The Silipos Distal End Pad – 4 Inch is a mineral oil infused gel insert that helps its users find a comfortable and reliable spot for use with above or below the knee prosthesis. Distal end pads are used in applications with these prosthetics to reduce impact by shock when walking - usually does not require a doctors prescription, however, your doctor may have recommended it to you if you have been feeling pain when walking.
The Silipos Cut-to-Size Distal End Pad can be trimmed for adjustability and for a convenient size. The gel pad will still work fine with these modifications. Protection to your limb by absorbing shock and abrasion is greatly increased - so much so that some doctors will provide you with distal pad when introducing you to your prosthesis.
As your use of your prosthesis continues, your limb(s) will start to take a shape with this effect, the purpose of the distal end pad is to also aid the socket fitments by enhancing the growth of the limb that is going to be going through changes. The pad is made of a safe, latex-free and hypoallergenic material to help the universal fitment with most any patient - regardless of sensitivity to latex based products.
