Standard conventional construction hip disarticulation socks
The flat measurement width of standard sizes is listed.
Extra length and/or width is available for an additional charge.
Standard hip socks are made in poly/X-STATIC, acrylic/Lycra and Soft-Sock fabric.
The waist has a turned over hem which is color-coded, plus a 3″ leg extension.
Two-ply acrylic/Lycra approximates the same weight as 3-ply wool; 3-ply acrylic/Lycra approximates the weight of 5-ply wool.
Special features available for hip disarticulation socks are non-standard sizing, hemi-pelvectomy, fly openings (state whether right or left amputation) and elastic for leg or waist.
Specify if bilateral hip disarticulation or hemi-pelvectomy sock is desired.
Sizing: To determine which flat measurement of hip socks to
order, take 10–20% less than half the actual circumference
hip measurement in order to accommodate both the hip and
the waist, and make the best use of the stretch of the fabric.
Each size will fit circumferences smaller than those stated if
stretched in the length, or larger circumferences if stretched
in the width. For instance, a 14″ width flat measurement, 16″
length sock would fit a tall person with a 26″ hip as well as a
short person with up to a 32″ hip measurement. Stretching
in the width shortens the length. Stretching in the length
reduces the width. Allowances should be made in sizing.
Because of the increased elasticity of these fabrics, flat widths
of the socks will be up to 10% less than measurement stated.
