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: Find your size

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 Ultra Cushion Gel Liner Description

The Silipos Comfort Zone Ultra Gel Cushion Gel Liner is categorized as a prosthetic liner because it incorporates flexible and dampening materials designed to protect you from friction and abrasive shear forces. Silipos designed this prosthetic product as another tool in your arsenal to combat energy robbing friction, uncomfortable pressures within your socket and offer an overall softening effect. Simply add this liner underneath any prosthetic socks or a foam (pelite) liner to tighten your socket fit and add an extra layer of cushioning gel. 

The Silipos Ultra Cushion Gel Liner will not suspend your prosthetic limb. This below knee prosthetic liner cannot replace other brand of liners that offer suspension through a pin and locking system. However, this prosthetic liner can adapt to most prosthetic socket designs. Silipos Ultra Cushion Liner gel material is engineered to move in sync with your skin. As a result, movement such as knee flexion will not be hindered.

Benefits

  • Ultra Cushion Liner is a two layer prosthetic below-knee liner made with cotton, nylon, lycra and coated with Silipos gel
  • Patented Silipos Gel formula designed to cushion and protect boney areas
  • Ultra Cushion Liner softens the impact from stepping off a curb
  • 3 Ply and 5 Ply ( Single and Double Socket) Ultra Cushion Liners available with 3mm gel thickness
  • Toe of Silipos cushion liner is nylon reinforced for added durability
  • Silipos gel is in between a cotton/lycra layer and not against your skin 
  • Made in USA
  • Latex free and hypoallergenic medical grade mineral oil gel
  • Dermatologist tested, washable and reusable
  • *This product is not the same as a traditional gel cushion liner and closer in resemblance to a gel sock.
