How it works and looks

  • Tape roll allows to use circumferential wrapping and moulding technique. Time saving. No need to make a pattern.
  • Perfect size (width) for small and larger orthoses. Can accommodate different sized fingers and different orthotic designs.
  • Allows precise modelling conform the patient anatomy, for example in the web space.
  • Orthoses can be adapted 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.

Recommended applications

  • Perfect to use in case of traumatic and orthopaedic conditions which require quick and easy orthoses.
  • Recommended as first aid product for quick immobilization and stabilization after injury.
  • 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.
