Ortho-care Casting, LLC, is committed to providing casting and hip spica products based on expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) film technology. This is the same material that was used in GORE® PROCEL® Cast Liner and GORE® PANTALOON® Hip Spica Liner, which are now discontinued.
ORTHO SKIN™ is a breathable, waterproof, washable cast padding that uses the same ePTFE film and construction as GORE® PROCEL® Cast Liner. ORTHO SKIN is intended for use in external orthopedic fixation devices that require padding. When ORTHO SKIN is used with a fiberglass casting tape, it forms a cast that can be washed or immersed in water.
SPICA SKINZ™ Hip Spica Liner is a breathable, waterproof hip spica liner that uses the same ePTFE film as GORE® PANTALOON® Liner. SPICA SKINZ protects the cast and padding from becoming soiled by urine and excrement. In addition, patient cleaning and hygiene is simplified by allowing for urine and excrement to be removed from underneath Spica Skinz.
SPICA SKINZ is manufactured from a breathable, waterproof expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane. Spica Skinz Hip Spica Liner is intended for use in body cast applications where the physician determines the need for a barrier to urine and excrement.
