skins and covers for adjustable heel feet

DeAnna Clough

I am working with a prosthetic patient who is wearing an adjustable heel
height foot and wants to have her transtibial prosthesis covered. What
covers and skins have people had success with when specifically using a foot
that the user can adjust the heel height? My concerns are the stretching
and bunching of the skin and cover as she changes shoes, as well as overall
durability. All suggestions are appreciated.
