Orfitrans® PETG

NEW thermoplastic for the fabrication of prostheses or orthoses for short-term, supervised, in-office test fittings.

Orfitrans PETG’s clear appearance lets the prosthetist/orthotist verify the suitability of the device prior to final fabrication. The durability following handling, drilling, and/or sanding, and the re-formability following re-heating, make clinical applications and adjustments effortless for the clinicians.
