi
  • User can easily vary the tapered compressogrip shrinker’s compression to either 20-25mmHg or 40-50mmHg
  • Plastic ring along bottom to adjust length of BK Compressogrip shrinker
  • Grey color
  • Available in (4) Sizes
  • Made in the USA
  • Sold individually in a sealed polybag
