Knit-Rite Liner-Liner Prosthetic Sock with X-Static is a prosthetic sock primarily worn by amputees who use a prosthetic liner. Typically, wearing a liner will make your residual limb sweat more so, especially on hot and humid days. Don't fret if you suffer from excessive sweating and don't wear a prosthetic liner, this stump sock will still keep you drier during those hot days.
The idea behind this stump sock is to promote skin integrity and hygiene. Knit-Rite Liner-Liner sock accomplishes this by employing prosthetic textiles such X-Static and polyester that reduce odor, absorb friction and inhibit growth of bacteria. Liner-Liner’s thin profile (less than 1 Ply) ensures it will not inhibit suspension of your roll-on gel prosthetic liner.
5.8% Lycra Spandex, 94.2% Polyester/X-Static (5%)
Wear a clean Liner-Liner sock underneath your prosthetic liner each day. Machine wash in cool water and dry light cycle. Detergent similar to Woolite, non-chlorine bleach only when needed.
Considering the thinness of the Knit-Rite Liner-Liner Prosthetic sock suspension should not be affected. However, it is suggested that you test the suspension of your prosthesis prior to using it all day. *This sock is not intended for traditional suction AK suspension sockets. Depending upon your system this sock will work with Vacuum Systems.
