Say goodbye to socket discomfort and skin breakdown for good! The Above-Knee Prosthetic Brim Sheath uses patented GlideWear™ technology to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes hotspots and sores. The brim sheath reduces friction at the socket brim to protect amputees’ skin where it comes into contact with their prosthesis. It’s designed for use with any pin suspension or seal-in liner. By reducing friction (50-80%), the silk-like two ply GlideWear fabric protects against hotspots, blisters, sores and other skin irritation when used daily.
