Alpha® Hybrid AK Symmetrical Liner

A reinforced blend of durable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) gel containing mineral oil and vitamin E. Designed to combine the comfort of Classic Gel with the durability of silicone, this all-round liner is as the name suggests – the best of both. With sufficient flow for bony prominences and suitable stability to control loose tissue, the added durability, compared to Classic gel, means higher activity users can achieve a comfortable fit with less regular liner replacements.

Features and benefits

  • Balanced flow and rebound provide a great solution that can minimise peak pressures whilst providing stability and durability.
  • The right amount of stability to cater to a wide range of tissue consistencies
  • Suitable for all activity levels, from low to high
Interface Material: Hybrid Gel
  • Alpha Silicone AK Liners

Symmetrical Profile

The symmetrical profile has increased thickness distally to provide increased comfort and protection. This tapers to 2.5mm proximally for easy donning, and a thinner edge when cutting. Being uniform circumferentially means that it can be rotated by the user to increase its lifespan.

  • 9mm distal end
  • Thins to 2.5mm proximally
  • Uniform circumferentially

Select Fabric

The Select fabric is WillowWood’s most durable and comfortable offering. Through the utilisation of unidirectional stretch material, pistoning is eliminated without the need for a distal matrix. This also means that it is easier to don for the user, and can accommodate more volume fluctuations, without the need for a new liner.

Features and benefits

  • Unidirectional stretch – eliminates pistoning without a distal matrix
  • Increased durability
  • Easy to don
  • Can accommodate volume fluctuations

Accordion Umbrella

The accordion umbrella increases socket comfort by conforming to the shape of the underlying residuum, reducing stress and providing a more uniform pressure distribution. The umbrella size correlates to the liner size, meaning equal comfort and conformity across all sizes.
