TPE

Frame Fabrication Method Accepted:
Plaster positive model vacuum formed

CAD CAM positive model vacuum formed
Redimold positive model vacuum formed

Features:
Rubber-like characteristics
High fatigue resistance
Elastic rebound characteristics (will return to vacuum molded congruency)

Clinical Indications:
Patient’s who cannot tolerate rigid frames
Sedentary to active patients

ABOUT
TPE is a thermoplastic elastomer material used for orthotic frames. It makes up the solid foundation of the heel cup and the material that extends distally to proximal of the metatarsal heads. This material is known for its flexible, viscoelastic property while maintaining its durability. This material is best applied to assist patients who cannot tolerate rigid frames.

Note: Distal edge thickness is depicted for comparison purposes. The distal edge of all frames are tapered to an approximated 1mm thickness to provide comfortable transition off the frame.
