Responses: Most durable cosmetic skin for transtibial prosthesis

Jeremiah Uronis

Here’s one more detailed response.

I’ve had good success with the Dreamskin from Fillauer… it’s a pvc type
skin not unlike a transradial prosthesis glove. They’ve held up for me far
better than Skinergy (which tear at the slightest area of puncture), and Daw
skins which crack/tear in areas of flexibility in the prosthesis (i.e. at
the ankle). If you do end up using a Dreamskin, know that it will take a
ton of heating and cooling in the ankle area to get the circumference of the
skin down to the size you want in case of such a youngster.
