Comfort Liner

The Blatchford Comfort Liner is gentle on fragile skin and protects residual limbs with areas susceptible to shear force abrasion and pressure peaks. The fabric cover with integrated matrix contours perfectly to the limb and zonal stretch areas allow comfortable knee flexion but resist distal stretch which would result in the prosthesis slipping away from the body.

The Cushion and Locking options allow the ideal choice of proximal or distal pin lock suspensions. 

Integrated Matrix
Technical knitted outer cover for the Locking Liner has integrated distal matrix with uni-directional stretch to resist pistoning. The seamless knitting technology allows a smoother transition between the bi-directional and uni-directional stretch zones.

Stretch Zones
Proximal bi-directional stretch zone improves comfort and contouring and reduces shear force on the knee during flexion.

Flexi-umbrella
The Locking Liner features a super flexi-umbrella which inverts easily to facilitate optimal donning.

TendresseTM Silicone Lining
The TendresseTM silicone finish results in a low coefficient of friction which reduces shear stress on skin. In tests this measured 78% less than standard silicone.
