Dear List Members,
I’m working with a trans-tibial patient s/p failed limb salvage, with severe scarring on the distal end of the residual limb. Grafts are present on the posterior and distal residual limb. Reducing shear on the grafted tissue is an important goal. What liner would you recommend? Specifically, would you use a liner that adheres to the skin or one that uses a layer of lubricant between the liner and skin?
