Alpha® Silicone Liners

Alpha Silicone utilises a platinum-cured medical grade silicone designed for comfort and performance, with an extremely high rebound for high levels of durability. A unique blend of vitamin E and mineral oils promotes skin repair and protection, providing a non-greasy and non-tacky interface for the user.

Features and benefits

  • Low flow prevents silicone migrating away from sensitive areas
  • High rebound maintains original shape for increased durability
  • Suitable for medium to high activity users

Gel profiles

  • Progressive: 9mm gel distally and 6mm along tibial crest for increased protection, 2.5mm posterior to the knee and proximally to allow for easier knee flexion

Alpha Silicone Liners can retrofit with any Alpha Liner which has a Progressive profile. This means patients don’t need to switch socket to switch liners, making it easier to accommodate a whole range of lifestyle activities.

Fabric types

  • Select: A durable one-way stretch fabric, allowing the liner to be stretched circumferentially whilst maintaining elongation within specified limits. It also helps to control pistoning without a distal matrix
