I work as a prosthetist in the North of England…. until recently we have
used a hosiery type suspension (made by Scholl) for a small number of female
PTB wearers….I’m not sure if these are used at all outside of the UK but
basically it is an elastic garment which stretches over the whole prosthesis
and is fastened to a suspender belt at about mid thigh level (basic but highly
regarded by users !). They were produced by Scholl and designed specifically
for PTB suspension. Recently Scholl stopped producing them and we are having
difficulty finding something to replace them with.
We have looked at several “compression” type garments as a replacement but
with little success ….most stretch along their length within a short space
of time and are just not designed for suspending a PTB.
I wonder if anyone uses a similar type of garment and could help out with
some details. Many Thanks.
