Frequently asked questions

Is it waterproof?
Almost! The Pro Armour Lite is seam sealed and will keep almost all water out. Since there’s a small chance water will enter through the top if submerged, we can’t guarantee it’s waterproof.
What is the best footwear to wear with my Pro Armour Lite?
We find that lightweight footwear, like a running shoe, works best. However, your choice of sandal, shoe or boot should work fine too. Remember: you must wear the black sock provided.
Can I keep it on my leg permanently?
Yes you can, just remember to take it off if you plan to walk around without footwear on.
Where can I get a new one?

For New Zealand patients, the Pro Armour Lite is free and available at your nearest Limb Centre – ask your prosthetist for one today! For anyone outside of New Zealand, please enquire here and we’ll get one to you asap!

Why do I have to wear the sock provided on my prosthetic foot?
It makes putting on your Pro Armour Lite a lot easier! It’s also low volume, this helps fit your prosthetic foot and Pro Armour Lite into your footwear without it being too tight.
What will happen if I walk with no footwear on?
You’ll either slip over or put a hole in your Pro Armour Lite. No one wants that! And please be aware, if you walk around with your Pro Armour Lite indoors or outdoors without footwear (sandals, shoes, boots etc), this will void the warranty.
How can I get my foot into my shoe easily?
Wear the sock provided and choose footwear that isn’t too tight. You may also find it easier to remove your prosthetic limb, then put the Pro Armour Lite on, then your footwear. Alternatively, try placing your footwear on a table (or similar), use two hands to put/push your foot into your footwear. Use a shoehorn if necessary.

Reviews

“My Prosthetic Cover has changed my life! It has given me the confidence to enjoy walking along the beach, gardening and short bush walks. At the end of the day I can pull the Prosthetic Cover off and my foot is as clean as a whistle. No need to pull the foot apart after being outdoors.”

“I wear my Prosthetic Cover every day on the farm and now I couldn’t live without it. My foot functions better and I don’t have to clean the foot out. I do a lot of boating on the weekends and my Prosthetic Cover keeps my foot sand and salt free. This is a must for every amputee!”
