Manosplint Carolina is a low-temperature thermoplastic that provides strong support – ideal for patients with a lot of tone. Carolina is very easy to work with and has a great ‘feel’ when moulding.
Other features include: moderate memory, moderate resistance to stretch, moderate drape, high rigidity, quick, permanent bonding and resists fingerprints.
Manosplint Carolina can be printed to provide fun, exciting splints – please select your pattern below or contact us if you want a custom design.
Moderate memory allows for light modifications and edge finishing.
Resistance to stretch (RTS):
High – can be handled firmly.
Low drape enables this to be handled firmly and is ideal for larger splints.
High. Carolina holds shape against the pull of the patient or dynamic components.
Bonding & Finish:
This non-coated material is slightly sticky and stays in place during application. It will easily form a permanent bond during orthosis fabrication. The firm material resists fingerprints to give a smooth, matt finish. The edges ‘self seal’ easily if the material is cut when still warm.
The base material is provided in white only, however it may be printed with any design. (Printing is provided on the ‘Demi’ 30.5 x 46cm size only).
Available as solid or 1% perforation
