The inside story on liner choices
from Lower Extremity Review
Selecting the right prosthetic liner for an amputee patient is a complex problem that clinicians grapple with daily. They find themselves constantly weighing trade-offs between liner features. Cushioning and comfort inevitably must be balanced with durability. More cushioning decreases how long the liner will maintain its shape and protective properties before deteriorating. But a thicker liner adds weight and decreases the ability to control the limb. A thinner liner may provide better functionality, but reduce comfort.
