ALPS™ Guardian Suction Liner from PEL
The new ALPS™ Guardian Suction Liner features a high performance knitted fabric cover created by integrating ALPS proprietary in-house knitting techniques with GripGel™ technology. The resulting material not only increases functional improvement and ensures durability, but also inhibits skin breakdown and surface discoloration.
Raised GripGel bands form a secure interface between the socket and the liner to prevent slippage or premature release. Low modulus GripGel bands stretch against the socket wall while the inner wall conforms easily to the residual limb to ensure there is no restriction of blood flow or stiffening to inhibit donning.
Suitable for both transtibial and transfemoral amputees, the new liner is rated for K2, K3 and K4 activity levels.

Go sleeveless with the Unity™ Sleeveless Vacuum System by Össur®
Until now, all advanced vacuum systems have required a sleeve to maintain vacuum. The problem is, sleeves are bulky. They bunch behind the knee, restricting range-of-motion. They can also puncture, leading to a loss of vacuum.
Enter Unity. Building on established Seal-In® technology, the Unity Sleeveless Vacuum System by Össur is the first advanced vacuum solution to generate 15-22 inHg of vacuum without a sleeve.
Unity Sleeveless Vacuum is compatible with a variety of Flex-Foot feet, including low activity, low profile and microprocessor solutions.
Visit http://www.ossur.com/unity to learn how to get certified and check out the entire line of Unity-compatible Flex-Foot feet, including low-profile and microprocessor solutions.
