I just met with a patient that is wearing a suction socket and he has come up with a novel tip to address some of the issues he was having at the top edge of his liner. He was getting some skin irritation around the top of the liner. This is a common problem for those that wear a liner with fabric on it because the transition from the liner to the sleeve is square and therefore the sleeve bridges and the skin can get pulled into the gap that is created. The ideal way to deal with this issue is to some way bevel the liner so the sleeve does not bridge. My patient said, “…Brent, I have taken care of the skin problem. I have a long liner and a short liner and alternate the wearing days.” His solution is simple and I must admit I am a little embarrassed not to have thought of it. If liners are different lengths that means that the skin is not taking the same pressure every day. The solution has worked for him and I will now suggest that for any future patient that have a suction socket.
