Spenco

Neoprene foam covered with multi-stretch nylon fabric

Features:
Resilient cushioning
Low friction top cover
Resistant to decay and odor
Prevents blisters
Absorbs vertical forces
Absorbs lateral shear

Clinical Indication:
Sedentary to active patients

ABOUT
Spenco is a two-layered top cover material consisted of nylon and neoprene that sits on the superior surface of the orthotic, covering the entire heel cup and extending to a desired length: mets, sulcus or toes. Spenco’s nylon, a thermoplastic material that resembles silk, and neoprene, a synthetic rubber that has similar consistencies with wetsuit material, together provide incredible flexibility, comfort, shock absorption and temperature range.


However, because this material tends to absorb and distribute perspiration, it will stay wet slightly longer than other materials. Spenco is also slightly heavier and over time its nylon will delaminate with extended use. As a top covering, Spenco covers any modifications or additional materials requested and does come into direct contact with a patient’s plantar foot.
