The uniform profile is retrofittable with most liners on the market. This means that a user can upgrade to receive the benefits of Alpha interface materials, without having to change their socket.

Select Fabric with panel
The Select fabric is WillowWood’s most durable and comfortable offering. By combining two distinct materials, it offers support, compression and flexibility. To prevent pistoning the majority of the fabric has unidirectional stretch, meaning a distal matrix is not required. This allows easy donning and accommodation of volume changes without the need for a new liner. To reduce shear stress over the patella, there is a multidirectional stretch panel over the knee which improves comfort in flexion.
Features and benefits
- Unidirectional stretch – eliminates pistoning without a distal matrix
- Multidirectional stretch – reduces shear over patella
- Increased durability
- Can accommodate volume fluctuations
The standard umbrella has a standard diameter of 68.6mm on all sizes.
