How to measure for knit-rite prosthetic soft sock.

STEP 2: Find your size

Take both your top and bottom measurements and use the chart to determine whether this Symes gel sock will fit your limb.

Top (cm) Bottom (cm) Liner Length (cm) Gel Length (cm)
38-51 25-37 42 38

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.

Silipos Symes Liner Description

The Silipos Symes Gel Liner is intended for amputees with a Symes amputation. The Symes Gel Liner can replace your existing 5 ply sock with its gel coated and Coolmax construction. This symes gel sock can protect and cushion your shin bone while providing a nourishing environment that conditions the skin. The Symes Gel Liner conforms around bony areas, minimizes skin breakdown, and reduces friction, shearing, and abrasion. Silipos Symes Gel Liner is extremely durable because Silipos’s patented gel is now bonded to a resilient fabric that is washable, reusable and resists gel delamination.
