Offers creative splinting options while providing warmth, compression, cushioning and comfort.Comfortprene™ Splinting Material is a special selection of neoprene designed to meet the varying needs of clients. Cut out a splint pattern and make a flexible splint in a matter of minutes. No need for sewing or special machines. Iron-On Seam Tape and Iron-on Hook and Loop join pieces together and allow for quick fastening. Benefits of Comfortprene™ are:
Flexible support that conforms to fingers and body contours.
Light to resistive support depending on the thickness of the material and the size of the area being splinted.
Light to firm compression.
Built-in cushioning to reduce pressure point complications. Minimal to moderate warmth.
Lighter weight and less expensive than thermoplastic materials of comparable size.
Latex-free and machine-washable, air-dry material.
Common thicknesses for clinical applications:
1/8″ (3.0mm) for wrist, elbow and lower extremity splints.
1/16″ (1.6mm) for hand and finger splints.
The terry-like plush liner feels soft and dry against the skin. The smooth, nylon liner allows for easy donning and doffing and iron-on tape application. The unbroken loop liner has a soft, fuzzy feel and is most effective for quick hook strap attachment.
