Suspension sleeve suggestions for running

Amy Paulios

Hello List,

I have a few very active patients looking to run using their below knee
prostheses, and I’m having trouble finding just the right suspension
sleeve which will provide a great connection between limb and socket but
not be too bulky in the popliteal area. Seems I can find thin sleeves
but they either don’t stretch enough or don’t hold up. I’m eager to
hear what other prosthetists are using.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
