Description

Finally, a Pain Solution for Above-Knee Amputees

Say goodbye to socket discomfort and skin breakdown for good

Are you an above-knee amputee who suffers from pain, redness, soreness, or rubbing where your prosthesis comes into contact with your residual limb? Then you know that pain can lead to blisters, discomfort, and even open wounds. And left untreated, wounds on your limb can prevent you from using your prosthesis and limit your mobility.

Fortunately, there’s finally a solution that works – a solution that’s focused on healing existing hotspots, and preventing new ones from forming.

The Ultimate Solution for Painful Rubbing

The Above-Knee Prosthetic Brim Sheath uses a patented technology to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes hotspots and sores. The brim sheath absorbs friction to protect amputees’ skin where it comes into contact with their prosthetic liner. It’s designed for use with any pin suspension or seal-in liner. By preventing friction, the silk-like fabric protects against hotspots, blisters, sores and other skin irritation when used daily.

The Above-Knee Prosthetic Brim Sheath is ideal for lower limb amputees who have any of the following on their residual limbs:

  • Pain and soreness
  • Redness and hotspots
  • Rubbing
  • Wounds

Say Goodbye to Rubbing and Pain

When you buy an Above-Knee Prosthetic Brim Sheath, you’re buying a medical tool that can help you prevent painful rubbing and hotspots. Even a small hotspot can turn into a debilitating wound if you don’t take action.

You don’t have to go another week or month with painful hotspots. Don’t wait. Invest in a long-term solution – buy the Above-Knee Prosthetic Brim Sheath today.

How to Use Your Prosthetic Brim Sheath

Product Instructions

Important! Please measure your socket brim before purchasing. See the size chart tab on how to measure.

Simply stretch the top of the sheath around your brim, then insert the sheath into your socket. Then use your prosthesis as usual. Gripper elastic band prevents sleeve from slipping off the prosthesis.

Wear daily to prevent and relieve skin breakdown around your groin area. Machine or hand wash and dry after each use. Contact your healthcare provider if you have any questions about the use of this product.

Size Chart

To find out what size Brim Sheath you will need, please measure your socket brim circumference. There are 2 ways you can do this:

1. Measure the diameter, outside edge of your socket brim to the inside edge of your socket brim. Then take that measurement (diameter) times by 3.14 to get your circumference.

2. Use a piece of rope or a fabric tape measure around the widest part of your socket brim (usually the top).

Please take note, that our Brim Sheaths run small. If your socket brim circumference is at the higher end of any given size, we recommend going up a size to ensure the Brim Sheath is not too snug.

Please contact us at info@tamarackhti.com or call us at 866-795-0057 if you have any questions.
