Ohio WillowWood Alpha Liners

ohio willowwood baby linerThe Alpha® Original Liner led the prosthetic world into a whole new level of comfort in 1996. This unique limb and skin protection interface surrounds the residual limb in a layer of skin-friendly, mineral-oil-based gel. Made from thermoplastic elastomer (not silicone or urethane!), the gel gently adheres to the skin to protect against abrasion and breakdown while also proving to be extremely skin-friendly. The Alpha® gel is covered in a layer of durable fabric that helps to extend the life of the liners and makes it very easy for amputees to slide into their sockets.

In order to provide maximum amputee comfort and socket fit, Alpha® Liners are available in three gel thicknesses as well as six sizes to adapt to the amputee’s limb circumference. Additionally, the medium, medium-plus, and large sizes are available in three distinct styles of gel patterns to accommodate various limb shapes with additional comfort. Alpha® Original Cushion Liners are ideal for use in suction sockets with the Alpha® Suction Pro, Suction Pyramid, or Suction Spacer Plate.

Use the thickest liner that is comfortable for the patient. The 6mm and 9mm liners provide the most cushioning for the amputee, and are often the best choice. The 3mm liner is useful at times when at least 3mm of shrinkage is expected, so that you can move the amputee into thicker liners as the shrinkage progresses.

A new socket should be fabricated, according to instructions, for best use of Alpha® liners.
