Alps Flex Sleeve Materials
The Alps Flex Sleeve uses a High Density (HD) Gel to maintain its place for tight and confident suspension.
Daily: Be sure to clean the Alps Flex 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 Flex 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!
Directions for Use
Installing your Alps Flex Sleeve is easier than most sleeves. Insert the Flex Sleeve so that the inside is facing out and roll the sleeve up onto the socket. Begin rolling and working the reflected lower half of your sleeve over your socket, until it's full reflected over your prosthetic socket. Once your sleeve is fully installed, begin rolling your sleeve from the top down to a level below your socket's trimelines. When you're done it should look like a floating tube or a donut around your socket. Now your prosthetic leg is ready for you to place your residual limb inside and begin rolling your sleeve upward. Place your residual limb inside the socket and roll your Flex sleeve onto your thigh.
Hand wash only, machine washing can damage the sleeve. Avoid petroleum jelly and other oil based lubricants, as they will damage your Flex Sleeve. Do Not soak your Flex sleeve in alcohol.
