When applying your Knit Rite Soft Sock with Coolmax pay special attention to avoid pulling the sock to thin along the bottom end of your residual limb. Typically the greatest sock ply thickness is needed along the bottom. When a prosthetic sock is pulled-on vs layed-on, amputees run the risk of turning a 5 ply sock into a 3 ply sock.
Wash your Knit-Rite Soft-Socks every day right side out. Machine wash with all purpose detergent similar to Medi-Care Wash, non-chlorine bleach only when needed Rinse thoroughly and pull taut, toe to top. No liquid softeners. Last tumble dry, low heat.
Wear a clean soft sock prosthetic sock every day for proper residual limb care. Make sure to have a large enough prosthetic sock supply to keep your socks in rotation and prevent packing down of the soft sock’s fibers.
