Characteristics How it works and looks
Transparent when activated Transparency indicates when the material is ready to mould allows for proper alignment and visual monitoring over anatomical landmarks.
Non-coated material Temporary adhesion during splint fabrication and reliable permanent bonding by using dry heat. Tackiness helps orthosis stay in place during fabrication. All attachnments and outriggers can be adhered easily.
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.
Easy to trim edges Avoids waste of material.
