Alps Extreme Sleeve Materials
The Alps Extreme Sleeve uses Alps' Grip Gel to maintain its place for a tight and confident suspension. Grip Gel is a TPE gel that is formulated to be slightly more tacky for better skin adhesion.
Daily: Be sure to clean the Alps Extreme Sleeve on a daily basis with a light washcloth and neutral/pH-balanced soap, Amputee Essentials Prosthetic Cleanser and Ottobock Derma Clean are especially made for this purpose. Do not scrub or rub the gel during washing, this can damage the gel. Rinse well because soap residue can cause skin issues. Make sure your Alps sleeve is completely dry before using.
Weekly: Place a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a soft, clean cloth. Do not soak the Extreme Sleeve in alcohol. Wipe the sleeve with a the cloth thoroughly, wipe dry with a towel. To remove a stain on the fabric side, use a cloth dampened in nail polish remover and rub until clean. Do NOT soak in nail polish or you will dissolve the gel!
Hand wash only, machine washing can damage the sleeve. Avoid petroleum jelly and other oil based lubricants, as they will damage your Extreme Sleeve. Do Not soak your Extreme BK Sleeve in alcohol.
