The Derma ProFlex Sleeve by Ottobock for transtibial amputations (below-knee) 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.
This sleeve is anatomically shaped to increase functionality and comfort.
- Easier knee bending and less wrinkling in the hollow of the knee.
- The conical shape for comfortable pressure distribution in the thigh area and optimal adhesion to the prosthetic socket.
- Pre-shaped knee section for reduced pressure when walking.
The sleeve is suitable for activity levels that range from low to high.
You will need to select color, length and size.
