About ALPS Slouth, LLC
ALPS South, LLC is a leading US medical device manufacturer specializing in advanced gel-based prosthetic liners. Dedicated to Making Lives Better, the ALPS Research & Development Team, composed of engineers and technicians, continually focuses on exploring cutting-edge technology and developing innovative solutions to identify and anticipate the unique needs of below and above-knee amputees.
It manufactures 100% of its products, from knitting fabric to molding. ALPS’ specially formulated gels, EasyGel, GripGel, and HD Gel, are geared to meet different needs. The EasyGel’s soft, powdery texture, created through powerful antioxidants, provides the best comfort for amputees with sensitive residual limb skin. The GripGel’s smooth, tacky texture helps to reduce bunching in the popliteal region. The High Density (HD) Gel’s dense, firm texture provides active amputees with a great degree of control and stability.
With three types of gel and four types of fabric, the perfect fit can be achieved. ALPS South’s wide selection of prosthetic gel liners and sleeves make it possible to provide the best solution for each amputee’s needs. As for ALPS liners, the majority are available in either the locking version or cushion version, furthering the ability to meet all possible wants and needs. Plus, finding the perfect solutions can be made quick and easy by using the ALPS Liner Selection Tool available in the App Store, Google Play, or desktop.
Aside from liners and sleeves, ALPS has also developed several other product lines to further benefit the needs and wants of above and below-knee amputees.
Its newest and most popular product, the Vacuum Integrated Pump (VIP), stabilizes the residual limb to overcome all issues connected with the limb changing volume throughout the day.
Its prosthetic socks, made with Coolmax fibers to remove sweat from the body, helps to provide more comfort while accommodating volume. The best part – the socks are available in three styles, three sizes, and three levels of thickness to fit and accommodate all lower-level amputees.
The ALPS skincare line includes seven robust solutions to meet various needs. Its most popular skin product, Antioxidant Cream, assists with soothing pain, itchiness, or irritated skin. Other products include lotion and ointments to help soothe dry and sensitive skin, antiperspirant spray to control and eliminate issues caused by excess sweat, prosthetic cleanser, and prosthetic lubricant that makes it easy to don the liner while eliminating the sticky feel.
Lastly, ALPS three variations of locking systems provide a convenient one-way gear that allows users to push in or wind out the limb into the prosthetic socket.
ALPS South’s mission, Making Lives Better, is a constant reminder to continue inventing and delivering the best products at affordable costs, providing maximum value to you and your patients. Although headquartered in Saint Petersburg, Florida, you can rapidly find the best solutions worldwide through its strategically placed global locations in China, Europe, Italy, Japan, and Ukraine.
