You might be familiar with Knit-Rite, Inc.’s popular Above-Knee Brim Sheath. We’ve made that successful product even better by adding GlideWear fabric around the brim of the prosthetic socket. GlideWear reduces painful friction and shear between the prosthesis and soft tissue. As a result, when they wear the GlideWear Brim Sheath, above-knee amputees experience immediate relief from discomfort and skin breakdown around the thigh and groin.

You can use the Above-Knee Brim Sheath with all styles of prosthetic sockets and prosthetic liners. We recommend using the Brim Sheath daily and washing it regularly with dark-colored garments. It’s latex-free and incredibly comfortable.
