How it works and looks

  • Transparency indicates when the material is ready to mould. Allows for proper alignment and visual monitoring over anatomical landmarks.
  • Temporary adhesion during splint fabrication and reliable permanent bonding by using dry heat. Tackiness helps orthosis stay in place during fabrication. All attachments and outriggers can be adhered easily.
  • 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.
  • Completely remouldable and can be adjusted easily after reheating locally.
  • Avoids waste of material.
  • Soft version has less resistance to stretch and more drape, while stiff version has increased resistance to stretch and less drape.

Recommended applications

  • Unlimited potential for the fabrication of all size splints with extra care and prevention of pressure points. Excellent as a base for different attachments.
  • 'Soft' version recommended for: small finger orthoses, thumb orthoses, resting hand orthoses, wrist and wrist/thumb orthoses and circumferential designs.
  • 'Stiff' version recommended for: large orthoses, long arm orthoses, AFO’s and fracture and anti-spastic bracing.

We stock the high stretch (soft) version but a low stretch (stiff) version is available. Extreme patient comfort. Soft version has less resistance to stretch and more drape. Stiff version has increased resistance to stretch and less drape. Contact us if you require the low stretch (stiff) version.
