ORFIT CRYSTAL NS

Characteristics

  • Transparent material during moulding and at room temperature.
  • Non-stick coated material.
  • More flexible material than average thermoplastics, which offers comfortable support.
  • Slightly higher than average activation temperature (80°C-176°F). Requires a full 5 minutes to become activated.
  • Low elastic memory.
  • Lightweight material.
  • Easy to cut with regular scissors.
  • Easy to clean.

How it works and looks

  • Allows observation of underlying anatomy while moulding. Easy to detect pressure points. Less noticeable than opaque materials.
  • Prevents the material to stick onto bandages or cotton lining. Bonds to itself with dry heat and pressure after removing the coating.
  • The flexibility avoids to fully immobilize the patient. The orthosis serves as a call to order to maintain a correct position and prevent dangerous movements.
  • Cools down in a few minutes. Orthoses can be finished quickly.
  • Small corrections can be made after reheating locally.
  • Excellent patient comfort.
  • Patterns can be cut with regular scissors without pre-heating!

Recommended applications

  • Perfect material to fabricate proprioceptive and supportive orthoses, especially when resuming daily life activities during and after  the recovery process.
  • Specifically recommended to make circumferential orthoses offering a soft and flexible support, for example lightweight sports braces.
  • Orthoses to monitor healing wounds and scars. Can be used as a well conforming interface between the burned skin and a hard shell pressure mask.
