Recommendations for use
These stump socks can be used in combination with any other sock in the Ortho Europe range to help your patient manage their socket fit in response to volume fluctuations. We advise that you discuss this with your patient when providing the socks.
The proximal border of our stump socks has a different weave, increasing stretch whilst decreasing compression, and helping to avoid tissue distortion, skin irritation, or socket fit problems. This is especially beneficial when combining multiple layers of stump socks.
The socks should be washed after every use in a standard washing machine at 40˚C, and allowed to dry before wearing them next. To increase the lifespan of the socks, we advise that tumble dryers are avoided.
