Silipos Partial Foot Socks
The site of an amputation is always a vulnerable one and your feet are no exception. The Silipos Partial Foot Socks are designed to provide cushioning and comfort to the metatarsal area of the foot following an amputation.
Who Can Benefit from the Partial Foot Socks?
The Partial Foot Socks are specifically designed for those having had a transmetatarsal amputation. The socks are designed to provide protection and comfort to this area. It is a completely smooth sock lined with gel at the end. This gel is designed to moisturise and cushion the skin and therefore helps to protect this sensitive area of your foot.
The socks can be used with either orthotics or shoes that have fillers. It stops the area from becoming aggravated and helps to prevent skin breakdown at the site of the amputation. The design of the sock focuses on comfort and protection to ensure this area is looked after once the amputation has occurred.
Features of the Partial Foot Socks
The foot socks are made from CoolMax material. This ensures the sock is comfortable and has plenty of breathability so the foot does not get too hot when wearing it. The design of the sock is elastic, meaning the sock fits snugly around the ankle and rest of the foot.
The socks are completely smooth on the inside. This ensures there is no area that can be aggravated or inflamed by a rough surface but that it only provides comfort and support.
The gel at the end of the socks is designed to cover the amputation site. It is made from a medical grade mineral oil that helps to soften and protect the skin. It moisturises the skin and in this instant, helps to prevent skin breakdown.
The socks are latex free and hypoallergenic to ensure a maximum number of people can receive the benefits from the sock.
The socks come in two different sizes - regular and extra long - so you can find the right size to best suit your needs.
