There are so many reasons that ActivArmor’s watersafe, hygienic, fully custom, and breathable orthoses are superior to the existing casting and splinting technologies. Take a look at the answers to our frequently asked questions below to dive deep into the ActivArmorTM product and process.

ActivArmor's Customized Design and Fabrication System
The proprietary ActivArmor™ process includes a scan (precise to 0.5 mm), creating a 3D model of the patient’s limb, and designs a completely individualized and fitted splint based on the physician’s specific positioning and instructions for each patient’s unique needs. The ActivArmor™ device is then custom fabricated for the patient from 100% recyclable ABS plastic.
ActivArmor™ is a support device custom fit to each patient’s unique body, mapped to the contours of the limb or injuries requiring stabilization and support.
ActivArmor™ uses (3D) 3-dimensional mapping of the injured limb to create the exact fit for the client unlike other methods of immobilization (low temperature thermoplastic or progressive layers of tape molded directly upon the client).
Unlike traditional cast and immobilization methods ActivArmor™ is custom fabricated using a high temperature thermosetting plastic yielding the strong and unique ActivArmor™ immobilization device.
With the N95 mask shortage, ActivArmor has stepped to the plate with a lightweight, transparent, fitted facemask. Here’s how they compare.
ActivArmor™ devices are labeled for external, non-sterile use to provide support, stability,
and immobilization for extremities. ActivArmor™ has not been formally tested for acute
injuries and is not intended to provide bone-level strength to the extremity. The physician or
non-physician provider (NPP) – therapist, NP, PA-C etc. should determine the appropriate use,
time, duration and intensities, for the medical condition.
The ActivArmor™ devices are to be used at the sole risk of the consumer, and are not labeled
for use with injuries requiring physician oversight or for acute injuries. ActivArmor™ is not
responsible for injury or adverse healing outcomes from device use or misuse.
WARNING: ActivArmor is not suggested for use when there is acute edema or
may be present in the future. For athletes, the sport coating is recommended for activities
that incur high force impact or torque on the device. Use according to doctor’s orders.
