The ALPS Extreme Sleeve 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 sleeve has a limited vertical stretch, but 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 Extreme Sleeve 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 fabric which reinforces it.
The ALPS Extreme Sleeve with Fabric Reinforcement is available in uniform 3 mm and 6 mm thicknesses, which makes it an ideal suspension sleeve for a wide range of activities and levels of use.
