Silipos BK Suspension Sleeve Description

The Silipos Below Knee Gel Suspension Sleeve is a prosthetic sleeve intended for low activity amputees. This Silipos BK sleeve is best known by prosthetic users for its ability to move with your body and not bunch up in the back of the knee. This is accomplished through its light weight fabric covering and medical grade mineral oil gel lining. Those amputees with sensitive skin issues will enjoy this suspension sleeve’s ability to moisturize and sooth the skin on your thigh. If prosthetic users were to sum up the benefits of this sleeve in a few words they would say: Reduced friction, easy to use and cosmetically pleasing.  It's strongly recommended to use this sleeve with a sleeve saver to prevent premature wear.  Mineral oil gel is very soft, soothing and healing, however durability is not its trademark.
