Sheaths control friction, adjust thickness, provide strength and aid skin care. 100% stretch nylon sheaths come in dusk and white colors, four widths which correspond to prosthetic sock sizes. Super Stretch Sheaths have Lycra added to the nylon to accommodate an even greater range and more conforming fit, enhance flexion, movement and improve suspension. Knit-Rite Sheaths have transfers on both sheaths of the pair to help patients position the sheath to maximize comfort.
The Silver Sheath with X-Static® is anti-odor. It also wicks moisture away from the skin and aids in thermal consistency.
PROPER CARE: Sheaths may be hand or machine washed. Use soap or mild detergent in warm water. (NO BLEACH.) Rinse thoroughly. Air dry overnight or tumble dry low.
