The Silipos Distal End Pad is a gel solution intended to be placed in the bottom of your prosthetic socket to provide shock absorption and friction relief. The Distal End Pad is made with Silipos’ medical grade mineral oil providing pressure and abrasion relief. Any amputation level can use these gel end pads. Above and below knee amputees can place a gel distal end pad along the bottom of socket. Prosthetic users can add a pad to their morning sock or liner regimen. Prior to adding your prosthetic socks or liner you can first place a Silipos Distal End Pad onto the bottom of your limb and then pull up your amputee socks or roll on your prosthetic liner. If you are using a foam liner you can test adding a gel pad to the bottom for extra cushion and help prevent socket pistoning.
