The Silipos Below Knee Gel Suspension Sleeve is a BK prosthetic sleeve intended for low activity below knee amputees. This bk gel sleeve is best known by BK amputees for its ability to move with your body and not bunch up in the back of the knee. This is accomplished through its light weight fabric covering and medical grade mineral oil gel lining. Those amputees experiencing sensitive skin issues will enjoy this suspension sleeve’s ability to moisturize and sooth the skin on your thigh. If BK Amputees were to sum up the benefits of this sleeve in a few words they would say: Reduced friction, easy to use and cosmetically pleasing.  It's strongly recommended to use this sleeve with a sleeve saver to prevent premature wear.  Mineral oil gel is very soft, soothing and healing, however durability is not its trademark.

Materials

Knitted fabric with mineral oil gel. This product contains no latex and is designed to be hypoallergenic.

Directions for Use

Remove your Silipos Below Knee Gel Suspension Sleeve from the package foam; save the foam for later use. Roll the suspension sleeve onto itself at half its length, exposing the gel. Grasp the half-rolled sleeve and pull onto the prosthesis. Apply the prosthesis and unroll the other half of the sleeve onto your leg. Reinsert the foam into the sleeve when not in use.

Care Instructions

Silipos recommends that you hand wash the Silipos Below Knee Gel Prosthetic Sleeve with mild detergent (no bleach) and rinse thoroughly. After washing, air dry your gel suspension sleeve and gently dust gel with talcum powder to remove tackiness.

Precautions

Do not place Silipos Below Knee Gel Suspension sleeve on an open wound. If irritation, discomfort or poor circulation occurs, discontinue use and notify your physician or Prosthetist immediately. Do not wear this gel sleeve for more than 20 hours daily.  Not recommended for moderate to high activity amputees.
