AliMed® Multiform™ Plastic Best for neurological and orthopedic patients. Materials require constant pulling and continual effort to contour.

Use for larger orthoses: elbow, forearm, shoulder, trunk, and lower extremity. Available in nonstick or self-stick.
A study at Gillis W. Long Hansen's Disease Center in Carville, Louisiana, proved it.* In the same study, Multiform Plastic was exceptionally rigid when fully cooled.
