Endolite Comfort Liner
The Endolite Comfort Liner is gentle on fragile skin and protects residual limbs with areas susceptible to shear force abrasion and pressure peaks. The fabric cover with integrated matrix contours perfectly to the limb and zonal stretch areas allow comfortable knee flexion but resist distal stretch with would result in the prosthesis slipping away from the body. At 485mm, the Endolite Comfort Liner allows additional consideration for positioning of the trim line. The Comfort Locking Liner features a super flexi-umbrella which inverts easily to facilitate optimal donning. The Comfort Liner features a TendresseTM silicone finish resulting in a low coefficient of friction which reduces shear stress on skin. In tests, the TendresseTM finish measured 78% less shear stress than standard silicone.
