Alpha DESIGN® Liners
For patients with atypical residual limb contours, Alpha DESIGN Liners offer a tailored solution, with custom-designed gel profiles providing a comfortable fit which is unmatched by off-the-shelf liners.
Created from a scan or cast of the residual limb, DESIGN Liners are customised on the inside to maintain a more typical exterior shape to fit a standard socket. Gel placement, pattern and thickness, as well as fabric type and colour, may be precisely tailored to any patient limb shape.
Gel may be up to 25mm thick, which is especially useful for invaginated or bony limbs. Gel on the proximal edge and behind the knee may be as thin as 3mm, providing greater comfort and range of knee motion.

How to order
There are four ways in which you can capture the shape and order an Alpha DESIGN Liner:
- Send a cast of the limb to Ortho Europe, together with the DESIGN Liner order form
- Scan the residual limb with a 3D scanner and send the SL file and order form to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Create your own DESIGN Liner with the OMEGA software
- Scan the residual limb with the Alpha DESIGN app, complete the order form, attach optional pictures and notes, and place the order from the app
