Juzo BK Prosthetic Shrinker for below-knee amputees can be used as a substitute for bandaging or figure 8 wrapping and is designed to control swelling after an amputation. It’s not uncommon after amputation surgery to place a Juzo prosthetic shrinker over gauze bandages covering your suture line. Shrinkers or compression garments are commonly used in “limb maturation” and can be considered yet another tool to minimize phantom pain. This Juzo Varin Soft-In BK shrinker has two-way stretch elasticity that provides excellent fit and natural freedom of movement. Juzo prosthetic shrinkers are fairly smooth inside reducing any discomfort when applying this shrinker to overly sensitive recent amputations. You can also use a fitting lotion to help apply and reduce discomfort. Made of synthetic elastomers, this prosthetic shrinker is resistant to sun, ointments, lotions and perspiration.

Materials

Polyamide and Elastane

Directions for Use

Juzo recommends that you consult with your Prosthetist for proper guidelines on the use and application of this product. As therapy progresses or new symptoms develop, it may be necessary to take new measurements for a new smaller shrinker. First, turn the shrinker inside out, except for its end part. Second, take the juzo shrinker, folded over itself, in both hands and slip it over your residual limb. Third, turn the juzo shinker back and pull it evenly over your limb. Now work the whole shrinker gradually upwards, smoothing out any wrinkles, with the palm of your hand. Important, never pull at the upper edge of your prosthetic shinker.

Care Instructions

Juzo recommends hand or machine wash warm daily to maximize therapeutic effectiveness and prolong the life of your Juzo BK Prosthetic Shrinker. When machine washing and drying, use the lowest permanent press settings. Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softeners or any other laundry additives.
