Fiberglass casts a thing of the past?
Thanks to Exos, a new, easy-to-apply, thermoformable brace and splinting product, casts may soon go the way of eight tracks and Polaroid cameras.
Following the successful release of the Exos line of revolutionary, thermoformable arm braces and splints last summer, DJO Global recently released two new Exos splinting and spinal bracing products, the Exos Rapid Splint System and Exos FORM Spine Bracing System.
As DJO Global’s Bracing and Supports President, Steve Ingel, stated in a recent press release, “DJO Global is leading the way in developing innovative bracing products…Exos is an innovative technology platform that will help drive sustaining and disruptive innovation in new and existing markets.” Unlike their plaster and fiberglass forefathers, Exos’s bracing and splinting products are prefabricated and custom fit to each patient by applying heat to the brace or splint for unparalleled support. Exos calls this new technology thermoformability. Many of the products in Exos’s line are also radiolucent, antimicrobial, and most importantly, comfortable, making them an ideal choice for patients and providers alike. Read more>>
