Orfitrans® Medium Soft

The perfect material to use for vacuum transtibial and transfemoral sockets

Orfitrans Medium Soft combines enough rigidity to give control and enough flexibility to allow range of motion. It is structurally sound and will not cold flow at thinner areas of the flexible interface.

The material will maintain its shape and the volume does not change or stretch outward. It allows for the change or flattening of the limb when sitting. This ensures that the socket will conform to the change to prevent loss of suspension while maintaining comfort. It is ideal to use for vacuum transtibial and transfemoral sockets.

Orfitrans Medium Soft does not stick to material. A low coefficient of friction makes donning easy. Orfitrans Medium Soft offers a low-cost way to achieve high trim lines and low frame with excellent control.

Available in thicknesses of 8 mm, 10 mm, 12 mm and 15 mm.
