    KNIT-RITE ORIGINAL COMPRESSOGRIP B/K SHRINKER WITH X-STATIC, TUBULAR ELASTIC SHRINKER, ANTIMICROBIAL 24" long (60.96cm)

    Knit-Rite Compressogrip BK Prosthetic Shrinker with X-STATIC is a prosthetic shrinker designed with below-knee wearer acceptance and ease of application in mind. Its tubular shape allows BK amputees to control or vary compression for post amputation surgery edema management. Easily double the layers of the Compressogrip BK shrinker to better manage volume control. Doubling the shrinker layers will create double the compression regardless of how taut you pull the Compressogrip prosthetic shrinker. Please consult with your Prosthetist before applying more than two layers, which may exceed the desired therapeutic pressure. Controlled compression is a treatment for hypertrophic scarring along your residual limb. The Compressogrip B/K Elastic Shrinker contains X-Static fibers to inhibit odor causing bacteria in the garment and wick moisture away from your residual limb. X-STATIC - The Silver Fiber reacts with human body chemistry and is used for its therapeutic qualities in many medical products. More than 12 years of published clinical research supports X-STATIC's safety and claims

    KNIT-RITE SOFT SOCK WITH COOLMAX TECHNOLOGY, MOISTURE CONTROL, SENSITIVE SKIN-regular\short- Hole in toe

    Knit-Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax is a prosthetic sock capable of wicking perspiration away from your skin, while also reducing internal socket temperatures by a degree or two. A common symptom of insufficient sock ply count is low back discomfort. Experimenting with either a lightweight or 3 ply sock helps determine the appropriate amount of ply needed to raise your residual limb out of the socket and level your hips. Wearing a prosthesis with too little sock ply creates an correctable temporary leg length discrepancy.
