Guest Post: Jeff Boonstra, CP, How to make those spectra socks last longer on a carbon fiber prosthetic foot. Use Shearban on the “toe”

Here is a tip that I thought was very cool.

Jeff Boonstra, CP, of Advanced Prosthetics Center emailed me this tip. Cover the toe of your carbon feet with a piece of shearban. This will increase the length of the spectra socks on the high activity feet by at least 2 times.

    Nice, gotta try this. I wonder if leather would work in a pinch (although its friction is higher). Thanks.
