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 a Pro Armour Lite?
We find that lightweight footwear, like a running shoe works best. Most sandals, shoes or boots should work fine too. Remember: patients must wear the black sock provided, then put the Pro Armour Lite on.
Can patients keep it on their limb permanently?
Yes, just remind patients to take it off if they plan on walking without footwear on.
Where can I order more stock?

For New Zealand Limb centres, follow your standard order procedure. For outside of New Zealand, please enquire here.

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