Ossur Iceross® Suspension Sleeve
The Iceross Sleeve generates good suction, more security and less resistance at the knee.
Össur took the Wave technology to the next level when developing the Iceross Sleeve. The Wave feature makes the liner easier to flex at the knee, allowing it to adapt more to the user’s movements. Less resistance means that less energy is required to flex the knee. It stretches effectively at the front and folds in a controlled way behind the knee.
Some people like to use a sleeve at the top of their socket for added security. The new Iceross Sleeve with the Waves feature helps increase security while decreasing resistance, so the knee can bend more easily.
Over the knee area, the Iceross Sleeve incorporates a series of Waves which stretch and fold vertically, making it easier to bend the knee. Lessening the resistance in this way means less energy is required to flex the knee while walking. Higher up, another set of Waves function horizontally, relieving pressure on the thigh.
The profile of the sleeve is thicker around the socket brims, focusing on strength at selected areas to reduce wear and tear.
It is recommended to use the Iceross Sleeve in conjunction with the Iceross Cushion Liner Range.
