Orthotics & Prosthetics
The use of plastics for prosthetics and orthotics has grown over the past decades due to advancements in the composites available for use in these products. Plastic braces for knees, hips, ankles and other joints provide lightweight support that allows patients to move more freely.
Plastic components in prosthetics ensure more life-like operation, with high-wear, lightweight components. Newer composites are biocompatible and can be used for implantable devices used for support or joint replacement. These plastics are not rejected by the human body and are able to perform well for years due to their high wear and self-lubricating properties. In addition, these devices can be machined to exact specifications, allowing for a precise fit within the replacement joint and smooth operation of the joint.
