STEP 2: Length

Length is a matter of preference. However, the typical rule is 2-3 inches past the middle of your knee cap. Continue to STEP 3: Find your size

 

STEP 3: Find your size

Take both your top, bottom, and length measurements and use the chart to determine your size. If you're in-between sizes, we suggest remeasuring again to be on safe side. Size Regular is typically worn by below-knee prosthesis users.

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).  Please don't guess, if you still have your sock packaging you can refer to the packaging size tab.  Pay special attention not to pull your measuring tape too tight.  Doing so will produce a measurement that is too small. 

The most difficult measurement is the bottom measurement.  Too often, people measure too high along the bottom of their limbs producing a larger "Bottom" measurement.  Ideally, measure 2 inches up from the bottom of your limb and use a pen to mark this level on your limb. Once you know exactly where to measure, use a tape measure to carefully measure your bottom circumference.

Knit-Rite X-Wool Sock Description

The Knit-Rite X-Wool Prosthetic Sock with X-STATIC is a relatively new wool prosthetic sock from Knit-Rite that contains a few high performance features. The Knit-Rite X-Wool is made from Virgin Wool, the most popular natural sock textile. Wool socks offer cushioning and may be considered by many amputees as more durable than a cotton or polyester alternative. Designed with X-STATIC, Knit-Rite wanted you to benefit from thermal conductivity, so your residual limb at an even temperature. The silver infused X-STATIC promotes skin hygiene by protecting against bacterial growth and fungi.
