HOOD Colour Coding System

Each HOOD prosthetic sock is coded with a coloured thread stitched at the top of the sock. Each colour corresponds to the thickness of the sock or number of plies.

  • White = 1 Ply
  • Beige = 2 Ply
  • Yellow = 3 Ply
  • Pink = 4 Ply
  • Green = 5 Ply
  • Grey =  6 Ply
  • Purple = 7 Ply
  • Blue = 8 Ply

Determining Correct Sock Size


  • Measure limb circumference at the top of the prosthesis socket. Divide by 2; this will be the top width* of the sock.


  • Measure the length of the limb from the distal end to the top of the socket. Add 2” – 4” to allow for fit and/or shrinkage. This will be the length of the sock.


  • Measure circumference 2” above the bottom of the residual limb. Divide by 2; This will be the toe measurement (Toe width of a HOOD sock is automatically determined by the size ordered)*

* Approximate measurements.

Top width is measured as sock is laid flat

Distal Holes

Socks with distal holes are available for most type of socks. Please refer to the sizing charts for model numbers. Once you have chosen the model number and size, simply substitute the first number with an H (example: 51038-20 becomes H1038-20).
