ALPS Silicone | Protect your skin!

What happens when a shear force, like that generated inside a prosthetic socket during ambulation, is applied on a pure silicone surface?

Due to the high coefficient of static friction of pure silicone, the shear stress is transferred to the skin of the residual limb, leading to blisters in patients with sensitive skin and poor vascularity.

ALPS, thanks to its expertise, was able to develop an innovative, 100% skin friendly silicone liner without any additives.
