Sealing Sleeve Systems
- Used only for a below the knee prosthesis, sealing sleeve systems often are paired with a gel cushion liner (no locking pin) which is applied to the body in the same manner as a pin locking liner.
- With the limb placed in the socket, a sealing sleeve is applied over the outer upper portion of the socket and pulled up onto the thigh creating a seal against the skin.
- A one way expulsion valve is normally integrated at the base of the socket to allow air to expel creating a form of suction suspension. The valve is removed to ease taking the prosthesis off.
