Keeping your socks up

Recommended Posts


I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. We had 12 guests for dinner and, like every year, I did the cooking. Lot's of work, lot's fun too.

Anyway, I have a question for all you wearers of the C-leg.

How do you keep your socks from sliding down to your ankles? I am thinking of taping them to the calf of the C-leg but I am hoping that you folks have better solutions than what I am considering.

Thanks in advance for any ideas that you bring forward.

Well I'm not a C-leg user...but I do have a "naked" prosthesis (no cosmetic covering), and I finally just gave up, got an attractive pattern laminated onto my socket, and started wearing ankle-high sox that don't come up high enough to get all "sloppy" on my pylon. Works for me......! :cool:
