Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Swiftwick announced today that the VALOR amputee liner sock, the most advanced moisture management line sock on the planet, is officially available for purchase. The VALOR liner sock for amputees is one of the most ingenious breakthroughs in the realm of prosthetics in a generation by directly addresses the issue of sweat build up inside the prosthesis that all amputees, whether arm or leg, face on a daily basis. The VALOR amputee liner sock deploys the same technology that regular Swiftwick socks use, including superior moisture management and climate control without the use of chemicals, managed compression that improves circulation and reduces swelling and revolutionary active antimicrobial properties that reduce odor causing bacteria.
“As a below the knee amputee I, along with thousands of other amputees, struggle every day with comfort and fitting related problems from sweat, bacteria and limb volume changes inside my prosthesis. The Swiftwick VALOR amputee liner sock helps manage all of those issues,” says John Mabry, Swiftwick product manager. “We are excited very excited that amputees and prosthetists around the world are finally able to get their hands – and stumps – on this game-changing product.”
The VALOR amputee liner sock was debuted at the Challenged Athletes Foundation’s (CAF) annual fundraising race, the San Diego Triathlon Challenge and within weeks, product has been delivered to numerous amputee veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C., several orthotic and prosthetic clinics across the United States, as well as to 3-time medal winner at the 2012 Paralympic Games, Blake Leeper.
