The Liner Wand Announces Affiliation with The Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation


Warwick, Rhode Island, USA - The Liner Wand, offering the first deep cleaning prosthetic liner coating clinically proven to reduce skin irritation and odor, announced it has signed an affiliate agreement with the Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF & The First Clinics).

The agreement will provide The Liner Wand with an opportunity to participate in OPAF events, provide product samples to event attendees, and market The Liner Wand to OPAF audiences. OPAF will also participate in activities produced and sponsored by The Liner Wand, including “Communi-TEE Social” events featuring leading surgeons, psychologists, and industry innovators.

“We are excited about this partnership with OPAF, which will enable us to spread awareness of The Liner Wand to participants through their various First Clinic Events,” said Elizabeth Stone, MBA, The Liner Wand chief executive officer. “Our goal of improving the quality of life for amputees meshes well with OPAF and its objective to foster physical fitness, community participation, and peer interaction.”

“Aside from adaptive recreation, part of our goal at OPAF is to provide access to products and information for the orthotic and prosthetic user. As an ABC Certified Prosthetist Orthotist, sanitization and cleanliness of prosthetic liners is something I educate my patients on daily. The Liner Wand is a unique product that Prosthetic users should have access to and knowledge of if they are looking for a sanitization product for their liner. As we resume our in-person First Clinics, be on the look-out for trial samples of The Liner Wand to trial the product.” said Travis Young, CPO, OPAF president. “We look forward to our partnership with The Liner Wand and the integration of our information and reach into each other’s events, allowing a larger audience to experience these informative and inspiring happenings.”

OPAF, founded in 1995, was initially dedicated to providing financial and in-kind support to the 1996 Paralympics. OPAF now generates its own initiatives through partnerships with individuals, organizations, and institutions engaged in improving the quality of life for those with physical disability, limb loss, and limb difference.

The Liner Wand features Apocrine™, a patented titanium-based technology that makes cleaning prosthetic liners and prosthetics quick and easy while delivering a deeper clean that lasts up to two weeks with one application. Designed as the “standard of care in prosthetics hygiene,” the single thin-film coating of Apocrine™ solution creates a protective barrier that helps decontaminate the liner or skin fit and remove the bacteria by-products that cause odor and skin irritation.

The Liner Wand, the first clinically proven, prosthetist recommended prosthetic liner care and hygiene system, features a proprietary system that effectively addresses the liner hygiene challenges of more than 2.1 million amputees in the United States alone.
