Liners - Silcare Breathe Technology

Liners for Transtibial Amputees


Blatchford's liner technology includes:

  • Silcare Breathe (Cushion and Locking) and
  • Blatchford Silcare

Both ranges are available in Walk or Active.

Silcare Breathe is a silicone liner with laser drilled perforations to allow moisture and air to escape for drier skin and a more secure socket fit. 


Silcare Breathe ACTIVE (previously Silcare Breathe)

Blatchford’s original liner range using a firmer silicone. Suitable for more active users i.e. those who have an activity level of 3 or 4.

Features:
• Firmer silicone for firmer connection between residual limb and liner
• Improvements in residual limb health and wound healing, compared to non-perforated liners
• Improved heat dissipation compared to other temperature regulation solutions
• Removes sweat from skin-liner interface
• Reduces the need to remove prosthesis throughout the day to dry residual limb, compared to     non-perforated liners
• Easy to don
• Seamless bi-directional stretch to improve comfort and contouring. Shear forces on the knee     are reduced as it flexes
• Tendresse(TM) finish provides a lower coefficient of friction than standard silicone, reducing       shear stresses on skin
• 6-month warranty

Cushion System – use in conjunction with a one-way valve and airtight suspension sleeve helps to generate a better vacuum and more secure fit.

Locking System

Uni-directional stretch distally resists pistoning whilst bi-directional stretch proximally allows for comfortable knee flexion.

Locking system and unique one-way valve create an airtight seal between the skin and the inner surface of the liner. No separate suspension sleeve is required making knee flexion easier, creating a cooler environment for skin and a more comfortable limb and socke tconnection.

 



NEW Silcare Breathe Walk

Silcare Breathe Walk has been made using a softer silicone to improve cushioning especially at the distal end. This range of liners are designed to be more flexible, softer and provide increased comfort.

The softer silicone also improves the stretch of the liner. The increased longitudinal stretch makes knee-flexion easier whilst increased circumferential stretch allows the liner to conform more easily and comfortably to the thigh.

Available in both Locking and Cushion versions, the Silcare Breathe Walk range benefits the low to moderate wearers and those with more sensitive or fragile residual limb tissue.

Features - Cushion and Locking
• Softer silicone for improved cushioning of the residual limb
• Improvements in residual limb health and wound healing, compared to non-perforated liners
• Improved heat dissipation
• Removes sweat from skin-liner interface.
• Reduces the need to remove prosthesis throughout the day to dry residual limb, compared to
  non-perforated liners
• Easy to don
• Bi-directional stretch improves comfort and contouring and reduces shear force at the knee
   during flexion
• TendresseTM finish provides a lower coefficient of friction than standard silicone, reducing
   shear stresses on skin

Locking version only:
- Technical knitted outer cover has integrated distal matrix with uni-directional stretch to resist
  pistoning
- Seamless knitting technology allows a smoother transition between the bi-directional and
  uni-directional stretch zones
- Flexi-umbrella - inverts easily to facilitate optimal donning

 

Silcare Active (previously Comfort Liner)

Silcare Active (previously Comfort)

Silcare Active is gentle on fragile skin and is best suited to those with well covered residual limbs. The fabric cover with integrated matrix contours perfectly to the limb and zonal stretch areas allow comfortable knee flexion but resist distal stretch which would result in pistoning.

Features:
Cushion version:
• Seamless bi-directional stretch to improve comfort and contouring
• Tendresse(TM) finish reduces shear stress on the skin
• 6-month warranty

Locking version:
• Pin lock version suitable for a variety of lock and pin types
• Stabilising external matrix with integrated stretch zones
• Tendresse(TM) finish reduces shear stress on the skin
• 6-month warranty

 

NEW Silcare Walk

Silcare Walk

Silcare Walk liners have been developed using a softer silicone to improve the cushioning especially at the distal end. This range of liners is designed to be more flexible, softer and provide increased comfort.

The softer silicone gives less restriction on the limb, making knee flexion easier and enabling the liner to conform easily to the thigh. Available in both Locking and Cushion versions, the Silcare Walk range benefits the low to moderate wearers and those with more sensitive or fragile residual limbs.

Features:
• Softer silicone for improved cushioning
• Less restriction on the limb
    - Easier knee flexion (3 x more longitudinal stretch)
    - Conforms easily to thigh (2 x more circumferential stretch)
• Easy to don
• Bi-directional stretch improves comfort and contouring and reduces shear force on the knee during flexion
• TendresseTM finish provides a lower coefficient of friction than standard silicone, reducing shear stresses on skin

Locking version:
- Technical knitted outer cover has integrated distal matrix with uni-directional stretch to resist pistoning
- Seamless knitting technology allows a smoother transition between the bi-directional and uni-directional stretch zones.
- Flexi-umbrella - inverts easily to facilitate optimal donning
