How it works and looks
Tape roll allows to use circumferential wrapping and moulding technique. Time saving. No need to make pattern.
Perfect size (width)s for small and larger orthoses. Can accomodate different sized fingers and different orthotic designs.
Allows precise modelling conform the patient anatomy, for example the webspace.
Orthoses can be remoulded when corrections are needed. Avoids waste of material.
Soft touch feeling and smooth edges. Lightweight. Allows ventilation. Prevents maceration of the skin. Excellent patient comfort and compliance.
Allows to easily cut small pieces to use as reinforcement of the orthoses when desired.
Overlapping seams are not perceptible on the inside. Application of multiple layers raises rigidity and stability of the orthoses.
Perfect to use in case of traumatic and orthopaedic conditions which require quick and easy immobilization orthoses.
Recommended also as first aid product in casting rooms and operating theatres. All types of immobilization finger orthoses, and hand based wrist and thumb orthoses.
Precise modelling and snug fit prevent pressure points.
Allows to fabricate static progressive orthoses to regain range of motion.
Also recommended to use in case of fragile skin, for example for patients suffering a poly-arthritic condition.
Fabrication of larger orthoses will require dry heat for bonding.
