The ALPS EasySleeve Fabric Reinforced is made of ALPS GripGel that combines elasticity, strength, and softness to provide superior comfort to lower leg BK amputees. The unique nature of this GripGel material also helps prevent the sleeve from rolling down the patient's lower limb. The elasticity of the integrated fabric cover still allows the user excellent freedom of motion throughout the entire range of knee joint flexing movement.
The ALPS Reinforced EasySleeve is able to attain secure and superior suspension of the prosthetic by vacuum sealing with the skin without restricting the wearer's blood circulation, while also sticking to the skin without causing shear forces via its GripGel material. This reinforced suspension sleeve can also act as an alternative to using pin prosthesis suspension, or be used to add security to a pin prosthesis suspension, without any loss in comfort or durability, thanks to the high performance Lycra fabric which reinforces it.
The ALPS EasySleeve with Fabric Reinforcement is available in uniform 3 mm and 6 mm thicknesses, along with longer lengths which can accommodate even more below the knee amputees.
