Splinting Materials

Blessing Cathay Corporation is the only maker supplying various patient immobilization accessories in Taiwan for more than 30 years. We offer a wide selection of thermoplastic materials for orthopedics and hand therapy because the hands that need healing are just as unique as the hands that do the healing.
We provide the following recommendations as general guide for selecting low-temperature thermoplastics. Please notice that some special circumstances and the clinician's preference could make one thermoplastic material more appropriate than another.
To order our splinting materials, you can simply tell us the catalog numbers #, such as # AC321W, or telling us what kind of splinting you are looking for so we can meet your different clinical needs.

Minimum Resistance
Hand splints require a material that has a low resistance to stretch. However, there are some special cases in which a small splint requires a material has a higher resistance to stretch; for example, when it against gravity or spasticity.

Moderate Resistance
Medium-sized splints and orthotics, such as wrist splints, elbow splints, neck collars and keen splints, require a material with a moderate amount of resistance to stretch, such as AquaCast series.

Maximum Resistance
Most large applications, such as back braces, foot drop splints, leg braces and spasticity splints, require a material with high resistance to stretch.
