STEP 1: Top & Bottom

Measure the circumference around the middle of your knee cap and 2 inches up from the bottom of your residual limb.  The bottom circumference is the most difficult to measure because it may feel as if the tape measure is sliding off your limb. Continue to STEP 2: Length

STEP 2: Length

Length is a matter of preference. However, the typical rule is 2-3 inches past the middle of your knee cap. Continue to STEP 3: Find your size

 

STEP 3: Find your size

Take both your top, bottom, and length measurements and use the chart to determine your size. If you're in-between sizes, we suggest remeasuring again to be on safe side. Most below-knee amputees fit a size regular.

When taking body measurements, you need to use the correct type of tape measure. You will want to use a soft cloth or flexible plastic  tape measure, similar to what a seamstress uses. Do not use a metal measuring tape, used in construction (your measurements will be inaccurate).  Please don't guess, if you still have your sock packaging you can refer to the packaging size tab.  Pay special attention not to pull your measuring tape too tight.  Doing so will produce a measurement that is too small. 

The most difficult measurement is the bottom measurement.  Too often, people measure too high along the bottom of their limbs producing a larger "Bottom" measurement.  Ideally, measure 2 inches up from the bottom of your limb and use a pen to mark this level on your limb. Once you know exactly where to measure, use a tape measure to carefully measure your bottom circumference.

Knit-Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax Description

Knit-Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax is a prosthetic sock capable of wicking perspiration away from your skin, while also reducing internal socket temperatures by a degree or two.  Color coded top lets users know whether it’s a 5 Ply (Blue), 3 Ply (Green) or Lightweight Ply (Gray) sock. Amputees can adjust and fine tune their prosthetic socket fit when volume loss or gain occurs with any available 1, 3, or 5 ply Soft Sock.  A common symptom of insufficient sock ply count is low back discomfort. Experimenting with either a lightweight or 3 ply sock helps determine the appropriate amount of ply needed to raise your residual limb out of the socket and level your hips. Wearing a prosthesis with too little sock ply creates an correctable temporary leg length discrepancy.

Knitted with Coolmax extreme fibers this version of Knit Rite Soft Sock helps you to stay drier and more comfortable. Coolmax is a product of Dupont that can be blended with a variety of other fibers such as polyester to achieve different results. What makes the Soft Sock with Coolmax so unique is that its coolmax fibers aren’t round but rather oval in shape when viewed cross sectionally.  When a Soft Sock is knitted, Knit Rite adds channels lengthwise along the coolmax thread. This style of sock manufacturing provides the ability for moisture to travel through these channels away from the skin to the top of the Soft Sock. As a prosthetic wearer, this sweat can’t evaporate once on the surface, which means you have to change out your Soft Sock for a dry one periodically to stay and feel dry.  

Soft Sock Advantages

Knit-Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax prosthetic sock feels soft and huggable when worn against your skin and will keep you cooler in the summer and insulate your limb in extreme cold winter. Knit Rite added just enough Lycra so the Soft Sock fits well and can accommodate many unique residual limb shapes. The Coolmax fibers inside the Soft Sock is what makes this prosthetic sock feel so soft and provides its durability.

Knit-Rite has been making prosthetic socks since the early 1920s and they know how to make a sock with longevity. The fine knit sock construction is of the highest quality in the prosthetic industry and can hold up to the most active people. If you wear a prosthetic liner with a locking pin the Soft-Sock Coolmax is available with a sewn hole-in-toe option.

Care Instructions

 

When applying your Knit Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax pay special attention to avoid pulling the sock to thin along the bottom end of your residual limb.  Typically the greatest sock ply thickness is needed along the bottom. When a prosthetic sock is pulled-on vs layed-on, amputees run the risk of turning a 5 ply sock into a 3 ply sock.

Wash your Knit-Rite Soft-Socks every day right side out. Machine wash with all purpose detergent similar to Medi-Care Wash, non-chlorine bleach only when needed Rinse thoroughly and pull taut, toe to top. No liquid softeners. Last tumble dry, low heat.

Precautions

Wear a clean soft sock prosthetic sock every day for proper residual limb care. Make sure to have a large enough prosthetic sock supply to keep your socks in rotation and prevent packing down of the soft sock’s fibers.
