Dear Readers,

We are offering a new online tutorial on our website: Processing the Padding Material. We have also updated the production technique described in the online tutorial Flexible Seating Area. Read about interesting facts of both tutorials in today’s issue.

With best regards from Lüneburg,

New: Processing the Padding Material

In this online tutorial, we demonstrate a simple technique for processing the padding material for an orthosis. Cutting the material is especially easy with thedummy for the padding material, which is used as a placeholder for the padding during the production of the orthosis. This tutorial shows how to repurpose the dummy as a cutting template. In doing so, you comfortably cut out the padding – or several paddings, so that your patient always has a back-up for exchanging the padding. We use the skin-friendly xDRY towelling padding material that has an antimicrobial coating, is breathable and fast-drying and offers a high wearing comfort.

Updated: Flexible Seating Area

We have improved the production technique described in this online tutorial. The femoral shell is now designed more flexible at the top. This has advantages for you and your patient: For you, the production of the femoral shell is easier this way. For your patient, the seating comfort is higher since the femoral shell can better adapt to the changes of the thigh shape.
