The Silipos HD-BK (Heavy Duty Below Knee) Gel Suspension Sleeve is intended for below-the-knee amputees with an activity level of low to moderate. In comparison to Silipos’ standard BK Gel Suspension Sleeve the HD-BK is more durable with a fabric inner layer designed to protect the sleeve from sharp or rough prosthetic trimelines. Please be aware though this sleeve is by no means intended for weekend warriors as the name may imply. The HD-BK version is simply a more robust sleeve in comparison to the standard BK Gel Suspension Sleeve. This sleeve has the same benefits of the standard suspension sleeve including friction reduction, pressure relief over your knee cap and skin conditioning plus a heavy duty fabric inner liner. It’s a great sleeve for those below knee amputees with sensitive skin or looking for a more conformable suspension sleeve.

Materials

Knitted fabric with Medical Grade Mineral Oil Gel. This product contains no latex and is designed to be hypoallergenic.

Directions for Use

Remove your Silipos HD-BK 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 HD-BK Gel 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 HD-BK 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.
