Sealing Sleeves

Beth Ashley CPO

Hi everyone. I have a transtibial patient with Epidermolysis bullosa. She is currently wearing a custom Uneo liner from Otto Bock and an Otto Bock Derma Proflex suspension sleeve. The liner is custom made thin as possible behind the knee. The patient continues to have discomfort with liner bunching in back of her knee. Looking to see if there is other options out there that are a little thinner or a softer material. The other option we are exploring is a seal in liner. I have never used this method on transtibial, what are others experiences with seal in? Has anyone used it on a custom Uneo liner?

Thanks in advance!

Beth Ashley, CPO
