• Helps patient understand orthotic fabrication process

DISADVANTAGES
• Patient responsible for storage

ABOUT
Submitting an existing positive model from a patient’s previous orthotics is another option to create custom frames and reproduce orthotics. Kevin Orthopedic accepts positive models produced by any laboratory or clinic. Orthotics can be produced with the low congruency variation from their pre existing models.

Because orthotics are hand finished, there will be inevitable variances in the final device from the previous device. Pictures of the previous devices and tracings of coverings are helpful for lab technicians to duplicate devices as best as possible.

Despite the hand finished height and width, the contour of the frame should have the smallest variance of only 1%, matching with nearly perfect congruency.

Note: For more visual images depicting positive model vacuum formed process, please see page 20, images 8-10.

Note: To ship an existing model to the lab, print FedEx labels at www.kevinorthopedic.com/fedex
