Prosthesis cover – Functional Cosmesis
Benefits at a glance
Great for everyday life
If you prefer a natural over robotoic look for your C-Leg® 4 or Genium®, the Functional Cosmesis can help. Once it has been fitted by the technician, it gives your prosthesis a natural leg volume.
Do what you want
Kneeling down, changing your shoes, climbing stairs – these are just a few activities where you can now focus on the essentials, because the Functional Cosmesis harmonises perfectly with the functions of your prosthesis.
Easy to clean
Like clothing, the Functional Stocking will need to be washed at regular intervals. It is removable and machine washable. What’s more, it can protect the prosthesis against splashed water and dirt. Plus, the included stocking comes in a choice of three colors.
Instructions for use
The Functional Cosmesis protects your prosthesis to a degree during normal, everyday use. For example, against water splashes and small particles of dirt. The pre-shaped Functional Knee Part also supports your body weight when you kneel down. For more comprehensive protection for your C-Leg 4 or Genium knee joint, please see the information regarding our special Protective Covers.
No. The Functional Stocking only protects against splashed water.
Yes. It is machine washable at 30 °C. Please select the “Easy Care” or “Delicates” program.
If you are wearing a Genium, inductive charging of your joint through the Functional Stocking is also possible. You need to expose the charging unit for charging if you wear a C-Leg.
Make sure that the interior silicone is lying on top of the socket material as far as possible (not on foam or similar), for corresponding good adhesion.
Wipe the silicone band with a damp cloth every three days to maintain the adhesion properties.
Yes. Please note, however, that this is a wear and tear part, and subject to natural wear. The service life diminishes or increases depending on the individual level of use. Kneeling in short clothing on rough surfaces for example can decrease the service life.
What can I do if the feedback signals from my Knee Joint are difficult for me to hear through the Functional Cosmesis?
Please contact your prosthetist. He or she can adjust the signal volume.
