Donning How-To


  1. Roll on the Silicone Liner.
       •  Make sure there is no air between the bottom of the leg and the liner by pushing the liner between your fingers so it is flat.
       •  Make sure that the pin follows the line on the leg. Add any socks that you may need for a proper fit. These go over the liner.
       •  Feel the bottom of the sock to ensure that the sock  is tight against the liner. Otherwise, socks could get caught in the locking mechanism.)
     
  2. While sitting, put your leg into the prosthesis half–way.
  3. Stand on the leg (or push on your knee) until you hear a “clicking” sound. This means you are in the leg and it is safe to walk.
       •  If you do not hear a click when you push into the leg, pull the leg off and try again. 
       •  Do not excessively force the leg into the prosthesis. 
       •  If this does not work after several attempts, re-examine the pin placement to ensure that it follows the line of the residual limb.)
     

Doffing How-To


  1. Push the button (in the middle of the button). You will hear a click. This will release the pin from the shuttle.

  2. While pushing the button with one hand, push the prosthesis with the other.

  3. Properly roll off the liner.
