Orthopaedic aids such as prostheses and orthoses are produced in lightweight designs using carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). This ensures that they are very comfortable to wear for patients. Instruments and medical equipment benefit from the compatibility of the composite materials with standard imaging processes which significantly improves medical assessments.
- Orthopaedic aids such as prostheses and orthoses are often made of composite materials due to their high mechanical strength and low weight
- Areas that are purposely made to be rigid can be combined with soft spring elements
- This freedom of design allows a high degree of ergonomics, combined with safety and durability
