Prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers share how to choose the right prosthetic silicone inner sleeve
Prosthetic silicone inserts produced by prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers are available in many medium sizes and sizes to suit patients with different conditions. When choosing a silicone inner liner, patients should consider the size of the residual limb at the amputation site, the soft tissue condition of the residual limb, the amputee's activity level and accessories, because the silicone inner liner selected for different residual limb degrees is different. The following prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers teach you how to choose a prosthetic silicone inner sleeve.
1. Prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers recommend choosing according to the size of the product, measuring the circumference of the residual limb and the length of the residual limb to select the silicone inner liner. The wrong size will cause the amputee to feel uncomfortable, sweat, and reduce the impact on the prosthesis. control ability.
2. The soft tissue of the residual limb and the firmness of the residual limb are different, some are more fleshy, some are more bones. Prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers say that if the residual limb has a fleshy end, a stabilized silicone insert can be used to more effectively control the soft tissue. If the stump end is bony, choose a nursing silicone inner liner, which has a thicker pad to cover the bony protruding part of the stump end.
3. Patient activity level: The low-intensity activity level refers to the use of auxiliary walking tools in daily activities, slow and steady walking, such as walking around the house, and light walking in the community. The medium-intensity activity level refers to daily activities limited to ordinary activities. Walking, with the ability to change speed or walk at will, such as going out shopping, walking independently outdoors; high-intensity activity level refers to daily activities such as walking quickly, jogging or going up and down stairs, such as light carrying work.
4. Silicone bushing accessories: Prosthetics and orthopaedic materials suppliers say that standard silicone bushings are end-umbrella-shaped barrels designed to fit most residual limb shapes. When the shape of the amputee's residual limb is in an abnormal or non-standard range, the residual limb cannot be fully contacted with the silicone inner bushing. At this time, suitable accessories can be selected to match the silicone inner bushing to achieve shape matching. Umbrella pads and half-moon pads are available for stump ends that are square, flat or tapered.
