The 7-Steps to putting on the Pro Armour Lite

Just in case you missed a step, here are the points William covered in the video:

  1. Put the special sock provided over your bare prosthetic foot
  2. Depending on the type of foot and adaptor, you may need to stretch the Pro Armour Lite for a good fit – especially if brand new. 
  3. Hold the Pro Armour Lite upper with one hand while firmly rolling excess neoprene at the rear
  4. Hold rolled neoprene and firmly fasten the top velcro strap first. The firmer, the better. Repeat with the bottom strap.
  5. Centre velcro and branding 
  6. If wearing for the first time, be sure to take your Pro Armour Lite on and off a few times before cutting the velcro straps to fit. 
  7. Put some footwear on and go!
