The Alps Superior Performance Sleeve (SPS) by Alps South was designed for high activity prosthetic users and adaptive athletes. The Alps team engineered the Superior Performance Sleeve with their high density gel (HD) formula to better match the firm texture and feel of silicone, while still retaining the comfort of gel. A firmer gel translates into greater stability and control while participating in high activity events. The Superior Performance Sleeve is suggested for those amputees that currently wear a silicone sleeve similar to Ossur's Iceross Sleeve.

To keep up with activity prosthetic users, the Alps team added a high performance durable fabric that prevents excessive vertical stretch and maximizes durability. Horizontal stretch is not limited and permits complete freedom of movement, making this a great contender for anyone who loves cycling or yoga.

The Superior Performance Sleeve creates secure suspension by sealing with the skin without compromising circulation. This below-knee sleeve is approved for use with either suction or vacuum systems (includes a pump). Installation is a breeze and cleaning is easy with Otto Bock Derma Clean. This below-the-knee prosthetic sleeve offers the perfect blend of high performance and durability.

Materials

The Alps Superior Performance uses a High Density (HD) Gel to maintain its place for tight and confident suspension.

Directions for Use

Installing your Superior Performance Sleeve (SPS) is easier than most sleeves. Insert the SPS 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 SPS sleeve onto your thigh.

Care Instructions

Daily: Be sure to clean the Alps Superior Performance Sleeve on a daily basis with a light washcloth and neutral/pH-balanced soap, Alps Prosthetic Cleanser PD595 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 the Alps suspension sleeve is completely dry before using.

Weekly: Place a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a soft, clean cloth. Do not soak the Superior Performance 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!

Precautions

Hand wash only, machine washing can damage the sleeve. Avoid petroleum jelly and other oil based lubricants, as they will damage your SPS Gel Sleeve. Do Not soak your SPS sleeve in alcohol.
