Alps Winters Silicon Gel Cushion or Locking Liners.
As described in the movie, Dolphin Tale, “The special silicone gel sleeve developed for Winter is now making prosthetic limbs more comfortable for human – and animal – amputees.” By doing so, WintersGel Prosthetic Liners Prosthetic Liners brings the tale of Winter the dolphin full circle by helping humans just as humans helped her.
The Never Ending Tale of WintersGel
WintersGel Prosthetic Liners offers a gentle adhesion that is skin friendly and cushioning. The protective gel creates a more comfortable fit and promotes longer prosthesis wear time. These special features are especially beneficial for those with delicate skin, scar tissue or other residual limb concerns.
Using the same material worn by Winter, the star of Dolphin Tale, a complete selection of WintersGel Prosthetic Liners are now being offered exclusively by Hanger Clinic. Creating a soft, smooth cushion between the socket and prosthetic limb, WintersGel Prosthetic Liners greatly enhance patient comfort to enable extended wear. Their soft elastic nature and gentle adhesion holds limbs securely under the most difficult conditions while staying extremely skin-friendly. And a high circumferential stretch coupled with a limited vertical stretch improves limb conformability while limiting unwanted pistoning.
WintersGel is Suitable for All
The liner is available in a fabric locking liner and fabric cushioning liner. It comes in two thicknesses and a wide range of sizes. WintersGel Prosthetic Liners is suitable for children and adults (and dolphins).
