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.
