Maximum resistance to stretch and minimum drape allows aggressive handling.
Resistance to Stretch
- Maximum resistance to stretch. Firm handling needed to stretch material.
- Omega™ Plus can be stretched and pulled around curves without thinning or growing out of control.
- Minimum drape.
- Use firm handling, for smaller contours. Best for larger joints of the body needing firm support.
- Ideal for splinting clients who are unable to cooperate due to spasticity or non-painful contractures.
- 100% memory. Ideal for serial splinting.
- If mistake is made in fitting, reheat and start over.
- Good for infrequent or novice splinters.
- Maximum rigidity.
- Upper and lower extremity splints will hold their position even against strong pressure or hypertonicity.
- Uncoated material. Provides a very sticky surface when warm and bonds without the need for solvents.
- Sticks easily to itself. Use as bonding agent to attach outriggers or other accessories to splint.
- Use as a bonding agent to attach outriggers or other accessories to a splint or a permanent bond, apply dry heat to the surface until shiny and attach accessories directly to the material.
- Wet bonds can be released in warm water if necessary.
- For easier handling, add liquid soap to water and keep thermoplastic damp while molding.
- Handling instructions are included.
- Maximum resistance to fingerprints. Can tolerate aggressive handling.
- If pressure or wrappings are removed while Omega™ Plus is still warm, marks will disappear from the surface.
- Use for anti-spasticity splints, lower extremity positioning splints, shoulder abduction (airplane) splints, back supports and for serial static splinting.
Working Time (1/8")
- Sets up in three to four minutes at 160° F (71° C). Sets up quickly saving time if splinting frightened or non-compliant patients.
