Please correct the previous review I sent. I purchased the XL limb sleeves, not the Large as stated in the review. Everything else in the review is the same.
When my 99 year old Mother moved to a nursing home, they started using a "stand to lift" machine to transfer her. I purchased the set of large limb sleeves to protect her shins from pressure when they use the machine. She already has impaired arterial circulation in her legs. They have only been using them a week.
I think the company could also use an even larger size for larger patients. She weighs 150 pounds. They did not fit me at 200 pounds.
Also, the item is better looking than your photo.
