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.

Tubular Elastic Shrinker Description

Amputee Essentials Calibrate Tubular Shrinker is a classic style prosthetic shrinker designed for below-knee and arm limb loss, focusing on acceptance and ease of application. Its tubular shape allows you to control or vary compression to better manage swelling. The top of the shrinker is finished with a cuff design for better comfort and it is constructed using latex free yarn.

Benefits

  • Incorporates latex free elastic yarn
  • Calibrate Tubular Shrinker is easy to apply and adjust compression through layering
  • Compression helps provide Phantom Pain Limb relief
  • Tubular compression offers constant uniform pressure for both upper extremity and transtibial (below-knee) limb loss. 
  • Especially great for new amputees that can benefit from varying lengths and adjustable compression
  • Users can easily vary the shrinker’s compression to either 12-16mmHg or 24-32mmHg
  • Plastic ring along bottom to adjust your tubular shrinker length
  • Black color
  • Made in the USA
  • Sold individually in a sealed polybag

Suggested Use

Easily double the layers to increase compression using the included ring. Doubling the shrinker layers will effectively double compression regardless of how taut you pull your Calibrate Tubular 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 as well.

How-to Apply

Apply the first layer. Next position the plastic ring snugly along the bottom of your residuum. And last, reflect the second tubular layer to a point of desired maximum compression.
