Engineered Silicone Products created the Flexi Suction Suspension Sleeves in order to offer several cost effective suspension sleeve products which are able to provide a secure connection between the limb and the prosthesis while still allowing natural, unrestricted movement, thanks to their pre-flexed, anatomically shaped design. Comfortable and durable, these suspension sleeves are made from high-grade neoprene and still a cheaper alternative to straight suspension sleeves.
The ESP Flexi Sport™ Suspension Sleeve is specially design to maximize comfort and mobility for all who wear it, especially those who with higher activity levels, courtesy of its performance knee joint, reinforced with nylon both inside and out and preflexed to 43° for a good fit. Its heavy duty construction is 3/16 inches thick and made from the highest quality latex-free neoprene that is specially coated to resist crumbling and cracking. The inside is textured to give a secure grip on the leg. It also features decreased internal pressure at its trimline, which works together with the 43 degree pre-flex to reduce the possibility of the sleeve breaking down around this trimline. This strong and durable sleeve also has an excellent stretch to allow anyone to easily don and doff it.
All Flexi-Suction Suspension Sleeves are ideal for below the knee amputees that secure their prosthetic limb with pin suspension or other mechanical systems, as well as for BK amputees that use standard (passive) suction suspension systems via a suction valve. For below-the-knee amputees that use a vacuum (active) suction suspension to wear their prosthetic leg, try the ESP Seal-Tite Suspension Sleeve instead.
