Apply your Medi BK shrinker by placing the bottom of the shrinker on the end of your limb. Slowly pull and work the material up onto your limb. Last, adjust final placement and smooth out any creases that formed during application. Do Not pull your shrinker onto your limb by grasping the top edge only. It is highly recommended that you review usage guidelines with your Prosthetist and report any changes in fit or condition of your residual limb. Changes in the size of your limb may occur, in which case a new limb measurement should be taken and a new shrinker fitted if necessary. Do not wear the shrinker while your prosthesis is in use.
To keep your stump shrinker functioning properly, Medi USA recommends hand wash daily with warm water or machine wash daily using the lowest permanent press setting. Use a mild compression detergent and do not launder with fabric softeners, chlorine, or other additives.
Discontinue use and consult with your Prosthetist if any issues or changes in your limb and/or skin develop. Shrinkers are contraindicated for open wounds or weeping areas on your limb, stasis dermatitis and non-reduced edema.
