Our Pro Armour Products are the ultimate in protection for prosthetic limbs. They give patients the confidence and freedom to do more, while protecting prosthetic feet and components from water, dirt, dust, sand and snow.
With two options available, the use of footwear can now be optional.

Note: Pro Armour Products may not fit prosthetic limbs with cosmetic covers.
The suggested HCPCS Code for the Pro Armour Lite is L5962. The final responsibility for correct coding is the sole responsibility of the practitioner submitting the claim.

Frequently asked questions
Are they waterproof?
Almost! The Pro Armour Products are 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?
Can patients keep their Products on their limb permanently?
Yes, just remind patients to take the Lite off if they plan on walking without footwear on. We recommend transferring to the PLUS if without footwear.
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?
What will happen if patients walk without footwear with the Lite?
With the Lite, they’ll either slip over or put a hole in their Pro Armour. 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.
If they are wanting a solution without the need for footwear we recommend the PLUS. Both products work in unison to provide an alround solution to preventing wear and tear and restoring confidence.
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.
Does my patient need both Pro Armour Products?
Our products have been designed to work in unison, to take your patients where you want to be, removing limitations and restrictions caused by wear and tear to componentary. Our Lite will take your patient where footwear is required or perferred and our PLUS is to be used without footwear.
Two solutions working together to giving your patient the confidence and protection they require. Simple answer – YES.
