Low-temperature thermoplastics (LTTP) are the materials that are widely used to fabricate patient-customizable splints, braces and/or supports. LTTP material activates in relatively low heat conditions (e.g., water between 60-75C). Unlike the high-temperature thermoplastics, after warming up, LTTP materials can be placed directly on the patient while molding the splint.
Modern “dynamic” methods of bone fracture and other treatments in orthopedic practice aim to eliminate the complications from the use of rigid and long-term immobilization with plaster or synthetic casting materials. Current state-of-the-art treatment approaches in orthopedics favor intermittent use of immobilization in combination with limited exercise and physiological stress on the injured bone in order to stimulate the healing process. LTTP materials, because of the ease of application, removal and re-installation, allow for limited and safe mobilization of the injured extremities, a condition that is desirable for optimal recovery, functional treatment or additional therapy.
TURBOCAST® is a unique low temperature thermoplastic material with thin foam coating on both sides. It is ideal for splinting, casting and bracing applications.
Turbocast® Ortho turns transparent when heated which is an excellent indication that the material is ready for application

Information and Pictures
Orthotherapy is a novel clinical approach for management of orthopedic and neurological diseases through a combined application of kinesiotherapy and splinting.
Pre-cuts of thermoplastic materials, so-called "splint blanks", are convenient patterns that would save your time and money.
Pre-fabricated splints are finished orthopedic devices that are ready for immediate application. These splints can be used in a cost- and time-efficient manner without specialized equipment or
