Amputee Essentials Sleeve Saver Description

Amputee Essentials Sleeve Saver is intended to prevent premature failure of B/K (below-the-knee) prosthetic sleeves. Many BK prosthetic sockets are lightweight and thin with socket trimeline edges that can prematurely wear out a prosthetic sleeve. The new Amputee Essentials Sleeve Saver increases the longevity of your prosthetic sleeve by creating a slick barrier between the socket and sleeve.


  • **Fits socket circumferences between 13-18 inches
  • Prevents premature wear of prosthetic sleeves
  • 100% Nylon Sleeve Saver 
  • Reduces friction and skin irritation over your kneecap
  • Saves your prosthetic sleeve from sharp socket trimelines and premature wear
  • Black color
  • One universal size
  • Sold individually in a polybag

Suggested Use

The Sleeve Saver is a simple double layer of nylon that is worn underneath your suspension sleeve and designed as a sleeve protector. When the Sleeve Saver is worn, the inner surface of the prosthetic sleeve is protected from abrasive socket edges.

How-to Apply

Apply your sleeve saver over the top of your prosthetic socket; tension band end down. It's important that all socket edges are covered before installing your prosthetic suspension sleeve. Once installed, pull your sleeve saver over your socket timelines and then apply your suspension sleeve over your sleeve saver. The sleeve saver's smooth nylon surface will reduce any friction or sharp prosthetic timelines from prematurely degrading your suspension sleeve.
