prosthetic suspension sleeves

Chelsey Anderson

Hello O&P community!

I have a very active young BK patient that currently uses a liner and
suspension sleeve for suction, but she gets pain and redness over the
anterior patella when sitting for long durations in knee flexion. I think
it is from the pull of the two layers of gel material over her knee. I am
currently using an Ossur Activa liner but I was wondering if anyone has had
any exceptional success with suspension sleeves that are preflexed,
flexible, or more comfortable/forgiving material for increased comfort in
knee flexion?

Suggestions on brands/models would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Chelsey B Anderson
