Prosthetic Sheath. Made of stretchable nylon and polyester to ensure a snug fit and prevent any looseness that might cause soreness or discomfort. Unique open mesh construction conforms to shape while allowing for needed ventilation. The toe area is reinforced for greater wear resistance while the top is designed with a turned welt construction for added strength. Available in three lengths for below knee application.
This kind of prosthetic sheath is perfect for use below the knee, and it fits gently but securely around your stump. To ensure your comfort, it has been made using a mix of nylon and polyester. This combination allows for flexibility as well as strength, the two most important attributes of any prosthetic sheath.
The fabric of the sheath lies directly against your skin so you won't experience any looseness that would result in soreness and cause damage to your skin. It has been uniquely designed in an open mesh pattern which means that it more easily conforms to your exact limb shape and increases ventilation to prevent the itchiness associated with the buildup of sweat and other debris.
The toe section of this prosthetic sheath is made of a reinforced material which allows it to cope with high levels of wear and tear. The top section has a turned welt construction, which gives it the necessary added strength.
There are three sizes available, all of which are measured according to the stump sock length.
Sized according to stump sock length.

It takes a little to get the sock to stretch. For the price and comfort this sock is great.
