This suspension sleeve for upper and lower limb amputations is used to keep the prosthetic socket on the limb. The sleeve is first put onto the prosthesis inside out before putting the limb in the socket. Once the socket is on, the sleeve is rolled up onto the limb to be in contact with the skin in order to get good suspension.
The Absolute Straight Sleeve is made with extra soft gel to optimize comfort, durability and range of motion. The high-tech material enables it to easily slide against clothing.
The sleeve is 3mm thick, comes in beige and black and a variety of sizes.
