Why do prosthetic patients prefer to wear silicone sleeves?   The silicone sleeve can provide a comfortable feeling for the amputee, and can effectively protect the muscle tissue, skin surface and help suspend the receiving cavity. Silicone is a soft and durable material that can be made into different proportions. Its unique material properties and functions have cushioning and shock absorption effects on bone protrusions and sensitive parts. Its high elasticity can help the residual limbs fully contact and fix the shape. The tear resistance also increases its durability. Initially, silicone sleeve were only used for calf amputees. Nowadays, both thigh and upper limb amputees can enjoy it.   Is it possible for all amputees to install silicone? Yes, all patients can install it, but in terms of humanism and economics, prosthetic technicians only recommend silicone sleeves to patients with poor residual limb conditions and severe skin trauma. Although silica gel is comfortable, the price is not cheap, and the cheap ones can be hundreds, and the service life is relatively short. Most of them can only be used for 1 to 2 years, and it is easy to form dependence. In the future, it will not be able to walk smoothly without a silicone sleeve. Therefore, for patients with poor financial ability, we have launched economical silicone socks. The elasticity of the silicone sleeve makes it soft and tightly contain the stump, protect and stabilize the soft tissue of the stump, avoid the friction of the stump in the receiving cavity, reduce or even eliminate local pressure, and provide a comfortable cushion for the sensitive area of ​​the skin. The silicone sleeve comfortably wraps the entire surface of the residual limb, protects sensitive skin and scar tissue, promotes and improves blood circulation, reduces the skin damage caused by the rigid receiving cavity edge, eliminates the swelling of the residual limb as soon as possible, and promotes wounds Heal, reduce muscle atrophy of the residual limb, prevent the distal skin from pulling, and keep the residual limb in a healthy state. The silicone sleeve is made of hypoallergenic medical-grade environmentally friendly material silica gel, and is added with active skin ingredients, which can effectively moisturize the skin and form a protective film on the skin surface to soften the skin, relieve itching, prevent skin allergies and help skin metabolism And so on, make the residual limb healthier.
