ABOUT
Protex is a thin, synthetic leather top cover material that sits on the superior surface of the orthotic, covering the entire heel cup and extending to a desired length: mets, sulcus or toes. It is commonly selected for dress devices because of its attractive glossy black appearance, its minimal thickness and weight, and resistance to harboring bacteria and odor.


Protex tends to be more stiff and more water resistant than glove leather; however, it is not recommended for high levels of activity because of its lack of padding. As a top covering, Protex covers any modifications or additional materials requested and comes into direct contact with a patient’s plantar foot.

Note: Pairing Protex with a cushioned layer (e.g. Myolite) will provide more comfort if desired.
