TECHNICAL DETAILS

Light Weight
Comfortable
Less chances of break down
Light weight for easy mobility
Conforms well to contours for a more comfortable better fitting cast
Porous weave allows the skin to breathe
Directions for use
Slip on a stockinette up the affected part and wrap with cast padding
Gloves must be worn while wrapping the casting tape, since the resin in the tape will adhere to the skin
Select proper width of the cast. Open only one roll at a time, since room humidity will initiate hardening
Immerse the roll of tape in water with room temperature (20-25 Degree Celcius ) for 5-10 seconds and squeeze 3- 5 times
Construct the cast by wrapping spirally, over padding the previous turn one-half to two-third the width of the cast
Just three or four layers provide a strong non-weight bearing cast and five to six layers are typically adequate for weight-bearing cast
About 3-4 minutes after immersion in water the cast is sufficiently rigid to prevent further moulding
Smooth and rub the tape to achieve good adhesion
After application, allow 20-30 minutes before applying loads to weight-bearing casts
Indications
For most orthopaedic applications in which rigid immobilisation is required, including fresh or unstable fracture
