Knit-Rite Introduces New X-Wool Prosthetic Sock
March 01, 2003
Knit-Rite announces its new X-Wool Prosthetic Sock with X-STATIC, the silver fiber. The X-Wool Sock features a high-performance fiber system made with pure silver. Silver is naturally antimicrobial, enabling X-STATIC to safely inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Silver also has the best possible thermodynamic properties, so your patient stays cooler in summer and warmer in winter. X-STATIC on the inside of the sock accelerates the movement of moisture away from the body through evaporation.
The absorbent virgin wool is thick and cushioning. Lycra allows the sock to contour without stretching out and also accommodates flexion. These new socks are fleeced to add softness, resist shrinkage, and are easily cared for. Thickness color coding is: 3-ply yellow, 5-ply green, 6-ply gray.
