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.
