Prosthesis cover – functional cosmesis
Benefits at a glance
Be inconspicuous in everyday life
Would you prefer to not be recognised as a prosthesis user at first glance? The functional cosmesis can help. Once it has been fitted by the technician, it gives your prosthesis a natural leg volume.
Do what you want
Kneeling down, changing your shoes, climbing stairs – these are just a few activities where you can now focus on the essentials, because the functional cosmesis harmonises perfectly with the functions of your prosthesis.
Master professional life
In your working life, the focus should be on your field of work and contacts with colleagues and business partners. When you have a functional and inconspicuous prosthesis – thanks to the functional cosmesis – it’s your personality and professional expertise that count, rather than your device.
Benefit from pleasant hygiene
Like her clothing, the functional stocking will need to be washed sooner or later. It is removable and machine washable. What’s more, it protects the prosthesis against splashed water and dirt particles to a certain extent.

Instructions for use
The functional cosmesis protects your prosthesis to a certain extent during normal, everyday use. This applies for example to contact with splashed water and small particles of dirt. The pre-shaped functional knee part also supports your body weight when you kneel down. For more comprehensive protection for your C-Leg 4 or Genium knee joint, please see the information regarding our special Protective Covers.
No. The functional stocking only protects against splashed water.
Yes. It is machine washable at 30 °C. Please select the “Easy Care” or “Delicates” program.
If you are wearing a Genium, inductive charging of your joint through the functional stocking is also possible. You need to expose the charging unit for charging if you wear a C-Leg.
Make sure that the interior silicone is lying on top of the socket material as far as possible (not on foam or similar), for corresponding good adhesion.
Wipe the silicone band with a damp cloth every three days to maintain the adhesion properties.
Yes. Please note, however, that this is a wear and tear part, and subject to natural wear. The service life diminishes or increases depending on the individual level of use. Kneeling in short clothing on rough surfaces for example can decrease the service life.
What can I do if the feedback signals from my knee joint are difficult for me to hear through the functional cosmesis?
Please contact your orthotics and prosthetics professional (O&P professional). He or she can adjust the signal volume.
