There are a few different ways of donning a prosthetic sleeve, however to encourage a long life of your Anatech sleeve, they should be rolled up before applying to prosthesis and then unrolled into place. As this product is meant to be snug and has a non-slip interior, this method of donning will help prevent ripping of the sleeve which is generally caused by the incorrect application of pulling on. The product is taken off in similar manner, simply by rolling off. Speak your prosthetist for specific tips on applying your prosthesis and sleeve.

This happens when the sleeve has been left in a rolled up position overnight or for an extended period of time. This will cause the neoprene to lose its memory and eventually it will lose its effectiveness. We highly recommend that all products should be unrolled when not in use.
