This material is the ideal choice for crafting robust and supportive orthotic devices. It serves as an excellent foundational material for various outrigger and resting hand orthoses.
Achieving the perfect equilibrium between flexibility and resistance to stretching, Multifit NS maintains its form effectively even when confronted with increased muscle tone. It readily conforms to the contours of fingers, hands, and wrists with gentle to moderate pressure.
When heated for minor adjustments, the fabricated orthosis retains its shape, facilitating easy fine-tuning after spot-heating with a heat gun.
The non-stick coating prevents inadvertent adhesion, enabling molding directly over bandages and cotton linings in post-surgical scenarios. Temporary bonding is possible due to the coating, and reliable permanent bonding can be achieved after removing the coating and employing dry heat. This simplifies the application of attachments and outriggers with maximum convenience.
Furthermore, Multifit NS safeguards against material cross-contamination within a splinting department, contributing to the prolonged hygiene and extended lifespan of orthotic devices.
- Exceptional rigidity
- Moderate resistance to stretching and a balanced drape
- Absence of memory effect
- Coated surface for non-stick properties
- Multifit NS is user-friendly for the fabrication of all types of orthoses.
- Use the Multifit NS 3.2 mm for larger orthoses and patients that require extra support: resting hand orthosis, volar wrist orthosis, elbow orthosis, as a base for outrigger components, and contracture management.
- Use Multifit NS 2.4 mm for all hand based and thumb orthoses, and for full forearm based resting hand orthoses for smaller adults or children.
