HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRODUCT?

OUR SHOP PAGE SHOWS OUR RANGE OF PRODUCTS. LEGS, ARMS & AMPUTEES. CLICK ON THE RELEVANT PRODUCT AND THE SIZING GUIDES WILL BE DISPLAYED.

LEGS:

  • Toes & ankles –  short leg (35 cm long) product which reaches  to mid-calf – choose medium leg for swimming
  • To reach below the knee – medium leg (56 cm long) – choose long leg for swimming
  • Above the knee – long leg  100 cm long reaching to the thigh

For swimming always choose a longer product for extra protection.

ARMS:

  • Fingers & hands short arm 35cm long reaches  to mid forearm choose medium arm for swimming
  • Hand and wrist –  medium arm 51cm long reaches below the elbow
  • Above elbow –  choose a full arm

SEAL SIZES (OPENING)

  • Measure your limb circumference around the fleshy part in centimetres, bear in mind anything over 27 cm we recommend need a 40! (30 is very small)

For example:  You have measured your forearm to cover your fingers and hand and it measures 30 centimetres, choose a short arm, medium aperture 40 – Code:  SA/M/40

You have measured your leg for a long leg to reach to your thigh, the circumference is 70 cm, order a long leg 90 = LL/L/90 which covers 70 to 90 cm circumference.

HOW SHOULD IT LOOK ON MY LIMB?

  • A 1 cm seal will form approximately 4 cm above your dressing
  • Release the air via the seal so the cover clings to your limb like a second skin

For a baby’s leg or arm choose a  short arm product

For a child’s leg to reach to the thigh choose a medium leg & to reach below the knee on a small child choose a  short leg

For a child’s arm to reach to below the shoulder choose a medium arm & to reach below the elbow on a small child choose a short arm
