Below Knee Gel Suspension Sleeve

Recommended Posts

I have just tried out the gel suspension sleeve and what a revelation!  BUT, like everything, it's not a perfect system. Firstly, it is very  difficult to get on and off for the 'elders' in the forum and secondly THE COST TO BUY ONE IS RIDICULOUS! I have been quoted £80-£120 for one excl.VAT. Why is this so high for a piece of gel filled rubber???  Any suggestions as to an alterative .  My Limb Fitting Centre will only supply one due to cut backs.  Also any who uses this system- how long does the sleeve last??  Help please - anything to make an old lady's life easier to manage. Would a zip up compression stocking do as an alternative? Someone must come up with a bright idea.
