ORFICAST MORE

With double the thickness of Orficast, the innovative “More” version of Orfit’s thermoplastic material on a roll gives you the ability to meet an extensive range of orthotic applications with the same product features that therapists appreciate with Orficast.

The increased material thickness avoids the need to use two layers and provides a longer working time.

Orficast More is available in four widths: 6 cm (2.5″), 12 cm (5”), 15 cm (6″) and 30 cm (12″).

Characteristics

  • Thermoplastic material on a 3-metre roll
  • Excellent elasticity in two directions
  • Adaptable when needed
  • Easy to cut
  • Self-adhesive capacity, especially when dry heated

How it works and looks

  • Material on a roll allows for cutting a strip of material for easy orthotic fabrication.
  • Time saving. No need to make a pattern.
  • Wider versions of Orficast allow for making a volar or dorsal slab.
  • The material is easily stretched to conform to the patient’s unique anatomy.
  • Orthoses can be adapted when corrections are needed. Avoids waste of material.
  • Soft feeling and smooth edges.
  • It is lightweight and allows ventilation. Prevents maceration of the skin.
  • Excellent patient comfort and compliance.
  • Overlapping seams are not perceptible on the inside.
  • Application of multiple layers increases rigidity and stability of the orthoses.
  • Dry heat is helpful for bonding of corners and straps.
  • Precise moulding and a snug fit prevent pressure points.
  • Fabrication of larger orthoses will require dry heat for bonding.
