Excellent stretch (100%) without tearing Very precise moulding conforms to patient anatomy, for example in the hand arches and first web space. Accurate moulding Improves correct dispersion of skin pressure.
Full elastic memory (100%) Completely remouldable and can be adjusted easily after reheating locally.
