The Knit-Rite 4-Way Stretch Shrinker is a truly great shrinker for below knee amputees. The 4-Way Stretch Shrinker features stretchy polyester/Lycra core-spun yarns providing multidirectional stretch for a shrinker that creates less discomfort when applying. Silicone beads along the top of the shrinker will prevent it from rolling down in the middle of the night. Knit-Rite has been manufacturing prosthetic textiles since the 1920s and they know how to engineer a quality shrinker.
