Prosthetic Hygiene

During the time between follow up appointments with your prosthetist, it is imperative that you maintain a high quality of personal hygiene.

Any part of the prosthesis that is in direct contact with your skin should be washed daily and all residual soap needs to be removed. This includes but is not limited to: washing your liners (if you have one), washing shrinkers that you may be using and washing any socks that are used to maintain proper fit inside the prosthesis.

It is also very important to wash your residual limb everyday to prevent skin irritations, infections, and/or other complications. Proper hygiene instruction will be given to you by your prosthetist. As always, ask is something seems unclear.
