  • Ventilated and Lightweight for patient comfort

  • Customized to constantly fit the patient during rapid volume changes—no need for excess sock ply.

  • Soft design prevents pressure wounds as seen with rigid plastic devices.

  • Hygienic- easily removed for inspection and cleaning.

  • No free pieces to lose in this modular design.

  • Customized patient bag with donning tube, amputation sock and shrinker sock included.

 

Utilization Protocol

  • For use at all times after transtibial amputation surgery.

  • Remove to inspect dressing at least 2 times per day or according to the surgeon’s orders.

  • Remove the single sock and inspect dressing. Report any drainage (signs of blood visible through bandages) to your nurse and therapist for inspection and recording.

  • Apply ONE clean soft amputation sock over the dressing--this sock should be checked (and/or changed) twice per day. Pull all wrinkles out of the sock.

  • If the dressing has been changed or the bandaging de-bulked please contact Prosthetist for an adjustment to the PROtec®
