The Iceross Sleeve generates great suction, more security and less resistance at the knee. The Iceross Sleeve has vertical functioning waves over the knee generating less resistance therefore less energy is required to flex the knee. Over the thigh area the Iceross Sleeve has horizontal functioning waves, which relieve pressure from the thigh area.
The Iceflex Balance features soft silicone and a nylon/Lycra® cover. The nylon ensures strength and Lycra provides elasticity, while our silicone offers optimal adhesion. This winning combination guarantees comfort and durability.
The Iceflex Endurance suction suspension sleeve is designed to fit over any definitive prosthetic socket. When used with a distal locking device, it provides additional security to users. In some cases the Iceflex Endurance can serve as a locking device in itself when used over a liner and definitive socket with a suction valve, ensuring that no air enters the definitive socket from above.
