Controlled stretch and drape allows firm handling for a rigid, conforming splint
Resistance to Stretch
â¢Moderate to maximum resistance to stretch.
â¢This thermoplastic splinting material can be stretched and pulled around curves without thinning or growing out of control.
â¢Able to position limb and aggressively hold and stretch material to form splints.
â¢Takes on the contours of the hand for an intimate fit using only moderate pressure.
â¢Thinner material follows the curves of the hand and fingers with minimal handling.
â¢Moderate memory will spring back slightly while warm.
â¢Splints will hold their shape against the pull of strong dynamic components and against hypertonicity.
â¢Uncoated Solarisâ¢ provides a slightly sticky surface when warm to keep material in place for an intimate fit.
â¢A permanent bond is achieved by applying dry heat and pinching it together firmly. No solvent is needed.
â¢Fingerprints and other marks disappear or can be smoothed away by rubbing the surface gently while the splint is warm.
â¢Leaves sealed, smooth edges when cut warm
â¢Ideal for abnormal tone conditions or joint contractures when patients are unable to cooperate.
â¢Its unique qualities make Solarisâ¢ perfect for upper and lower extremity positioning splints and pediatric, nonweightbearing AFOs.
â¢The combined drape with controlled, resistive stretch of Solarisâ¢ allows aggressive, firm handling to form a rigid splint that conforms perfectly to the body.
Working time (1/8″)
â¢Allows four to six minutes to form and harden after softening in 160° F (71° C) water.
