Use the thickest liner that is comfortable for your patient.
- The 6 mm and 9 mm liners provide the most cushioning for an amputee’s residual limb.
- A 3 mm thickness is useful when at least 3 mm of residual limb shrinkage is expected. This allows you to move a patient into thicker liners as their limb shrinks and avoids the need to make a new socket.
- Progressive and Uniform profiles allow for retrofitability between certain categories of transtibial liners.
