"As a hemipelvectomy amputee for 12 years, I have experimented with different fabrics and different styles of prosthetic socks in search of the right fit and comfort level to suit my busy life. Now, thanks to Royal Knit, my quest is over! Although skeptical at first, I have found their new seamless COOLMAX® stretch sock is so comfortable, I forget that I have it on! That to me is the highest compliment I can give."

Product Info | Royal Knit

Knowing that stretch allows for a more conforming fit, it is natural that the smallest fitting size for any given patient will provide a snugger, more comfortable fit. The amount of stretch will determine the amount of ply lost and will vary from patient to patient. We initially recommend the smaller size available when sizing the patient. Royal Knit offers our prosthetic sock lines in overlapping sizes. Recommended Core Inventory - Socks.
