Comfort & Durability Now Fabric-Free

WillowWood’s Alpha Duo™ Liner YOU ASKED, WE LISTENED. It has been long expressed that clinicians and amputees alike desired a fabric-free Alpha Liner option. But the Alpha line is a lot to live up to and creating a fabric-free liner that is as equally as impressive as its counterparts was no easy feat. The unique Continue reading…

Using the Alpha® Liner to Manage Residual Limb Volume Change

Last month we talked about the concept of Alpha Liner “retrofitting” – swapping out one kind of Alpha Liner for another without having to switch sockets. As you may recall, there are two types of retrofitting. Our previous post described Lifestyle Activity Retrofitting, where you swap a liner of one interface material for another to Continue reading…

An Interface Material for Every Activity

You’ve probably heard of the concept of “retrofitting” in many aspects of your life – maybe retrofitting the windows in your house, or retrofitting the stereo in your car. In each example, you are replacing some of the equipment that was not originally part of the item. Did you know you can do the same Continue reading…

What To Do With Used Prostheses?

WillowWood receives several calls a month from families and amputees about what they can do with prostheses that are no longer needed.

More and Less Lead to Good DESIGN

Less is more. More or less. Why choose? Can’t you have both more and less? Yes! Alpha DESIGN® Liners, prosthetically speaking, eliminate the need for clinicians to choose between more and less. With the release of Alpha DESIGN Liners in 2005 more control was put in the hands of clinicians to design liners from the Continue reading…

Creative Design of Custom Liners

Ten years ago, WillowWood introduced Alpha DESIGN® Liners to allow practitioners to specify the thickness and placement of gel within an Alpha® Liner. That initial offering of Alpha DESIGN Liners focused on amputees with uniquely-shaped limbs who could not wear off-the-shelf liners to experience the comfort of Alpha gel.

Thank You, Good Samaritans

Thank you. Just two little words, but they can convey so much emotion. For an individual who receives prosthetic care or a prosthesis free-of-charge from a generous clinician or as part of a mission trip abroad, the simple phrase of ‘Thank you’ may be the easiest way to convey a flood of emotions. In a Continue reading…
