GET LASTING PROTECTION

from painful rubbing where your brim comes into contact your skin at the top of your brim socket.

DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND.

Designed exclusively for above-the-knee amputees. Use the brim sheath to bridge the gap between the top edge of any roll-on liner and the groin. Designed for use with any pin suspension or seal-in liner.

COMFORT AND QUALITY.

Silk-like, breathable fabric prevents moisture and heat buildup against the skin. Patented technology reduces friction and protects skin. Made with pride in the USA from 85% nylon, 15% spandex (latex-free).

EASY TO USE.

Simply stretch the top of the sheath around your brim, then insert the sheath into your socket. Then use your prosthesis as usual. Gripper elastic band prevents sleeve from slipping off the prosthesis.

DURABLE AND MACHINE WASHABLE.

The high-quality Prosthetic Brim Sheath is made in the USA — and made to last. It is easy to care for. Just toss it in the wash with your other laundry.
